70 Years of live music of Chris Barber and the music goes on forever!!
The Chris Barber Jazz and Blues Band and the Big Chris Barber Band have thrilled thousands and thousands of fans and music lovers all over the world in the last 70 years. His music inspired so many youngsters who started the British and European so-called "Trad Boom".
An unfortunate fall has made Chris decide to retire. The sadness of his absence has stimulated the Barber Band members to continue bringing the Barber brand of music to the fans and audiences all over Europe with even more enthusiasm and panache than ever before! Always according to the wishes and with the stories often told by the great master.
Chris's longest serving members, Bob Hunt (Chris's musical arranger since 1989) as musical director and trombonist and Mike Henry on trumpet - remembering the great Pat Halcox - along with the sublime horn players and the great rhythm section, can't stop showing how much the Chris Barber Band and Chris Barber's music is still alive. Through Bert Brandsma's informative stories and announcements the concerts are developed in a complete concert show. Bringing the best of jazz to audiences of all ages.
This is the Chris Barber Band members gift to their leader, continuing to perform in Chris Barber's footsteps.
In celebration of the Chris Barber Band music and Chris himself the band have dedicated this concert to the great Legacy of Chris Barber and his music.
