Jazz Punt Big Band
ABOUT THE BIG BAND
Jazz Punt Big Band was founded in 2005 and has since performed over 200 concerts in Slovenia and abroad. Amongst its many achievements, JPBB received outstanding international recognition at two international big band contests, in Hungary in 2013, and Czech Republic in 2015. Members of the big band won gold in both contests and scored the highest number of points among the contenders. In celebration of their 10th anniversary in 2015, JPBB launched a new and highly successful repertoire A Tribute to The Beatles, which has been performed in over 25 concerts, and culminated in the release of their first album. JPBB has also performed at the famous Nišville Jazz Festival in Serbia, and Big Band Festival Šiauliai in Lithuania, to mention a few. In the current year, which marks their 15th anniversary, the big band has prepared new concert materials, dedicated to the legendary band Queen, and entitled We Will Rock You.
Since its inception, Jazz Punt Big Band has been led by the creative leader and member of the band, Matija Mlakar (trombone), and in 2010, JPBB was joined by Tanja Srednik, a jazz vocalist. Throughout the 15 years, JPBB has collaborated with numerous guest performers, such as the renowned artists Mia Žnidarič, Uroš Perić, Ana Bezjak, Boštjan Gombač, Mike Sponza, Karin Zemljič, Blaž Vrbič and Jaša Šaban.
The name, Jazz Punt Big Band, reflects both the members’ love of jazz music, and their affiliation to their hometown of Tolmin, famous for the great peasant uprising (“punt”) in 1713.
The studio recording of A Tribute to the Beatles, the repertoire prepared in celebration of our 10th anniversary, is now available on CD or USB. To request a copy, simply click below or send us an email.
