Welcome

About GBH Big Band...
GBH Big Band is made up of professional musicians from the Bath, Bristol and Wiltshire regions. The band has evolved over twenty years playing both standard big band repertoire and more ambitious projects such as Ellington's Nutcracker Suite, Stravinsky's Ebony Concerto (written for the Woody Herman Band) and Paul Hart's Concerto for guitar and jazz orchestra. They performed the UK Premiere of Nils Lindberg's A Christmas Cantata with Cantamus Chamber Choir featuring Jason Rebello on piano and Ellington's Sacred Concert with three choirs and Tina May.

Christmas 2022 will be a good one! The legendary feel-good GBH Big Band Christmas never fails to deliver and if you missed out last year here’s another chance to hear the amazing Georgina Jackson whose sublime singing, awesome trumpet playing and witty repartee is perfectly complemented by GBH under the ebullient direction of Mike Daniels. Georgina blew us away in 2021 with her exemplary swing vocals including seasonal tunes from Ella Fitzgerald, a stunning rendition of What a Wonderful World and a cracking duet with Mike. Expect familiar favourites and more new-found gems as GBH continues to scour the jazz world for new arrangements and original charts played by the best jazz musicians in the south-west to create the perfect big band Christmas to fill your stocking.
