Bert Brandsma is a well-known Dutch reedman who is versatile on all saxes and the clarinet but specializes, in his own band, The Dixieland Crackerjacks, on bass sax. Over the past couple of years he has subbed frequently with the Big Chris Barber Band, and then -- following the departure in 2012 of David Horniblow -- Bert was invited to become a full-time member of the band.

Bert has made several videos of the Big Chris Barber Band, many of which have been posted on YouTube. You can go directly to two of them by clicking on the screen shots below. For many more, go to YouTube and search using keywords such as "bert brandsma chris barber" or "abrandsma chris barber".
