The UWE Bristol Centre for Music is proud to present the closing event of their 2023 Festival for Sound. The fantastic Ronnie Scott’s All Stars will join forces with the University of the West of England Big Band and Gospel Choir in a joint concert in our foyer.

The UWE Big Band is a 25 strong band of students, alumni, staff and community members. Under the direction of Keith Morgan and Nick Attwood they perform regularly in and around Bristol. In 2021 the band won three awards at the finals of the National Concert Band festival held at the prestigious Royal Northern College of Music.

The Ronnie Scott’s All Stars perform a vast repertoire of jazz music and is comprised of the club’s house musicians. This dynamic group is led by the club’s artistic director, James Pearson. The All Stars have been touring the U.K. extensively performing “The Soho Songbook”, “1959: The Year that Shaped Jazz”, and “The Ronnie Scott’s Story” over the last few years.
