Shooting Stars are a 6 piece band, but we can reduce it to 5 for places with limited budgets or space. They were originally formed by musicians from the Big Chris Barber Band, to fill in a few dates while away on tour. Today the band features an all-star line-up with front line from the Chris Barber Band and rhythm section from the Pasadena Roof Orchestra.
The band has gained a reputation for playing high-energy “no-prisoners taken” quality jazz, and features a wide selection of music using well-crafted arrangements as well as free-blowing jazz barnstormers. Our current program includes a homage to the 3Bs (Barber, Bilk and Ball) as well as traditional jazz, swing and jump-jive numbers from the great days of jazz, with familiar jazz standards and popular favourites.
The Shooting Stars have been well received at festivals and clubs throughout the country, and have built a large following amongst the vintage jazz community.
