After acquiring a somewhat unfashionable obsession with jazz and big band music at an early age - and in Wigan! - Georgina Jackson began her musical career as a professional trumpet player. She worked all over the country with many famous faces and big bands in concert halls and television and radio studios. Thus Georgina learnt her trade playing lead trumpet.
Harbouring a desire to wear a posh frock rather than the same costume as 'the lads', Georgina decided to make a dash for the front mike! Forming her own big band to play at a local ballroom was the first step in fulfilling her frock and singing ambitions!
CJC visitors will remember her as part of 100 Years of Jazz a few seasons ago. Georgina is now established as a fine vocalist and we look forward to hearing her dual talents tonight.
Line-up: Georgina Jackson - trumpet and vocals, Chris Ingram - piano, Paul Morgan - bass, George Double - drums.
All meetings start at 7.45pm - doors open at 6.30pm
