THE BIG CHRIS BARBER BIG BAND    
         
Chris Barber leads his 10-piece band, with its 7-strong front line, playing a wide selection of his favourite music: from his roots in New Orleans style in ‘Bourbon Street Parade’ (still his signature tune) to the early music of Duke Ellington (‘Black & Tan Fantasy’ and ‘Jubilee Stomp’) and Sidney Bechet (‘Petite Fleur’), then further on to blues by Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee (‘Cornbread, Peas and Black Molasses’), moving to soulful blues like Miles Davis' ‘All Blues’ and probably back to ‘When the Saints’!

Over the years Chris Barber has influenced many of today's leading jazz and blues musicians, especially contemporary artists such as Mark Knopfler, Eric Burdon, John Mayall, The Stones, Eric Clapton and Van Morrison.

You can count on an exciting evening of high quality jazz & blues which will appeal in equal measure to the aficionado and the newcomer.
