The Drum is launching an exciting new ‘Jazz Fusion’ project which will introduce Young People between theages of 8 - 24 to the various aspects of the culture, era and sound of jazz. Groups will be split according to age and ability. The overall aim is to create a Jazz Fusion band with the Young People over a period of workshops, tuition, gig reviews/research and performances. We aim to launch the project on the 15 June. As we go back in time to explore the ‘cotton club’ era all are welcome to don their trilby’s and feather boas, while the drum will be transformed into ‘The Pit Club’ featuring the house band, light refreshments and an educational ‘cinematic experience’. There will be mini taster sessions based on the instrumental elements within the ‘Bigband’ set up and an opportunity to speak to real working musicians in this field.
