Milestones Jazz - Horn Factory


One of the region’s finest big bands is set to return to Milestones Jazz Club this December.

The Lowestoft venue will offer an intimate setting for attendees to enjoy the dynamic music of the Horn Factory.

Taking place on Sunday December 4, the band will return to Milestones Jazz Club for the first time since 2015, in which time they have further honed their skills performing at various festivals and theatres- including the prestigious Snape Maltings.

Horn Factory was initiated by former National Youth Jazz Orchestra saxophonist Gilly Burgoyne in 1998 and consists of 18 jazz musicians from the region with proceedings being led by percussionist and musical director Bob Airzee.

The band possesses a varied repertoire reflecting the rich history of big band jazz - classic arrangements from Count Basie, Stan Kenton and Buddy Rich to contemporary material by Pat Metheny and Michel Camilo are performed with the attack that only a big band can muster.

The power of a jazz orchestra in full flight in an intimate venue, such as Milestones Jazz Club, is an exhilarating opportunity and one not to be missed.

The concert takes place from 8pm at the Hotel Hatfield, Lowestoft on December 4.

Admission - £7 / £6 (concession).
