THE BIG BANDEXPRESS
Founded in 2016 by trombonist Oliver Cura, The Big BandExpress is an active 12 to 20 piece jazz orchestra, consists of Hong Kong based experienced jazz/big band musicians. The band evolved out of Oliver’s The BandExpress combo with more trumpets, trombones and saxophones added to the core rhythm section and frontline instruments.
There is nothing quite like the sound of a big band with its bright, crisp trumpets, warm trombones and shimmering saxophones all held together by a driving rhythm section of piano, guitar, bass and drums. The phenomenally successful swing and dance bands of the 1930s gradually evolved out of the swing era by incorporated influences from Latin American and rock styles. Today, the big band sound regularly finds its way into TV and movie scores and still maintains popularity through mainstream artists.
The Big BandExpress continues this tradition playing a wide range of musical styles from its vast library as well as special arrangements from skilled musicians within the band itself. Regularly performing in bars and clubs in Hong Kong, the band is available to hire for weddings, corporate shows and other special events. The band can accommodate special requirements, requests and preferences to suit any event for you.
