So excited to bring my lovely big band back to Peterborough for a second year running. We’ll be performing music from our first album ‘Weapons of Mass Distraction’ alongside new material we are preparing for the second album we hope to record this year! There’s also discussion of a Christmas album after our successful performance at the Vortex in December - lots to do with the band this year then!

London City Big Band @ The Spice of Life

This is our monthly residency in the charming district of Soho, London and somewhat of a spiritual home of big band jazz for me. The last Wednesday of the month and often featuring tremendous guests (Recently including Shane Hampshire, Steve Trowell, Iain Mackenzie and Anthony Kerr) this is traditional big band playing the catalogues of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Stan Kenton, Terry Gibbs and many more!
