The Sunday Big Band Jazz – with Guest Band – “The Tone Big Band”
“The Tone Big Band” is a relatively new band based in Taunton formed to give local players an opportunity to play music in the classic big band tradition, mostly from the 1930s to the 1950s, with Basie and Ellington featuring regularly. Although it was started as a rehearsal band it has played at various local events including Taunton Flower Show, Hestercombe Christmas Fair, Monkton Elm Christmas Celebration and we recently provided the music at the Taunton Salvation Army Carol Service. This is our first visit to CICCIC.
The music we will be playing will be a mixture of standard Basie and Ellington numbers, with a bit of Latin and some more modern big band pieces but it will all be “easy-listening”; nothing too outrageous or off the wall.”
Big Band Sundays
CICCIC have only got themselves a Big Band residency! How many places can you say that about?
Over the next 6 months from Jan to June on the 3rd Sunday of the month there is going to be one set from a 17 piece big band at lunchtime. Each month will be a different theme with different tunes. There is nothing wrong with Glenn Miller, but we are aiming to show the widest possible range of big band styles. The first two are ‘the Sunday Big Band plays Count Basie’ (Jan 21) and ‘the Sunday Big Band plays the Blues’. (Feb 18).
The Sunday Big Band is going to be a collaboration between different Big Band musicians. There is a jazz tradition of ‘workshopping’ tunes in public, but we are going to save you the workshopping and just bring you the good stuff.
3rd Sunday of the month. Doors open 12pm. Band on from 12.15- 1.15. £5
