New York Brass To Bring An Energetic Opening To Scarborough Jazz Festival
20 Jan 2017
Stunning! Memorable! Full of surprises! That’s what they will be saying about the opening of this year’s Scarborough Jazz Festival by the New York Brass Band.
The band is a powerful team of some of Yorkshire’s finest musicians packing an arsenal of percussion, sax, trumpets, trombones and sousaphone with a varied repertoire.
They will bring a broad range of styles from jazz to pop, reggae to funk and New Orleans to ska - and without a note of music in sight.
NYBB has had a busy few years, playing all over the UK and Europe including Glastonbury Festival (the last three years and 12+ gigs each time), Paradiso Amsterdam, Wembley Stadium (the Challenge Cup), Lords Cricket Ground, Le Tour de France in Yorkshire and Cork Jazz Festival. And now for 2017… the heights of Scarborough Jazz Festival!
The Scarborough Jazz Festival runs from 22 to 24 September 2017. Tickets are priced at £87 (Earlybird) and £92 (General Sale). Tickets are available from www.scarboroughjazzfestival.co.uk or the Scarborough Spa Box Office (01723 821888).
