What happened at the Bourbon Street Jazz Festival

30 May 2016

On Saturday 28 May the BIS Big Band and Jazz Quintet played live at the Bourbon Street Jazz Festival in a huge Q4 venue...

The Big Band opened the live music for the event with a performance of ‘I Wanna Be Like You’ in a big band style. The band was fully miked up and the overall sound was fantastic.

The quintet comprising Thanh, Marwin, Nathaniel, Igor and Federico then played a set including ‘So What’ by Miles Davis and ‘Chameleon’ by Herbie Hancock. The improvised solos were fantastic and showed good maturity and excellent technique.

The set finished with the Big Band playing ‘High Maintenance’ by Gordon Goodwin featuring improvised solo sections from Carl Chua, Marwin Keeratibunharn, Thanh Tran, Elliot Zeller, Mai Anh Tran, Igor Vogels and Nathaniel Vo. Special mention should go to Federico Remi  in year 8 who has stepped in to the band and quintet as drummer this term and has learnt all these songs in just 3 weeks of rehearsals.

The band enjoyed playing on a huge stage and with professional sound and lights and many stayed on with their families to enjoy the other performances.
