Full swing ahead! Blowing brass, boiling drums and swirling basses! The Jazz Maastricht Big Band Night is poised to be a swinging night which takes you back to the ballrooms of times gone by for one purpose: to get your feet moving and your hips shaking. Last seasons edition featuring the Mo Jones Big Band and The Jack Million Band featuring “The Voice of Holland” winner Jennie Lena shook the Theater Aan Het Vrijthof on its foundations with a fearlessly swinging performance.
This season it’s up to the Maastricht rooted Swing Design Bigband and the Conservatorium Maastricht Big Band. The former has built a long lasting reputation within the genre with performances from Brussels and Rotterdam all the way to New York and San Francisco. They don’t shy away travelling outside the borders of the genre. The Conservatorium Big Band is a colourful collection of brilliant musicians, students and alumni alike. They’ve got swing in their bones and groove swirling through their veins as they have a neck like no other what big band music is all about. In short, a double bill which takes you on a fantastic trip through time where sitting still is not an option!
