MB Big Band
The “MB Big Band” is a jazz orchestra based in Den Haag, Netherlands. It was born from an idea of Lorenzo Mastrogregori and Jose Cervera Minguez, both students at city’s Royal Conservatory of Music. Born as a study project it soon went on stage at Cafè September in June 2017. Later on the orchestra was featured at the Bad Ass Jazz Festival in Den Haag and performed at Jazz at Willemeel in Arnhem. In 2018 it performed regularly at Regentenkamer in Den Haag. In 2019 they played In Het Koorenhuis, one of the most fancy stages in town, bringing a repertoire of original songs and arrangements, pushing boundaries of experimentation.
For this concert the band will be joined by the great drummer Eric Ineke. Eric is one of the best known jazz drummers, having played with artists like Dexter Gordon, Johnny Griffin, Rein de Graaf Trio and the Dutch Jazz orchestra. They will perform a tribute to Thad Jones/Mel Lewis big band. The guest soloists are made possible by Podium De Nieuwe Kamer.
