Mountbatten School Big Band

This band from Mountbatten School in Romsey was formed in 1997 by its current Musical Director, Stu Marchant. The band uses the standard Big Band format, but its repertoire is wide-ranging, from classic tunes by Basie and Ellington, to contemporary works by cutting-edge composers such as Vijay Iyer. The Band has played at Montreux Jazz Festival and is in great demand in the UK.
