Chris Barber OBE is one of the last British jazz giants around and a paragon of traditional jazz in the UK. For more than 68 years, he has been active in the music scene promoting, recording and releasing music and touring with his band. 

This year The BIG Chris Barber Band celebrates 100 years of jazz under the theme, Centenary of Jazz
 
This 10-piece band, inspired by the great Ken Colyer Jazz Men, features everything from New Orleans to blues to late 20's Ellington, played with extraordinary panache and skill. On this special night you will hear songs from that age and Chris’ favourites like Bourbon Street Parade, Jubilee Stomp, Petite Fleur, Ice Cream, When the Saints Go Marching In and many more.
 
They stand out as one of the finest, if not the finest, band 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.
