Free event, come any enjoy music in Millennium Square featuring some of the best jazz and blues bands from Leeds. Headlining is Tom Sharp Jazz Orchestra with the Honeybirds
The Tom Sharp Jazz Orchestra started by performing at the legendary Jazz Leeds Christmas Concert at Seven Arts, and shortly after went on to win the prestigious Great North Big Band Competition (2016). With Tom Sharp as musical director, the band plays music from all across the big band repertoire of the twentieth century, focussing on the big swingers of the 50s & 60s, as well as showcasing arrangements from members of the orchestra.
Established in 2012, Honeybirds met through a mutual love of intricate close harmony, swing music, 1940s style and fashion, and a fair amount of tea and cake!
Our original members, Tessa, Daisy and Jenny, invited Molly and Kate to join in recent years, in order to ensure the group can sing as much as possible at events throughout the country.
