Thanks to everyone who came to Jazz Jamaica All Stars’ sensational SOLD OUT Lively Up! Festival show at Birmingham Town Hall with Brinsley Forde and Urban Soul Orchestra on 13 October and to our also sensational show at Guildhall Southampton on 12 October. Both gigs were storming and the Town Hall Gospel Choir in Birmingham made the fire of Catch A Fire burn even brighter.
There are just three more opportunities to catch the fire of Catch A Fire (as London on 24 October is already completely sold out).
Anyone in Brum who couldn’t get a ticket should try Leicester (De Montfort Hall – 31 October) as there are still some tickets available at the moment.
Anyone further north can try Leeds (Town Hall – 26 Oct) or – if you’re very far north – Edinburgh (Usher Hall – 2 Nov)
Hope to see you soon, and thanks for supporting the shows!
If you haven’t already bought your ticket to see Jazz Jamaica All Stars with Brinsley Forde, Urban Soul Orchestra and the massive Voicelab choir, we have bad news as the show has now completely SOLD OUT – two weeks before the gig!
Tickets are still available for the following shows, but Usain Bolt Yourself and go get your tickets fast!
Jazz Jamaica Family Fun Club kicked off the Lively Up! Festival on Friday 28 September at Royal Concert Hall, Nottingham with a Mango Spice performance workshop for 70+ primary school children supported by EMJazz.
That evening saw a long-held dream realised for bassist/band leader Gary Crosby OBE with the premiere of Catch A Firewith 30-piece orchestra made up of big band Jazz Jamaica All Stars, strings section Urban Soul Orchestra and the incredible vocalist Brinsley Forde (Aswad) at Royal Concert Hall, Nottingham.
Jason Yarde’s wonderfully rich music arrangements delivered that massive sound for which Jazz Jamaica is so well-reputed. And the band was joined for four songs by the exceptional local voices, Gang Of Angels Choir who put in an outstanding performance having had just one rehearsal with us just before performing it live!
Brinsley had the audience on their feet, singing and dancing, cheering and whooping, and insisting on MORE! MORE! MORE! MORE! MORE!… They just didn’t want to leave!
Brinsley also sang a beautiful acapella tribute to our Lively Up! Project Manager, Fish Krish whose mother sadly passed away a week ahead of the start of the Festival.
