The FB Pocket Orchestra takes its listeners back to the hot jazz, blues, ragtime & popular dances of the 1920/30s & earlier. The members originally began playing together in various FB Music & Media projects and officially began playing as The FB Pocket Orchestra in 2012.
We are also bringing to the Village Hall an exclusive gin bar for the evening, with 15 speciality gins to tantalise your tastebuds and fully bring to life the era and atmosphere. Our usual bar will of course be available for anyone who is not a gin lover.
Please email email@example.com to book, payment in advance is required. Please note, the bars are cash only.
Working backwards from the 1930s, the FB Pocket Orchestra explores repertoire that formed the embryo of what is now known as popular music. The members originally began playing together simply as an exercise in exploring heritage repertoire – taking on a few informal performances and recording dates as schedules allowed. The FB Pocket Orchestra became an ‘official’ project in the spring of 2012 and released its first album in October. The aims of the orchestra are to present a contemporary slant on popular acoustic music from the late 19th and early 20th Centuries.
