Saturday 31 January 2004, Hout Bay Amphitheatre, Cape Town
Sunday 8 February, Sunset Concert, Helderberg Nature Reserve, Somerset West
The FMR Jazz Workshop Biggish Band has progressed from the 'amphibious dives' of Observatory to the stylish 'Amphitheatre Circuit' of Cape Town -- and what a fine collection of outdoor venues our beautiful city has to offer!
Having conquered the Oude Libertas Amphitheatre in Stellenbosch in December and the V&A Waterfront Amphitheatre during the Jazzathon 2004 earlier this month, the JWBB is now moving on to the Hout Bay Amphitheatre this coming Saturday January 31 and then the Helderberg Nature Reserve 'Envirotheatre' the following Sunday 8 February. Being a rowdy 19-piece band of musicians, this style of venue also really suits the band's 'outgoing' (ughh..) nature ..
At both these gigs the JWBB will be performing it's trademark repertoire of original Big Band Jazz, composed for us by the likes of Mertyn Barrow, David Ledbetter, Douglas Armstrong and Jannie 'Hanepoot' van Tonder, as well as some new arrangements of South African classics by Zakes Nkosi, Hugh Masekela, Dollar Brand, Chris McGregor, etc
And then to continue in this vein of 'theaataar', we'll be at Masque Theatre in Muizenberg on Sunday 7 March, more about that later ..
The JWBB is an amateur
Big Band based in Cape Town, and lead by trombonist
The JWBB plays original compositions written for the band, as well as arrangements of South African Jazz standards.
