About Us

Chris Barber OBE (86) is one of the last British Jazz legends around and an icon of traditional jazz in United Kingdom. For more than 68 years he has been active in the music scene with promoting, recording and releasing music and touring with his band. A milestone.

This year he and his band: The Big Chris Barber Band will celebrate 100 Years of Jazz, under the theme: Centenary of Jazz. In early 1917 the very first Jazz record was released by The Original Dixieland Jass Band: Livery Stable Blues. In the beginning 90s, Chris Barber and partnering label Timeless Records rereleased this very special record under the sub label Timeless Historical Series, where Chris coordinated the label as co-producer.

Now, in 2017 and a century later, the record from Original Dixieland Jass Band will exist 100 years. A moment to celebrate for Chris and for Jazz in general. The Big Chris Barber Band (10-piece!), inspired by great Ken Colyer Jazz Men, features everything from New Orleans to blues to late 20's Ellington, played with extraordinary panache and skill. On this special night you will hear songs from that age and Chris’ favourites like Bourbon Street Parade, Jubilee Stomp, Petite Fleur, Ice Cream, When the Saints Go Marching In and many more.
