Formed in 1989 by drummer and Musical Director Paul J. Rigby, the NJO has developed its own unique sound by combining the best in big band standards with the latest in contemporary jazz, and by using the cream of talented young players from the North West.

Playing music by the likes of Maynard Ferguson, Count Basie, Stan Kenton, and Buddy Rich, the NJO have appeared with guest stars including Clare Teal, Claire Sweeney, Kenny Baker, Mark Nightingale and Elaine Delmar.

‘Brilliant and very much appreciated by the audiences here…[they] especially appreciate how talented the orchestra is’ (Lynne Conlan, Grimsby Jazz Festival)
