Doncaster Big Band Festival

Sunday 27th December 2015
2:00 - 4.30pm : Matinée concert
7.30 - 11.00pm: Evening concert

Venue: EARL OF DONCASTER Hotel, Bennetthorpe, Doncaster, DN2 6AD

Over the years, this big band knees-up has definitely become the most eagerly-anticipated  event of the Doncaster Youth Jazz Association calendar. All current DYJA members will perform in their respective ensembles. The individual Big Bands are featured in order over two separate concerts as follows: The matinee performance (2.00pm - 4.30pm) will feature the talented younger members of the STAGEBAND and the SWING ORCHESTRA. The evening performance (7.30 - 11.00pm) will highlight the DONCASTER YOUTH JAZZ ORCHESTRA (DYJO) and the senior DONCASTER JAZZ ORCHESTRA (DJO Alumni) in concert. The evening will also feature several visiting guests, including Dennis Rollins, Tom Ashe, Dean Nixon, etc..

We take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a MUSICAL 2016!... May it start with us - we hope to see you at our Big Band Festival!

Cheers:  John Ellis and the DYJA Team
