About The Notebenders: 20th Anniversary Concert

From humble beginnings in Ladywood in 2004, legendary saxophonist Andy Hamilton created The Notebenders community big band. A training ground for some of the best jazz talent to come from the city of Birmingham (with alumni such as Xhosa Cole, Romarna Campbell and Reuben James), The Notebenders have been an ever-present part of the city’s musical ecology, both as part of the regular Sax in the City series and through many other performances across the city.

Returning to Town Hall, the home of their memorable 10th anniversary concert, the band are going to be joined by some of their renowned alumni, leaders past and present, and future stars in the current line-up, to play music that has inspired them over the last 20 years. They will also taking a poignant moment to remember those who have passed, including their founder, Andy Hamilton.

Guest artists include Gary Crosby, Soweto Kinch, Romarna Campbell, Marcus Joseph, and Just Friends featuring Ralf DeCambre, Dutch Lewis, Eddie Powell and Wayne Scott.
