They wiggled, they jiggled, they wore low cut gowns and short shorts, they kow-towed to the club owners and smiled at the customers… and they did it all, just to play the music they loved.
The Girls In The Band tells the poignant, untold stories of female jazz and big band instrumentalists and their fascinating, groundbreaking journeys from the late ’20s to the present day. These incredibly talented women endured sexism, racism and diminished opportunities for decades, yet continue today to persevere, inspire and elevate their talents in a field that seldom welcomed them.
The Institute is pleased to co-host the UK Premiere of this film with Tricycle Theatre.
Following this we have the first of our new style of JAM NIGHT, with Institute guest alumni host band The Manic Shine.
From 8:00pm, The Prince of Wales, Willesden Lane
