Jazz Night with Malvern Big Band
Malvern Big Band, based in the Midlands, UK, was formed in 2001 by Mike Halliday and Chris Lewis. It plays an eclectic mix of music from the ‘Rat Pack’ era right up to contemporary jazz and pop standards – have a look at our tracks page to get a better idea about what we play.
The Band is always interested in hearing from musicians who would like to be added to our ‘deps’ list. If you do not play an instrument to a suitable standard but would still like to be involved in running the band, please get in touch. There are always jobs to do with the music library, equipment and general management of the practical business of putting on a performance.
We use the standard big band line up of 5 saxes, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones and 4-piece rhythm section. Some of our gigs are fronted by vocalist Garry Rutter. All our gigs are promoted on our website and in and around the Malvern area.
