The members of the band are largely professional classical musicians who are familiar also with New Orleans jazz through their spirits and dixieland to the swing. Their performances recall the Americas of the twenties. The old Hungarian songs bring back the atmosphere of the happy times of peace in Budapest. Their concerts are always varied, spectacular and fun, guaranteed relaxation thanks to the many vocals and more often dance performances.

After the death of the band leader Ernő Kiss, the members of the orchestra finished playing together for a few years. In 1984, Zoltán Gyarmati, the saxophonist of the quartet, decided to create a new band with other members in other styles. This is how the Debrecen Dixieland Jazz Band was established at the end of 1984, where many outstanding musicians from Debrecen played in the past decades (Gábor Bolla, Kálmán Erdei, Imre Nagy, Gábor Subicz, Márton Fejes, Sándor Kónya, Csaba Fazekas, Zoltán Molnár, Géza Gombos, Ferenc Mátyás , János Kovács, Tamás Czeszi).The band has received many  foreign and Hungarian invitations since 1985 and has been a permanent participant of the Debrecen Jazz Days since 1985. The Debrecen Dixieland Jazz Band has been a success in almost every country in Europe and twice in the United States, including New Orleans.

Finally Richter Ambrus became the “Young Jazz Musician of the Year” in support of the Hungarian Jazz Association. The members of the Quartet have already played together in other formations but in this line-up for the first time. Most of the repertoire is made up of jazz standards, framed by the compositions of hard and post-bop authors, sometimes with unique, modern instruments. In the sound of the orchestra, there is a decisive role in the lack of harmony, which gives a sense of freedom in common music. The members of the Quartet: Balázs Raboczki (saxophone), Bence Táborszky (trumpet), Márk Miskolczi (double bass), Richter Ambrus (drums).

Daily ticket: 1200HUF, four-day pass: 4000HUF. Only be paid in cash.
