The Billy Marrows Big Band features an eclectic mix of some of London’s most exciting improvisers (see line up below), formed to play Billy’s inventive and infectious compositions and arrangements.
They played their debut gig to a sold out audience at the Vortex Jazz Club on the last day of the London Jazz Festival 2023. The gig was described in London Jazz News:
"Guitarist Billy Marrows hosted some of London’s best talent at the Vortex on the final Sunday. It was an uplifting and heartwarming tribute to his late mother: clear interplay and interlocking lines with a great generosity of spirit to his members who in turn responded with some great soloing, from the likes of Alex Ridout, Alcyona Mick, Mike Chillingworth to name but three."
