The Gareth Lockrane Big Band

At Pizza Express Jazz Club, Dean St, London

In the post pandemic situation, we managed to squeeze in just the one 2021 concert by the Gareth Lockrane Big Band. We set about rectifying the situation with a three-concert residency across 2022 and 2023 with sensational all sold-out concerts, enjoyed by the musicians and enthusiastic audiences. So it’s no surprise we are responding to our customers demand, with this further Three 2024 concerts at Pizza Express Jazz Club, by this sensational 19-piece British Big Band, led by the original writing and arranging of the brilliant jazz flautist Gareth Lockrane. Mention Big Band Jazz and memories flood with the sound of our own Tubby Hayes Big Band and the great American sounds of Basie, Ellington, Dorsey, Evans, Jones & Marsalis. Add to that list the name Lockrane. It’s one of the world’s most outstanding bands & comes from this side of the pond.

The audience to the last concert were enthusiastic. Just wonderful, Totally original “…compelling sounds” “ What an amazing British band of talent

The band will play not only the music from their  first album, “Fistfight At The Barndance”, rated a top five jazz album of the year in the British Jazz Awards, and short listed as Best jazz album in the Parliamentary Jazz Awards, but also new compositions and arrangements, in preparation for their much anticipated 2024 new album, by what has been called “Probably the best Jazz Big Band since Thad Jones & Mel Lewis”The Hoste of Jazz

Gareth’s Band features a combination of established British jazz greats with Academy trained younger musicians, in multi layered arrangements scored for 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, 5 reeds, guitar, piano, bass, percussion and drums in addition to Gareth on the entire flute family.
