Australian Digital Concert Hall: Jack Earle Little Big Band
26 May @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEST
The Jack Earle Big Band is one of Australia’s most exciting large jazz ensembles. At the age of 12, Jack thought it was normal behaviour to form such an enormous band, and with encouragement from his musical family and local community swing band, they came together for their inaugural performance at an annual local festival.
From these humble beginnings, Jack endeavoured to grow the band’s reputation and start booking performances at local jazz clubs, which became regular performing and recording opportunities, making the band a highly sought after group for performances at council and corporate events, as well as workshops and performances at schools and universities.
The ‘little big band’ is a selection of musicians from the full 17-piece, and is made up of seven of Melbourne’s finest musicians, who represent the style, calibre and energy of the big band style.
All box office proceeds from this live-streamed performance go straight to the artists.
