Strictly Smokin’ Big Band


Newcastle Jazz Festival stole Strictly Smokin’s gig!

But we’re very happy they did… we’ll be playing our sets as origianlly planned and are thrilled to be sharing the day with Zoe Gilby & Andy Champion, Alan Law’s Trio, Emma Fisk & James Birkett, Mark Williams’ Trio and the amazing Alexander Bone.

Stan Kenton bombastically proclaimed “This is an orchestra!” Michael Lamb would be justified in doing the same! — Be Bop Spoken Here

We’ll be playing two sets from 1945 at Tyne Bank taking you into the evening and rounding off the inaugural Newcastle Jazz Festival. Featuring Alice Grace and our usual array of musicians this will be the perfect way to unwind after a full day of jazz!

Steve Summers, Jamie Toms, Dave Kerridge, Laurie Rangecroft – Saxophones
Gordon Marshall, Michael Lamb, Dick Stacey, Pete Tanton –  Trumpets
Kieran Parnaby, Mark Ferris, Chris Kurji-Smith, John Flood – Trombones
