Capital City Jazz Orchestra with Mike Lovatt

  • St Davids Hall The Hayes Cardiff, Wales, CF10 1GA United Kingdom (map)

Level 3 Lounge

In 2007, saxophonist Ceri Rees had a conversation with Alistair McMurchie of Four Bars at Dempseys’ about putting together a big band to play once a month at the jazz club. And so, the 16-piece Capital City Jazz Orchestra was born and soon attracted a loyal and regular following.

Mike Lovatt studied at Trinity College of music where he was awarded the Jon Kelly Jazz Scholarship. He has performed and recorded a wide range of musical styles with many artists including Quincy Jones, Robbie Williams, Eric Clapton, The Orchestra of the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Michael Buble, Oasis, Michel Le Grand, Tony Bennett, Toots Thielmans, Marty Paich, Johnny Mathis, The Michael Nyman Band, Michael Ball, Shirley Bassey, Michael Crawford, Danny Elfman, Joby Talbot, The BBC Symphony and Concert Orchestras, London Brass, and The Glenn Miller Orchestra.
