About the Band: Our journeys have taken us to venues all over the UK. We’ve had some ecstatic receptions from some of our big Venture Away audiences – but of course to get them you have to get the stage-presence. It can help if you’re wearing white tuxes! Jazz is a performance art, after all, and the business of “entertaining” has to lift both performer and crowd. We keep adding bits and pieces to the repertoire.
