FUNK trombone player Dennis Rollins provided a fanfare for the launch of the new HQ for Marsden Jazz Festival.
Dennis regaled festival committee members and passers-by with some "celebratory hot licks" to mark the opening of the shop in Peel Street.
"Marsden is a great place and it's a great festival," said Dennis, who is to play at the festival in October.
He is in Huddersfield to rehearse a new tour with Huddersfield's prize-winning North Stars Steel Orchestra.
Now in its 14th year, the festival is from Friday, October 7 to Sunday, October 9. It is regarded as one of the leading festivals in the UK jazz calendar.
Also appearing this year are Andy Shepherd, Clare Teal and Soweto Kinch.
The festival, a registered charity, is run by volunteers and has a website at www.marsdenjazzfestival.com
