Jim Prior and the JP Big BandBack for his second fundraising event for Cystic Fibrosis, Jim Prior and The JP Big Band are back in Steyning for a night of music making on Saturday the 27th of October.
Following the success of their last fundraising night The JP Big Band plus special guests are putting on a evening of music from Gloria Estefan, Tori Kelly, Sammy Nestico and Bobby Darin to name but a few. Joining the band on stage this year are special guests Bryony Prior on vocals, Paul Newton on trumpet, Mark Bassey on trombone, Vocal fusion Acapella and Saffron on vocals.
Along with a full 25 piece big band including percussion and french horns and the legendary Steyning Steinway Grand Piano so it’ll certainly make for a big noise! Jim is joined again with members of the Rotary Club of Steyning and Henfield, Steyning Music Society and the Steyning Jazz Club to help organise and promote the event as well as helping out on the night its self.
There will be a bar sponsored by the Dark Star Brewery and a raffle sponsored by local residents and business.
Most importantly though is that all the profits from the night are going to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. Jim’s sister Bryony was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when she was younger so there is a very personal connection there, and what better way to combine their passion for music and raise some money for Cystic Fibrosis.
The concert will be held at the Steyning Centre, BN44 3XZ on Saturday the 27th of October at 7:30pm (door’s open at 7pm)
Tickets are £15 and are available from the Steyning Bookshop on 01903 812062 or at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/thejpbigband
