The Big Chris Barber Band are set to take The Playhouse by storm this weekend.

Chris Barber may be 86 years old, but he is not slowing down and he and his band will celebrate 100 years of jazz music with this special one-off performance.

There will be a huge array of songs performed by Barber and his 10-piece band and he will select some of his favourites from the past century to share with the Weston audience.

These include Bourbon Street Parade, Jubilee Stomp, Ice Cream and When The Saints Go Marching In.

This will be an exciting evening of jazz and blues music which will leave you celebrating this fantastic genre.

The Big Chris Barber Band will be at The Playhouse, in High Street, on Sunday at 4pm.

Tickets, priced £20, are available by calling 01934 645544 or online via www.theplayhouse.co.uk
