Description

*Tickets will be available one month before each performance date.

Presented by the Fringe Club as one of the programmes of “Jazz-Go-Central, Jazz-Go-Fringe” project, Big Band Nights feature different local jazz big bands to perform at Fringe Dairy.

The Big BandExpress emerged in 2016 under the leadership of a Trombonist and Band Director, Oliver Cura.  The band is a twenty-piece ensemble built around the core of the successful BandExpress, with the inclusion of additional horns (trumpets, trombones and saxophones) to entertain audiences and events which require the distinctive textures, expression and power of the Big Band sound.  Band members include Hong Kong based Jazz musicians, Freelance Session Players and Music Educators.

The ‘Big Band era’ is associated with swing music and dance halls of the 1930s to 50s. Famous band leaders and musicians of the time included Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller, Duke Elligton and Benny Goodman.  The Big BandExpress pays homage to this deep heritage yet goes decisively beyond by playing diversity of genres covering RnB, Funk, Rock, Jazz-Fusion, Latin and Pop as well as Swing – showcasing Big Band music through the 1960s, 70s, 80s, 90s and bringing it right up to date.  Sets typically incorporate hits from artists and bands such as Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, Incognito, and Swing Out Sisters as well as tunes from famous contemporary big bands of Buddy Rich, Sammy Nestico, Mark Taylor, Dave Wolpe, Arturo Sandoval and Roger Holmes – to name but a few.
