A popular local band is performing a show at Much Wenlock Priory on Friday 18 May. ‘Putting It on at the Priory’ will feature “a few surprises”, according to band member David Foster – including a special song about the town.
Band on the Edge was formed in 2013 by a group of keen musicians playing saxophone, trumpet, harmonica, guitar, keyboard, bass and drums. Like most jazz groups, they started out with jazz standards, but were keen to explore many other styles, and their repertoire now includes early ragtime and hot jazz numbers from the 20s, ballads and show songs, 30s and 40s swing, Afro jazz, Latin and some jazz rock styles.
