This just in from press office at Jazz FM on behalf of the Yamaha/Jazz FM Replay Project:
The deadline for lapsed and amateur saxophonists, trombonists and trumpeters to apply to be part of the Replay Project big band playing Love Supreme Festival has been extended to 21 April 2016. Those chosen to be part of the band will be professionally coached by Pete Long, Director of the Ronnie Scott’s Big Band, in a series of rehearsals taking place in Central London in May and June.
The brilliance of the 2015 Replay Project big band has inspired some high profile supporters to become patrons including musicians Jamie Cullum, Jools Holland and Julian Joseph along with comedian, TV presenter and a lapsed musician himself, Alexander Armstrong. Jamie Cullum
commented, “If making music is your hobby, the Replay Project allows you to discover and rediscover the joys of being in a band. So, lapsed musicians pick up your instruments, get playing”.
To be part of this amazing experience, just dust off your sax, trombone or trumpet, download the audition piece and submit a short audition and application. Judges from Yamaha, Jazz FM and Love Supreme will judge all entries and select this year’s Replay Project players.
