Def. Tone 17 – Amazing 17+ Piece Contemporary Big Band Jazz
Have you ever heard contemporary big band jazz at CICCIC? If not then you’ll be amazed by this concert by Def. Tone 17. Formed just 4 years ago – they played their first ever gig at CICCIC-  to standing ovations.  It sounded just great in our candle lit acoustic memorial hall. Several sold out shows later…They’ll play some tunes you will recognise and you might even get the urge to dance…not to be missed.

Def. Tone 17 In Detail

Who are they? What are they? 5 Saxes, 4 Trumpets, 4 trombones, 4 More.  Roof raising BIG jazz band.  Improv.  Contemporary.  Mingus.  Loud. Quiet. Boof.  Fun.  Serious.  May contain nuts.  No flash gits. No dress code. Weather Report- More improv.  Dancing on the edge.  Good.

Unlike their ‘deadly rivals’…. Def.Tone 17 do not play the traditional big band material. DT17 have a more contemporary take on big jazz. From Mingus to Weather Report to Loose Tubes and on. Expect a bit more Jazz, a bit more Soul, and a bit more to Dance to. It’s groovy baby

Why You Should Book Early

Due to the size of our bands spaces are even less than normal so if you want to be the first to experience this amazing you should book as early as possible.
