The Big Band Festival is delighted to bring you a spectacular Gala Concert with Rodger Fox's Wellington Jazz Orchestra and American saxophonist, Jeff Driskill.

Jeff has backed legions of luminaries including Prince, Alan Jackson, Michael Feinstein, Annie Lennox, Michael Bolton, Josh Groban, Steve Tyrell, and Fiona Apple to name a few. He has also recorded with some of the giants of modern jazz including Eddie Daniels, Arturo Sandoval, Take 6, Patti Austin, Clare Fischer, Dianne Reeves and Hubert Laws.

For the past nine years, Driskill has been a member of Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band and has performed on four of his widely acclaimed albums including Grammy-nominated “XXL” and “Act Your Age.” He recently returned from a week-long stint with the BPB at the Blue Note in Tokyo.

Jeff was a featured soloist on Bob Florence's Grammy-winning track “Serendipity 18” from the album of the same name. He was a member of the Bob Florence Limited Edition from 1998 until Bob's untimely death in 2008.

For over ten years, Jeff has been a member of The John Daversa Progressive Big Band. The band has a standing gig at the world famous Baked Potato in Hollywood and plays to packed audiences.

Recently, Driskill was one of two dozen top session musicians asked by Pat Williams to play on his anticipated album, “Aurora.” The album is Williams' first all original big band album since the 1974 Grammy winner, “Threshold.”

During the day there will also be workshops available, you can register for those at www.bigband.co.nz.
