Churchill Jazz Band is one of the most exciting jazz-based groups around Cambridge, playing everything from Sinatra favourites to Radiohead and Daft Punk. Maybe you've seen us at a May Ball, at Clare Cellars, or heard our recording at http://soundcloud.com/churchill-jazz-band/sets? Or perhaps you were at one of our previous homecoming shows?
Last year was a great success, garnering a 4* review from Varsity and this year is going to be even better: instead of playing the Wolfson Hall, we'll be swinging in Churchill's Main Hall, so there'll be more of a jazz club atmosphere, and easier access to the bar! Best of all, the band sounds better than ever, and our repertoire keeps on getting more and more exciting. Since we'll be running the whole show, we'll be bringing out all our favourite charts, bringing you an evening of great jazz, swing, Latin, funk, and some surprises!
Tickets: £6 (full)/£3 (students and under-18s - with ID)
Email chujazzband@cusu.cam.ac.uk with the subject heading "25/2 tickets", specifying how many full and how many student tickets, to ensure you don't miss out.
