The Guernsey Jazz Orchestra presents an evening of Big Band music, with invited guests. The programme will include the usual mix of big band classics, arrangements of more recent popular tunes and vocal numbers. There will be a bar and cabaret-style seating.
Our Unplugged Club is a fully acoustic night where musicians get to perform their songs completely stripped back and also try out new material to an attentive audience in friendly relaxed environment. So St James Cafe seemed like the perfect space for us to relocate to, relaxed seating and balcony space to socialise without having to stray too far from the music plus the ability to now offer food and coffee as well as the usual alcohol and soft drink selection and a stunning panoramic view of town in the background. Oh and we also have a music themed raffle. What more could you want?
Conductor Alasdair Malloy is the King of The Magical Kingdom and invites every-one to a Grand Ball in his Palace. The music represents the various guests who arrive (Puss in Boots, Robin Hood, The Princess of the Pagodas and assorted Disney characters). The Ball itself begins with the Sleeping Beauty Waltz and finishes with some pieces that showcase some more contemporary dance styles! This popular family concert has moved to the autumn this year. The Guernsey Camerata are delighted that Alasdair Malloy has made time in his busy schedule to return to Guernsey for this concert. Plenty of surprises and fun in store; a real treat!
