“An unequivocally chilled-out and enthusiastic masterclass in Big Band virtuosity. The relaxed, understated style of their presentation is almost deceiving – these are some seriously talented musicians with a showcase of skill.” - Review of “The Ages” show.

In a largely male dominated musical genre, 18 Christchurch women are changing the face of the big band jazz scene. This completely female, All Girl Big Band create a "powerhouse of sound" which will blow you away!

Hear the All Girl Big Band showcase some of their favourite tunes with vocalist Christchurch based/Tauranga raised, Naomi Ferguson. From swing to funk to pop and soul you will hear many tunes you know and love along with a few new ones.
