Sarisbury Green Big Band

Welcome to Sarisbury Green Big Band

The big band consists of trumpets, trombones, saxophones (some doubling on clarinet). piano, bass and percussion.
This friendly bunch of local musicians play a mix of Blues, Swing, Jazz, Rock, Soul, Latin and Dixieland.  Listen to this example of The Pink Panther.
A repertoire of over 400 pieces has been gathered over the years, including several rare, unique arrangements.  
The band performs a few times per year in public, with “Jazz in the Vineyard” on Sunday the 19th of July 2020 being one of the highlights as a fundraising event. (more info here).
