Rip Roarers at the Schools Prom

We're into the second day of the Music For Youth Schools Prom, and Classic FM's Tim Lihoreau has been talking to some of the performers backstage at London's Royal Albert Hall. Here he meets the members of the Rip Roarers.

The Schools Proms - Rip Roarers

The Rip Roarers have been together as a Trad Jazz Band for the last three years.

Four of the band’s players have now left school (Ripley St Thomas C of E Academy) and tonight's performance will probably be the last chance that they will all get to perform together in this line up. They have enjoyed gigging a lot locally, and have travelled further afield with a memorable ten day tour to Cape Town earlier in the year.

Classic FM's Tim Lihoreau sat down with two members of the Rip Roarers ahead of their performance at the Schools Prom.
