An afternoon of jazz, swing, Latin and rock is promised when two very different bands take to the stage at Matakana Community Hall on Sunday September 17.
Warkworth Brass will be well and truly in big band mode and they will be joined by special guests The Steve Sherriff Trio playing ‘infectious jazz and groove’.
Warkworth Brass manager Donna Flack says the band has evolved and broadened its appeal in recent times.
“Warkworth Brass has undergone a change of musical style over the past few years, and has diversified into popular chart, jazz and swing music,” she says. “Now incorporating saxophones, percussion and keyboards into the instrumental line-up, the band is able to perform various genres of music, enabling the band to modernise their programmes and encourage new members to join.”
Joining them for the Matakana concert will be professional jazz players Steve Sherriff on saxophone, Alan Brown on piano and drummer Jason Orme.
The performance starts at 2pm and tickets cost $10 on the door, cash only.
