10.00pm - All Girl Big Band

In a largely male dominated musical genre, to see a full jazz big band on stage with a woman in each section is one thing. To find a full big band of women is stunning. Full sections of trombone, trumpet, sax and rhythm, played with class and style. Add two powerhouse vocalists and you'll be blown away! The band consists of an array of talented musicians – the majority are professional musicians or music teachers in Christchurch. We are lucky enough to have a wide range of ages too, from high school student age to our most mature member at 77, who took up the trombone in her late 40's!
