Tomorrow evening we’re playing with trombonist Mark Bassey’s Quintet in our joint celebration of the great Count Basie Orchestra. We’ve called this concert “Fun Time” because it’s going to be fun!
Hopefully, you already know about the concert and already have your ticket because—what you may not know—we’re close to a sell out! We’ve a few tickets put aside for on the door tomorrow, but not too many. Best advice is to come early.
This special concert follows our last special concert at The Brunswick in Hove (Wednesday, 29 April) where we played new music from (mainly) local composers. That was a hugely enjoyable challenge for the band and we’d like to give a repeat performance again soon. Many thanks to our featured composers/arrangers—Paul Busby, Mark Bassey, Simon D’souza, Sergio Sorcia, David Cash, David Beebee, Paul Nieman, and Alex Bondonno—and a special thanks to Abi Flynn for singing so beautifully with us. We are truly in awe of all your talents!
We hope to see you tomorrow—7:30, Brighton Unitarian Church. First in get to select their preferred seats! Oh… and bring cash for CDs. 🙂
