About GBH Big Band...
GBH Big Band is made up of professional musicians from the Bath, Bristol and Wiltshire regions. The band has enjoyed a career of over ten years together, playing both conventional big band repertoire and more unusual 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 recently performed the UK Premiere of Nils Lindberg's A Christmas Cantata with Cantamus Chamber Choir featuring Jason Rebello on piano.
