The Strathclyde University Big Band is one of only a few long-standing University-based big bands in Britain and has established a reputation for playing varied, interesting and challenging music.
Since the band’s formation in 1978, many dozens of musicians have passed through its ranks. The members of the band are mostly current or former students, staff or ex-staff of the University, together with a few enthusiastic friends from outwith the University.
The band’s extensive repertoire is jazz-orientated. The Drygate gig is likely to include arrangements of jazz standards by Freddie Hubbard, Thelonious Monk, Kenny Dorham, Bill Holman, Count Basie, John Lewis and Nat Adderley.
The band is directed by Ronnie MacNiven and will feature our vocalist, the wonderful Janine Capaldi singing well-known standards with the band.
Tickets £6 + Booking Fee.
