Jazz Legend, Chris Barber, celebrates his 70th anniversary as band-leader in 2019 with a Europewide concert tour.
Inspired by the ‘King Oliver Creole Jazz Band’, Chris formed his first Band in 1949 at the age of nineteen and has since gone on to become not only one of Europe’s most successful and influential bandleaders, but a bona fide jazz legend.
With his Ten-piece band, featuring a Seven-strong front line, Chris plays a selection of his favourite music, including numbers such as Bourbon Street Parade, Jubilee Stomp, Petite Fleur, Ice Cream, When the Saints Go Marching In, and much, much more.
