We are delighted to be making a return to Fleece Jazz. Come and join us for an evening of fast moving, hard hitting, toe tapping contemporary jazz from a spectacular 18 piece big band.

Horn Factory perform an impressive and extensive range of contemporary big band jazz by composers such as Buddy Rich, Bob Mintzer, Quincy Jones, Oliver Nelson, Maynard Ferguson, James Morrison, Bobby Shew, Sammy Nestico and Gordon Goodwin, plus arrangements of music normally associated with smaller groups, including Thelonious Monk, Joe Henderson, Chuck Mangione, Chick Corea and Horace Silver.

Most of the charts have been composed in the last 15 years, bringing the big band genre right up to date with music that absolutely crackles with energy!

Fleece Jazz has been providing modern and contemporary jazz (and some blues) for 27 years. We now have gigs (with some exceptions) the second and fourth Wednesday each month. Doors open at 7:30, and gigs start at 8pm. The two sets usually end around 10:45pm.
