Big Band Spectacular

Three first rate big bands collide, for one evening only, to present a concert celebrating over 75 years of swing and big band jazz.

Since 1998, Horn Factory has been bringing together some of the top musicians in the area to create their own unique brand of fast-moving, hard-hitting, foot-tapping contemporary jazz.

Combine them with the Big Band of the Queens Division, one of the finest regimental bands in the country and a sprinkling of musicians from the Royal Hospital School and it is bound to be a night to remember.

Expect music from Buddy Rich, Bob Mintzer, James Morrison, Sammy Nestico and Gordon Goodwin. But that’s not all… Bringing the big band genre right up to date there will be arrangements of chart music from the past 15 years.

What’s more, the musicians are giving their time and talent for free, enabling all donations at the end of the concert to go to two amazing charities!

Pre Concert Drinks from 6:30pm.
