The Basin Street Brawlers will bring their beautiful melodies and racous rags to Bluntisham Village Hall on April 27.

This is the first concert of the band’s 2018 Halls for All Tour, which sees the group performing at prestigious venues including the Royal Albert Hall in London and Europe’s oldest concert hall, the Holywell Music Room in Oxford.

Alongside these well known concert halls, the group have decided to include a number of the UK’s finest village halls in their schedule, and are keen to connect with local audiences with whom they might not reach in one of the big cities.

The five members of the ensemble are regularly featured at clubs including Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, concerts halls including the Cadogan Hall and Royal Festival Hall, and festivals including the Cheltenham Jazz Festival, and Aldeburgh Festival. In short, they get around a bit! Having launched their critically acclaimed album It’s Tight Like That at London’s Elgar Room, the group are now looking forward to getting out of the capital and visiting new audiences around the country.

With a unique combination of trumpet, clarinet, trombone, piano and guitar, the Brawlers swing and stomp their way through the finest songs of Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller and Billie Holiday. The band are popular with dancers and general music lovers, as well as fans of jazz music – they have always aimed to cater for a diverse audience and especially encourage those who have never listened to any live jazz to come and take a listen.

Bluntisham Village Hall is in Mill Lane. Tickets for the concert and more information are available at:

Doors open at 7.30pm and the concert starts at 8.30pm.
