The Durham University Big Band are not only popular local favourites but they also flex their chops further afield as on Sunday February 15 when they appear at the prestigious Pizza Express Jazz Club, Dean St, London.
It's a particularly important gig as it includes the première of the  winning entry in the 2014 Durham Distillery Composition Prize, Homage, by JJ Wheeler. The competition is sponsored by the distillery in association with the University Big Band and was judged by Pete Churchill and Stan Sulzmann. 
It's an afternoon gig kicking off at noon through till 4pm.
If you're going to be in the vicinity of the capital that day put it in your diary now.
Admission £15
Thanks to Peter L. Bacon of the Birmingham based blog, The Jazz Breakfast, for the info. More details can be found on his excellent site.
