Tom Sharp's Jazz Orchestra is returning after their succesful Christmas Concert!
Come and dance your socks off!
The Tom Sharp Jazz Orchestra began life as a rehearsal big band in Leeds, but has swiftly become one of West Yorkshire's most in-demand jazz ensembles. The band started by performing at the legendary SevenArts Christmas Concert, and shortly after went on to win the prestigious Great North Big Band Competition (2016). With Tom Sharp as musical director, the band plays music from all across the big band repertoire of the twentieth century, focussing on the big swingers of the 50s & 60s, as well as showcasing arrangements from members of the orchestra.
