For One Night Only…Thurrock Youth Jazz Orchestra Reunion Gig! Saturday 13 August 2011 at 7pm The Thameside Theatre will be filled with the sounds of some very cool jazz on Saturday 13 August when past members of the former Thurrock Youth Jazz Orchestra (TYJO) will be reuniting to perform a special one-off concert. This will be the first time in almost four years that the musicians have come together to play which will be led by former musical director and one of the leading jazz saxophonists in the country, Zak Barrett. This evening of top quality jazz will feature talented local jazz musicians. 20 former TYJO members will perform a wide and dynamic range of jazz styles and repertoire including Latin, Funk, Soul and Fusion with tributes to some of the great jazz musicians such as Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong, John Coltrane, Nina Simone and Stevie Wonder.
Many of the former TYJO members have followed careers in the music industry, so audiences can expect a polished and exciting performance. Tickets are on sale now, priced at £2 each and are available from the Thameside Theatre Box Office on 0845 300 5264 or on the door.
Don’t miss this opportunity to catch some great live jazz.
