The Jive Bombers

The Jivebombers

10-Piece Jump/Blues Ensemble Led by John Karpenko-Tromb

The Jive Bombers are a Toronto based group that performs a lively variety of off-beat jazz and blues classics from all eras of the genre. Led by Trombonist John Karpenko, there’s always a sense of fun and mayhem when these old friends get together to play their wicked horn-heavy mix of jump-blues and jazzy swing tunes.

Personnel: Alex Dean, Bob Brough & Johnny Johnson (Saxes), Brigham Phillips (Trumpet), John Karpenko (Trombone), Gord Sheard (Piano), Al Henderson (Bass) & Curtis Smith (Drums).
