Concert featuring the world reknowned multi instrumentalist and jazz great James Morrison plus the fantastic RM Corps of Drums.
The Royal Marines Association Concert Band return for the second time this year to the Assembly Hall Worthing on Sunday June 26th at 7.30pm to follow up on their sell out concert in February!
James Morrison ("The Wizard of Oz!") commences his UK tour after this concert starting with a 2 night appearance at the famous Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club in London the following nights Mon 27th and Tues.28th June.
This amazing musician is equally as competent on a saxophone as he is on trumpet or piano! He's so good, that last month he was invited to play for President Obama at the White House farewell dinner whilst touring the USA!
Not only will James feature at this fantastic concert, but the band will be joined once again by the spectacular Royal Marines Corps of Drums from HMS Collingwood Portsmouth to add even more sparkle to this fantastic event.
The band - comprised of 90% former Royal Marines musicians - formed in April 2006, celebrate their 10th Anniversary this very year!
The age band ranges between 30 to 85 with 3 octogenarians still playing as well as ever! We can therefore offer our audiences an unbeatable 1800 years of musical experience!
The music brand covers a huge range, from well known military marches through to musical theatre, famous film scores, all of the big band sounds, songs of Sinatra, Buble etc; pop, well known classics and overtures.
Our concerts always finish with the traditional Royal Marines Finale. Everyone enjoys the feature of Sunset, Rule Britannia, Land of Hope and glory etc; This time it will also include the silver bugles of the RM Corps of Drums as an added bonus! Hopefully, everyone will exit on a very happy note again!!
