Born and bred in Bristol, Jack Calloway is a clarinettist, piano player, singer, dancer and actor. Since 2013 Jack Calloway has been climbing the ranks of the local, national and international music scenes.
Bringing his, now household name, ensembles to the spotlights of Dance Halls, Festivals, Cabaret/Burlesque Clubs and Theatres across the nation and overseas, Jack celebrates his decennial year in show business, at the Bristol Jazz Festival with his all new, A-List Quintet.
Formed on the back of his internationally successful “Midnight Creepers” & “Parlophonians” ensembles, who primarily play music from the 1920’s and 1930’s, this ensemble leans more towards a 50’s revival sound, commonly referred to as “pre-bop” by its members. This specialised outfit and setlist looks at the “what if’s” for an “If Goodman met Getz” approach. This all star line-up is a sure-fire way to kick off the Bristol Jazz Festival in full swing.
Together with his band, prepare to be uplifted with incredibly joyful music.
