Recording of Where or When

We might not be able to rehearse or gig during 2020, but that hasn’t stopped us from performing. This is the first of three charts that we have decided to record during lockdown.

Each of us recorded our parts using our smart phones and sent them to Paul (our MD) who edited it all together.

Kelvingrove Bandstand 2019

Hot on the heals of our recent gig at this year’s Glasgow Big Band Festival, we have another cracker of a gig lined up at Kelvingrove bandstand on the afternoon of Sunday 14th July. With big band classics from Basie, Mintzer and Mary Lou Williams included in our set list it’s sure to be a hit with jazz fans of all persuasions.

Timings for the afternoon are still to be confirmed but keep an eye on our website, Instagram (@byresroadbigband), Facebook page or Twitter feed (@BRBigBand) as we’ll post the times as soon as we know them.

Now all we need it the sunshine!

Glasgow Big Band Festival 2019

On the afternoon of Sunday 23 June, we had the great privilege to be involved in the Glasgow Big Band Festival as part of Glasgow Jazz Festival. This year was the biggest yet with the event selling out The Old Fruitmarket in Glasgow’s Merchant City. Who says big band music is dead?
