This Big BandExpress was born in Hong Kong in January 2016 by the leadership of Oliver Cura. It’s an expansion of The BandExpress, with the addition of more musicians in a big-band formation.
Big-band music began in the 1930s and 40s, with bands playing jazz Swing tunes. However, The Big BandExpress offers a different vibe, playing a diversity of genres ranging from RnB and Funk Rock to Latin and Pop, and of course authentic Swing. As well as playing the great hits by Stevie Wonder, Sammy Nestico, Alicia Keys, Ray Charles, Michael Buble, the Bigphat Band and the Buddy Rich Bigband, to name just a few, The Big BandExpress also plays its own original compositions. Its members include musicians from bands such as The BandExpress and La Petite Jazzy Jam, plus former HK Disneyland musicians and other active jazz musicians around town. In a big-band formation of 18 musicians with a full rhythm section and full brass and woodwind parts, the band gives the tunes a rich and dynamic tone.
The Big BandExpress Concert Guest Singers: Jobelle Ubalde, Asplund Leung plus some surprise performers.
Limited seats, first-come-first-served.
