The Return of the BIG BAND!
Popular demand sees the return of the John Ongom Big Band plus Catherine Lima to Loughton! Both the JOBB and Catherine have enjoyed sell-out fundraising gigs for the National Jazz Archive.
The outstanding 17-piece band is directed by Angus Moncrieff and will play the music of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, and more. The community band is based in Leytonstone and brings together professional and amateur musicians.
Musical director and trumpeter Angus said: “It’s great to play another concert for the Archive. We’re looking forward to presenting an evening of this wonderful timeless music to help raise funds to support the Archive’s fantastic work.”
Vocalist Catherine Lima will join them to sing numbers by Rosemary Clooney, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee and others, following her own sell-out concert in July. Catherine is a charismatic and entertaining performer with a warm expressive tone which she uses expertly to create moods from sultry to joyous. Her album, Stories and Lies, was released in September 2017..
Tickets are £17.50, and can be bought online.
Saturday 2nd November, 7.30pm, Loughton Methodist Church, 260 High Road, Loughton, Essex IG10 1RB.
