So far, there are confirmed appearances from the North Herts Youth Jazz Big Band and singer/songwriter Roxy Searle, with one more act still to be announced.
In a long-standing partnership with Herts Music Service, Rhythms of the World Presents is giving performance space to this talented group of young musicians as part of the charity’s mission to support emerging artists. Over the years, many of our most successful musical talent has benefitted from the partnership.
The North Herts Youth Jazz Big Band (NHYJBB) is a new ensemble, with the merger of two smaller groups from Hitchin and Stevenage. This is going to be big band jazz for real – it’s going to be a squeeze on the Club 85 stage.
NHYJBB musicians come from Hitchin, Letchworth, Stevenage and even Ware, rehearsing regularly at the North Herts Music School in Hitchin, with support and administration from Hertfordshire Music Service. They perform jazz from the 40s right up to today and it’s always fun.
Support comes from Roxy Searle, an established and talented singer songwriter who wowed the crowd at this year’s Rhythms of the World festival. To find out more about Roxy, go to https://www.facebook.com/#!/RoxySearleMusician?fref=ts.
There will also be one more act, yet to be confirmed. Details will be available on www.rotw.org.uk Doors open at 7.30pm on Tuesday 23 October and this is a night you won’t want to miss if you care about live music and the musicians of the future.
