In early 1917 the very first jazz record was released by Original Dixieland Jass Band: Livery Stable Blues. Now, in 2017 and a century later, British jazz legend Chris Barber and his band The Big Chris Barber Band, will celebrate the record’s 100th birthday, and a Centenary of Jazz.

The Big Chris Barber Band (10-piece!) features everything from New Orleans to blues to late 20s Ellington, played with extraordinary panache and skill. On this special night you will hear songs from across the hundred years of jazz, including Chris’ favourites like Bourbon Street Parade, Jubilee Stomp, Petite Fleur, Ice Cream, When the Saints Go Marching In and many more. The Big Chris Barber Band stands out as one of the finest, if not the finest, of its kind anywhere in the world. You can count on an exciting evening of high quality jazz and blues, which will appeal in equal measure to the aficionado and the newcomer.
