50 years of unrivalled contribution to Jazz.

The Rodger Fox Big Band is celebrating their 50th Anniversary in 2023 with five national tours featuring international artists.

This programme tickles every style, is massive in its scope and is perfectly suited to the heroic efforts of this band.

Here's what is (or has) happened in 2023:

  • The Big Drum Off: March 2023
  • The Saxophone Summit: April 2023
  • Four Hands, Two Pianos & One Big Band: Queens Birthday Weekend, May/June 2023
  • The World Blues Revue: August/September 2023
  • The Brother Man Tour, King Kapisi and the RFBB: Labour Weekend, October 2023.

This document summarises what we’ve achieved thus far and the exciting programme planned for 2023. 

Each tour will have an educational component – Jazz on the Road, Changing Lives through music – a series of one-day masterclasses for secondary school jazz bands delivered by the Rodger Fox Big Band and featuring international jazz musicians and educators
