The Rebellion Big Band made their debut performance at the Royal British Legion Hall in Marlow last Sunday.

The band, which is relatively new but highly praised, attracted such a crowd that people had to be turned away.

Michael Eagleton, who runs the Marlow Jazz Club, says: “There was just not an inch of room left.

“It was the third of Marlow Jazz Club’s Sunday lunchtime gigs, and everyone seemed delighted with the tight and swinging sound of this well-rehearsed outfit who breezed through some popular classics. Complete, of course, with a drum solo.”

The Club began life in the early 1970s as The Chilterns Jazz Appreciation Society, they hold regular concerts with a variety of popular and world-renowned jazz musicians at the Royal British Legion Hall.

Their next event features world-renowned jazz singer Marlene Verplanck, who has a career dating back to the 50s. Marlene will be joined by her touring all-star trio, John Pearce on piano, Bobby Worth on drums and Paul Morgan on bass.
