Laurie Kalus to perform at the Royal Albert Hall!!!

Laurie Kalus will perform at the Royal Albert Hall on 13th November with his band Jazz In My Pants.
They were invited to perform as part of the Music for Youth Schools Prom event having been selected over many other young musicians to represent the north east at the national Music for Youth Festival Finals in Birmingham earlier this year.

Jazz In My Pants was formed about 2 years ago, involving 9 students from across the county playing at various venues including Birmingham Conservatoire, The Gala Theatre and Tubingen Festival Germany. They have also featured heavily in the last two years of Durham Brass Festival.

The set up of Jazz in My Pants has changed slightly over the two years however the current formation consists of two trumpets (of which Laurie is one), two saxophones, two trombones, a sousaphone and two percussionists. The formation is based on a New Orleans Big Band but are marketed as a Jazz Street Band.

We wish Laurie the best of luck for the concert in London – what an amazing achievement!
