The Bede's Jazz Band has the standard 'Big Band' line up of trumpets, trombones, saxes and a rhythm section.
They meet regularly, for two hours every Tuesday afternoon, and are a very dedicated and enthusiastic group.
The Jazz Band rehearses for numerous public performances throughout the year including the Cabaret Concert, an annual Jazz Evening, an outdoor concert on Speech Day, and performances outside school at a wide variety of functions and dances.
Repertoire includes standard jazz and swing numbers as well as rock, pop and show numbers.
Often solo singers will join the band in concert.
The group recently performed a series of concerts on tour in the USA.
“ As an Old Bedeian myself, it is a great pleasure to help a new generation to realise their huge potential in all that they do, both in and out of the classroom. ”
