Chester Big Band announce huge summer gig programme

After a short break from performing over the winter period, Chester Big Band are back with a vengeance!

The band, who have spent the past few months rehearsing new music to add to their already extensive catalogue, have announced three major public gigs over the summer months - each one completely different to the next, testing the band's versatility and offering a great opportunity for anyone to enjoy the band's varied repertoire.

Saturday 27th May - Chester Contemporary: The Feast on the Lache

As part of 'Chester Contemporary', a new biennial visual arts festival, CBB are delighted to host the afterparty of 'The Feast': a community celebration involving local groups, schools and organisations; this outdoor festival will see local roads closed and a dish served to all attendees, whilst community groups parade and local heroes are celebrated. The band will then provide the soundtrack to a joyous party, playing to the (hopefully) dancing crowds from the top of a roundabout - a first for CBB!

Time: TBC (mid-afternoon)
