Jazz legend Chris Barber will be celebrating his 69th Anniversary as band leader with a special show at Harrow Arts Centre.

Inspired by the King Oliver Creole Jazz Band, Chris formed his first Band in 1949 at the age of nineteen and has since gone on to become not only Europe’s most successful and influential bandleaders, but a genuine jazz legend.

With his 10-piece band, featuring a 7-strong front line, Chris plays a selection of his favourite music: from his roots in New Orleans style in ‘Bourbon Street Parade’ to the early music of Duke Ellington and Sidney Bechet ... before going back to When the Saints.
