(KZN All Stars Big Band)

The Centre for Jazz and Popular Music will presents the KZN All Stars Big Band on March 20, 2019.

The KZN All Stars Big Band is Durban's premier professional Big Band. The band is led by Duncan Wooldridge and is composed entirely of professional jazz and the best session musicians living and working in KwaZulu-Natal.

Boasting some of the most highly qualified and skilled artists in the country, the KZN All Stars performs the full complement of styles and genres from the 20s through to modern jazz and beyond. The KZN All Stars Big Band’s show is full of classic swing band and Rat Pack style numbers; from some classic Sinatra, Dean Martin and Bobby Darin to the more modern swing band classics of Michael BublĂ©, Robbie Williams and Harry Connick Jnr.

They also pride themselves on their modern homage to swing; performing some more popular, modern numbers from artists such as Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Pharell Williams, Earth Wind and Fire and Bruno Mars. Some of the prominent members include Sebastian Goldswain, Andreas Kappen, Melvin Peters, Jeff Robinson, Avikar  Maney and Salim Washington.
