The Big Chris Barber Band
Already a living legend, in 2017 Chris Barber seems as restless and ageless than ever. At 86, he continues to do extensive tours and he has the same power and coolness as he did when he started his career almost seven decades ago.
This is why the sixth guest performance of the trombone-playing and singing gentleman from the British Isles is anything other than a routine booking. With his high-profile big Chris Barber band, the passionate musician wants to again show why he is now considered one of the most successful jazz musicians of all time in the Audi Forum Ingolstadt. 260 recordings at 16,000 concerts, more than 50 former band members, and his influence outside of the Dixieland genre prove this. English rock greats such as Eric Burdon and Eric Clapton are still emphasising Barber's influence on the country's music scene. Paul McCartney even made him indirectly responsible for the creation of the Beatles. In Germany, fans adore him for his popular but never superficial mix of swing, New Orleans jazz, gospel and blues. Chris Barber will once again captivate every visitor with different players, exciting arrangements, and his greatest hits "When The Saints Go Marching In" and "Ice Cream". And the audience will once again be hanging on to every note - guaranteed!
