Following their successful appearance at this year's Festival of the Lights, Sunday, March 5th sees the popular local, 18-piece Ritz Big Band appear for Taranaki Jazz Club at The Mayfair, Devon St West.

Originally founded in 2004 by Robin Wells and Stewart Maunder that band disbanded following the death in 2011 of lead trumpeter Warren Orr and younger members moving away. The group's four original members are joined by 14 new musicians including stunning jazz vocalists Mike Gordon and Unity Wara.

There is a traditional big band lineup of saxophones, trumpets, trombones, bass guitar, guitar, drums and piano. Many favourites will feature in music from Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller and Count Basie, with vocal renditions such as Only a Paper Moon, Orange Coloured Sky and Moondance.
