  BEN WHITE - Banjo / Vocals  has 20+ years touring North America from coast to coast backing rock, country and jazz artists and all the while playing as one of the unsung heroes in the studio recording tracks or producing literally dozens of album projects over the years. 

  He is one of the founding members of the original Jazz Rascals, which all started as a casual jam session in his Dad's kitchen with Eddy and Dave on a cold, Canadian February and the rest, as they say, is history.  
   Ben has once again returned to his jazz roots with the "new" Jazz Rascals- "this is the music that speaks to me. This is what I really want to play and with Doug and Davey on board, life couldn't be better! Let's get out there and "rascalize  em !"


DOUG BURNLEY - Cornet  Once upon a time, in a land not so far away, a young lad refused to believe the school band director when he growled "You can't play trumpet because you have too big a space between your front teeth".

Since then, the "lad" has played for over 40 years in jazz groups throughout Canada and the States, after residing in South Florida for 9 years, he recently returned to Canada and decided to make London, Ont his home.

Doug considers himself extremely fortunate to have partnered with Benji & Dave, they think alike, have a passion for the music, and are all extremely dedicated to providing their audiences with the most exciting show possible. Doug believes it was fate that brought them together and after listening to them, you might tend to agree.

The "lad" has finally found his niche.

DAVID NEALE - Sousaphone  Began his professional music career in the mid eighties. From the mid eighties until the early 90's he fronted three jazz bands on trombone.  He started playing jazz wind bass with the "Sultan's Six Dixieland Jazz Band" and was the bass player with this group until it’s eventual demise.

He was mentored by Eddy White the cornet player / promoter of the Sultan’s Six. David spent many hours with Eddy learning about Jazz, and enjoying the truly great talent that was “Eddy White". David teamed with Eddy and Ben White (Eddy's son) and the original "Jazz Rascals" were formed in the late 90's and enjoyed great success until the passing of Eddy White. a few years later.

The "New" Jazz Rascals were formed the summer of 2005, when Doug Burnley on cornet, moved back to Canada from Florida.
