Australian born, UK based saxophonist and composer Brandon Allen brings his new ‘Groove Project’ to Bristol, performing an original fusion of soul, jazz, soundscape and electronica.

Brandon Allen is one of the UK’s most in demand saxophonists, renowned for his work as part of the internationally touring outfit The Kyle Eastwood Band,. Allen has also performed alongside the likes of Eric Clapton, Paloma Faith and Omar. As well as the ‘Groove Project’, he also leads The Stanley Turrentine Project.
