Live Music: Dr Jazz and the Cheshire Cats
Dr Jazz and the Cheshire Cats present an evening of swinging big band sounds to get you dancing the night away. Look forward to classic big band numbers from Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller and many more, as well as hits from British bands including Ivy Benson and Ted Heath and even some Latin jazz surprises along the way. Completing the line up are two fantastic vocalists in songs made famous by Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra.
Dr Jazz and the Cheshire Cats big band was formed in 2002 by musical director Catherine Tackley, Professor of Music at the University of Liverpool. Although the band is based and rehearses in Lymm, Cheshire, players come from across the North West region. Featuring two vocalists, the band has a wide repertoire, with a particular reputation for stylish performances of classic swing. As a result, the band is in high demand to play for vintage dancing. Concerts, weddings, parties, balls and functions all feature in a typical year in Dr Jazz’s calendar.
In 2022 the band celebrated its twentieth year with a concert in the new Tung Auditorium in Liverpool. Highlights from the past two decades include performances at venues as diverse as the Royal Northern College of Music, Tatton Park, the Troxy in London and Invisible Wind Factory in Liverpool as well as tours to Ireland, Cornwall and London.
The doors and the bar will open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start.
This is a standing event with limited seats available on a first come first serve basis.
The band will play their set between 7pm-9pm followed by a playlist of Jazz music until 10pm.
