Winchester Jazz Festival presents Wyvern Jazz Septet & Kasbah Swing Band at The Nutshell!
Wyvern Jazz Septet: 6:30pm
Kasbah Swing Band: 7:45pm
Wyvern Jazz Septet
The band formed in 2017, a collective of some of Wyvern schools most talented young musicians, all with the same keenness for playing music with the emphasis on improvisation.
The bands repertoire ranges from music by the likes of Herbie Hancock, Bobby Timmons (Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers), Miles Davis, Thad Jones and Nina Simone, from the hard bop jazz era, to the free and improvised funk-groove based music of Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters days.
Kasbah Swing Band
The Kasbah swing band was formed in early 1997 by John Plowright who instilled in the band the joys of playing music together and the desire to help local communities. Since its very first gig in 1997, the band has played at many, many events, including local village halls and summer fetes, as well as music festivals, wedding, anniversary and birthday celebrations.
