Jambone and Beats and Pieces

Sage Gateshead Concourse

Sage Gateshead’s own youth jazz ensemble join with members of one of the UK’s favourite contemporary big bands, Beats and Pieces to showcase some joint material developed earlier in 2015.

See Beats and Pieces perform in Northern Rock Foundation Hall on Saturday 11th April, 10.45pm. Book tickets here.

Manchester’s Beats and Pieces have re-defined the big band for a new generation. Finding common ground between Duke Ellington, Loose Tubes and Radiohead, this is a band that is strong on texture and groove, capable of rocking out as well as delivering lush brass and reed writing. With a raft of international awards, and a second album about to hit the street, 2015 is set to mark yet another milestone in the evolution of a remarkable story.

Join the region’s top youth jazz band. Jambone provides experienced young players amazing oportunities to work with influential directors and players from the jazz world and perform at high profile events.
