The multi-award winning Durham University Big Band has been giving musicians and audiences alike the chance to experience big band and jazz music since 1998. Their recent BBC 6 Music radio play for their EP ‘Voyage’ is but one of a multitude of notable successes for the band in recent years.
The band enjoys performing an eclectic range of music at some of the most prestigious UK jazz clubs including Matt & Phreds, Manchester, The Jazz Bar, Edinburgh and Pizza Express Jazz Club, Soho. As well as this they have worked with UK jazz professionals such as Pete Churchill, Ben Cotrell and Joshua Blackmore among many others. Past band members have gone on to study at Trinity College – London, Royal Academy of Music and Leeds College of Music.
Go and join them at The Jazz Café, Newcastle for an evening gig that promises not to disappoint. Challenging, eclectic and cutting-edge big band repertoire is at the musical core of the band’s endeavours. This results in a gig experience which will leave you with a completely different perspective on the sounds the big band ensemble can produce.
