THE Midland Youth Jazz Orchestra have become regular performers at the Solihull Festival and will feature prominently at this year’s event.
Directed by John Ruddick, from Hampton-in-Arden, MYJO have won numerous awards and are regarded in the music world as every bit as good as many senior, fully professional big bands.
Guest singer at next week’s MYJO concert, Tony Jacobs, will follow in the footsteps of such luminaries as Georgie Fame, Jamie Cullum and Madeline Bell. Tony is best known as a singer with the Syd Lawrence Orchestra. The MYJO/Tony Jacobs concert is at Solihull Arts Complex on Thursday September 24. For tickets telephone 0121 704 6962.
