Never miss another 'The Big Chris Barber Band' show
The Big Chris Barber Band
British jazz trombonist Chris Barber celebrates his 64th year as a bandleader in 2013. Chris formed his first Barber New Orleans Band in 1949 at the age of nineteen. In 1953, along with Monty Sunshine and Lonnie Donegan, he joined forces with Ken Colyer. Then, with the replacement of Colyer by Pat Halcox, Ken Colyer's Jazzmen became Chris Barber's Jazz Band in 1954 and has been one of Europe's most successful traditional jazz bands ever since. Today CHRIS BARBER leads his 10-piece band, with its 7-strong front line, playing a wide selection of his favourite music.
