Ribble Valley Jazz Big Band

Ribble Valley Jazz Big Band

Ribble Valley Jazz & Blues’ Big Band Project

Launched in 2012, it has recruited over 20 musicians ready and willing to prove that Clitheroe and Ribble Valley is fast becoming an important centre for the development and growth of jazz music.

With fine facilities at The Grand & The Atrium available, the Big Band Project will compliment RVJ&B's programme of monthly jazz gigs and Annual Jazz Festival.

We want to bring together musicians who:

  •  want to broaden their musical skills & experience in a big band format, or
  •  want to share their talent with others.

Skill Sharing will be a focus for a new Big Band. Younger & older musicians will learn from each other, and build confidence & technique before getting a real buzz out performing for live audiences.

Paul RigbyPaul Rigby is our Big Band Project leader. Paul has a massive reputation for developing jazz talent in the North West. He’s happy to welcome more musicians, irrespective of age, musical background, or choice of instrument. Rhythm, reeds or brass, a Ribble Valley Big Band will give a life changing experience to musicians! One key point though... more trumpeters & trombonists are needed to make the rhythm and reed sections happy.

Big Band rehearsal sessions are at Low Moor Club (BB7 2LS) every Monday evening, 7:30pm to 9:30pm.
