Where: Roses Theatre, Tewkesbury

When: Friday, April 5, 7.30pm

Jazz legend Chris Barber celebrates his 70th anniversary as band leader this year with a Europe-wide concert tour that takes in the Roses Theatre, Tewkesbury.

Inspired by the 'King Oliver Creole Jazz Band', Chris formed his first band in 1949 at the age of 19 and has since gone on to become not only Europe's most successful and influential bandleader, but a bona fide jazz legend

With his 10-piece band, featuring a seven-strong front line, Chris plays a selection of his favourite music, including numbers such as Bourbon Street Parade, Jubilee Stomp, Petite Fleur, Ice Cream, When the Saints Go Marching In, and much, much more.
