Trevor Mires Big Band
LONDON Spice of Life
6 Moor Street
Festival debut for magnificent big band led by first-call trombonist who has performed with Chaka Khan, George Benson and Tom Jones. Trevor Mires has assembled a collective of some of his favourite musicians and friends to do a one-off show.
You will hear a mixture of originals, re-workings of previously recorded small band tunes, and offerings from fellow members of the band. There will be 3 special guest vocalists: TONY MOMRELLE, ALEXANDER WOLFE and KAT EATON.
Expect to hear some funkiness, some modern jazz, exciting arrangements... and generally lots of fun!
