The Not Quite Big Band - NQBB
What better way could we begin the crescendo towards the end of Goosfest 23 than have a night of unbelievable talent and energy from ‘The Not Quite Big Band’, more fondly known as NQBB. This 15-piece Manchester-based big band composed of some of the UK’s most exciting, talented musicians, many of whom are ex-alumni of RNCM. NQBB’s diversity and professionalism is seldom found as good as this. This will be a fabulous event, a true spectacle and without doubt a sell-out night to remember.
NQBB has revitalised a movement of music that continues to prove its timelessness, as the night unfolds with support of Bublé, the Blues Brothers, Elvis and more. Those fortunate to enjoy the entertainment become fully immersed in an unforgettable evening of dancing and singing.
Having played in festivals, on Cruise ships, for TV & film and alongside some of the industry’s biggest names such as Paul Heaton, the collective experience across the whole band has made NQBB one of the most sought after big bands in the UK. Within the last two years NQBB has been propelled into cult-stardom in Manchester’s high-end hospitality and events scene.
NQBB proudly resides at Manchester’s fabled Hotel Gotham in their brand new speakeasy, the Gilt Club where they play to sell out shows.
