Friday – Casino
Founded in 1971, La Locomotora Negra, an iconic jazz band in Catalonia, will transform the casino Aliança del Poblenou into a small New Orleans through their impeccable interpretation of classic jazz.
In the beginning, it was formed by a quintet of musicians, which has grown into a Big Band by incorporating new talented performers. Lead by the legendary trumpet player Ricard Gili, the original founding member, they now have 17 members, which include trumpet players, bassists, trombone players, saxophonists, drummers, guitarists and a pianist.
More than 45 years of musical experience have produced 17 records and live performances that transport people to the old tunes of Dixieland, swing and jazz.
Saturday – Fabra i Coats
A ten-musicians band with two main vocals (male and female), two choirs,
clarinet, trombone, trumpet, sax, guitar, banjolele, banjo and drums, who play the most danceable and fun Swing music.
SwingOut! offers a wide repertoire of Jazz standards, Blues and Neoswing.
The band formed in Terrassa on 2013 and since then they haven’t stopped performing, always with one goal: make you dance, sweat… and most of all, make you have a good time, no matter if you are a dancer or not.
