The Big Chris Barber Jazz Band

Fri 15 February 2019

7.30pm

Jazz Legend, Chris Barber, celebrates his 70th Anniversary as band-leader in 2019 with a Europe-wide concert tour.

Inspired by the ‘King Oliver Creole Jazz Band’, Chris formed his first  Band in 1949, at the age of  just nineteen, and has since gone on to become not only Europe’s most successful and influential bandleaders, but a bona fide jazz legend

With his 10-piece band, featuring a 7-strong front line, Chris plays a selection of his favourite music: from his roots in New Orleans style in Bourbon Street Parade to the early music of Duke Ellington and Sidney Bechet… before going back to When the Saints!

The Big Chris Barber Band combine all these ingredients into an exciting, and often moving, evening of world-class jazz.
