Next Event: Laura B and her Band: Saturday February 25th 2017
Tickets on sale now, see calendar below for full details.
High octane swinging jazz and blues from this six piece band.
One Jump Ahead are led by singer, saxophonist and songwriter, Kit Packham, accompanied by piano, guitar, bass, drums, trumpet and another saxophone. Kit has composed plenty of his own, critically acclaimed material but normally concentrates on the well-known “covers”, which encourage everyone to dance. At clubs, festivals, dances and other public events he mixes in more original compositions – or some of his wry updated lyrics to jazz standards.
The band has an amazing horn section and their repertoire extends from Rat Pack numbers and jump/jive rhythm & blues to classic rock’n’roll songs and many superb original numbers with lyrics that always raise a smile.
