The Big Chris Barber Band 28/06/2019

An icon of traditional Jazz & one of the last British Jazz Legends celebrates the 70th Anniversary of his astounding musical career.
The BIG Chris Barber Band (10-piece!), inspired by the great Ken Colyer Jazz Men, features everything from New Orleans to blues to late 20’s Ellington, played with extraordinary panache and skill. On this special night, you will hear songs from that age and Chris’ favorites songs like “Bourbon Street Parade”, “Jubilee Stomp”, “Petite Fleur”, “Ice Cream”, “When the Saints Go Marching In” and many more.

The band stands out as one of the finest, if not thé finest, of its kind anywhere in the world. You can count on an exciting evening full of high quality jazz and blues which will appeal in equal measure to the aficionado and the newcomer.

The BIG Chris Barber Band is considered by many to be one of the ”World ’s Finest & Respected Traditional Jazz Band“.

Due to unforeseen circumstances Chris Barber himself will not be appearing as part of this evening’s performance. The 9-piece band will still be delivering the spectacular concert you would expect from musicians with many years of experience under the leadership of Chris and the performance itself will not be affected in terms of the musical content and the stories

No upcoming performances.
