Friends, Brightonians, musicians… lend us your ears (or just your opinion). We’ve really enjoyed both our Count Basie– and Buddy Rich-themed nights at The Brunswick, and these were popular with you too — right?
We’ve discussed some future ideas, but do you have any requests. Have you a favourite big band recording you’d like us to try to emulate live? Leave your comment here or speak with us at our next gig (The Hassocks, 12 April, 7:30 pm). We may not be able to find all music, but we’ll try.
Talking of Count Basie — we’re teaming up with The Mark Bassey Quintet to further honour the Count in our Brighton Festival Fringe gig on Friday, 22 May (7:30 pm, Brighton Unitarian Church). More about this nearer the time.
