LET THE SLIGHTLY BETTER TIMES ROLL
DERBY JAZZ HAS COMMISSIONED DENNIS ROLLINS MBE AND TEN JAZZ MUSICIANS FROM THE EAST MIDLANDS TO BE READY TO PLAY TEN FREE, LIVE, ACOUSTIC SHOWS FOR COMMUNITIES IN DERBY WITHIN DAYS OF THE COVID LOCKDOWN RESTRICTIONS BEING LIFTED.
Derby Jazz has produced LOOSEN UP as a gift for the people of Derby to enjoy as sson as the lifting of the "Lockdown" permits. It's our way of helping to raise the spirits of the people of Derby as we come out of the COVID nightmare.
The eleven members of LOOSEN UP are already working together online developing repertoire and and arrangements so that they can come together for live rehearsals as soon as restrictions allow.
We are working with communities and other arts organisations in the city to identify the exact dates of the ten FREE gigs which are likely to be in August and September. There are also likely to be some gigs in Leicester.
YOU CAN'T BUY TICKETS FOR FREE EVENTS, BUT YOU CAN SUPPORT LOOSEN UP BY BECOMING A DONOR, SPONSOR, PATRON OR ANGEL THROUGH OUR ONLINE BOX OFFICE.
