Roll back to the blues, hot jazz and ragtime
12:00pm Friday 4th July 2014 in News
FB Pocket Orchestra promise visitors to Beach and Barnicott in Bridport a musical extravaganza at their gig tomorrow night.
The band takes its listeners back to the wonderful days of hot jazz, blues, ragtime and popular dances of the 1920/30s and earlier.
The members originally began playing together simply as an exercise in exploring heritage repertoire - taking on a few informal performances and recording dates as schedules allowed.
The FB Pocket Orchestra became an ‘official’ project in the spring of 2012 and released its first album in October.
The aims of the orchestra are to present a contemporary slant on popular acoustic music from the early part of the last century.
