The Neo Hot Jive Orchestra, fronted by eclectic saxophonist Oscar Laven, is a raging 17-piece big band with the engagement and spontaneity of a small group.
Dedicated to churning out stonking originals in the style of the great 1940s jazz orchestras and only the most banging of classics, this behemoth of a band will be joined by a special guest as they play brand new arrangements of his sublime music:
Bruce Brown, genius songwriter, vocalist extraordinaire and consummate jazz pianist, has entertained countless audiences across the globe. His music is deep-digging, effortlessly charming, and each tune has the laconic maturity of a time-tested jazz standard.
Let's see what they sound like with 17 degenerates raising hell behind him - don't miss it!
$5 entry goes straight to the band.
