About GBH Big Band...
GBH Big Band is made up of professional musicians from Bath, Bristol and Wiltshire. Celebrating 20 years in 2019, GBH plays 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 (a bigger version of a big band! ).
Recent highlights include the UK Premiere of Nils Lindberg's A Christmas Cantata with Cantamus Chamber Choir featuring Jason Rebello on piano and Duke Ellington Sacred Concert at the Wiltshire Music Centre with a choir of 95 and sell out audience.
Apart from enjoying exciting concerts the band thrills audiences at weddings, jazz nights and functions with high quality big band music.
Big Band - 17/18 musicians (5 saxes, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones plus rhythm, section) with or without a singer
Small Big Band - 8 musicians (2 saxes, trumpet, trombone, rhythm) plus singer if required. An ideal compromise on space and price but still all the value!
