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 Europe’s most successful and influential bandleaders, but a bona fide jazz legend.

With his 10-piece band, featuring a 7-strong front line, Chris plays a selection of his favourite music. From his roots in New Orleans style inBourbon Street Parade to the early music of Duke Ellington and Sidney Bechet, before going back to When the Saints…!

The Big Chris Barber Band combine all these ingredients into an exciting, and often moving, evening of world-class jazz.
