Belgarum Big Band

Belgarum Big Band is an exciting new contemporary jazz ensemble with its roots very much steeped in the big band tradition. Its members include alumni from top institutions including London’s Royal Academy of Music, Royal College of Music, and Berklee College of Music (USA), and have performed frequently with UK jazz luminaries such as Gilad Atzmon, Peter King, Andy Sheppard, Steve Waterman, Bobby Wellins, and many more.

Led by US-born drummer Ted Carrasco, they have appeared at numerous jazz venues along the south coast – recent dates have included a Buddy Rich centenary celebration show at Southampton Jazz Club (featuring special guest Alan Barnes) and a triumphant return to the Winchester Jazz Festival.

In the short time since its inception in 2015, the BBB has become known for giving eclectic and energetic performances which survey some of greatest big band music from the 1950s to the present day. Equally at home whether playing classic Basie and Buddy Rich charts or exploring more contemporary material by Pat Metheny, Eric Harland and others, this band is not to be missed!
