A very special gig for us as we welcome the North West’s premier Big Band to the club for the first time. They are used to having Clare Teal & Andy Prior as guests, but this time we are going to raise the roof for Georgina Jackson, trumpet maestro and a BBC Proms singer from 2017. Georgina joins the band to swing her way through lots of your favourite songs from the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee and Nancy Wilson, to name just a few.
Swinging like crazy, this band delight their audiences with charts from musical director Jez Murphy, they have quickly established a reputation as a dynamic and highly skilled outfit with fine musicianship and entertaining performances. The bands popularity continues to grow and sees them performing to sold out shows across the North West.
Georgina Jackson came up through Wigan Youth Jazz Orchestra but is now found gracing Ronnie Scott’s regularly with their Big Band as well as the Albert Hall for BBC Proms. A fearless trumpet player, she is now also known as one of the best interpreters of Jazz standards.
“A talented trumpet player and a singer with a sassy, vibrant style. Her second album, Watch What Happens, puts all of this together and it's a winning combination” All About Jazz
