The Tom Sharp Jazz Orchestra began life as a rehearsal big band in Leeds, but has cemented its place as one of West Yorkshire’s most celebrated large jazz ensembles.

The band started by performing at the legendary Seven Arts Christmas Concert, shortly after went on to win the prestigious Great North Big Band Competition (2016), and have moved from strength to strength ever since.

With Tom Sharp as musical director, the band plays music from all across the big band repertoire of the twentieth century, focusing on the big swingers of the 50s, as well as showcasing arrangements from members of the orchestra.

Even more exciting: for this performance, TSJO invites you to play BIG BAND BINGO with them! Pick a number between 1 and 200 (yes 200) when you arrive, and it will be entered into a draw which aligns that number with a song the band can play. That means YOU get the chance to influence a portion of the band’s setlist; and there’s some pretty fun tunes in that list of 200…
