In a largely male dominated musical genre, to see a full jazz big band on stage with a woman in each section is one thing. To find a full big band of women, with full sections of trombone, trumpet, sax and rhythm, along with powerhouse vocalist Kate Taylor, is stunning.

Musical Director Lana Law describes their show “The Ages” as “a historical journey of music inspired by arrangers, composers and performers from the 1930s through to the latest hits of today”. The inspiration for this concert comes from women who have left a legacy through song, including Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, Debbie Harry, and Beyonce.

“The Ages is unequivocally a chilled-out, enthusiastic masterclass in Big Band virtuosity.” Backstage Christchurch
