Seven Steps Big Band

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Sunday 6 th August 2017

PizzaExpress Jazz Club (Soho)

After sell-out 2016 & 2015 performances, The Seven Steps Big Band returns to PizzaExpress Soho to present a new programme of classic big band music. The 20-piece ensemble was formed in 2012 from ex-members of the Durham, Oxford and Cambridge university big bands, and has joined together with graduates from music colleges to form one of the most exciting young bands performing on the London circuit. 

In addition to regular performances in the UK, the band enjoys an annual summer residency on board Cruise and Maritime Voyages ships. Their Dean Street performance will be a showcase of tunes featuring on the band’s upcoming tour of the Canary Isles, including original compositions, vocals, and a healthy amount of swing!
