Cambridge Jazz Festival: The Alley Cats
Saturday 17th November
1:30 pm – 4:00 pm
Come and join The Alley Cats for a nostalgic ride through the Disney songbook.
A musical treat for all the family. The Alley Cats are a seven piece jazz band playing fresh and original arrangements of tunes from Disney and other popular children’s shows. Songs from The Jungle Book, Mary Poppins, Willie Wonka, Frozen, Dumbo, Aladdin, Cinderella, Monsters Inc, to name just a few. Face painting, quizzes, and more to help make this a fun afternoon for all.
The Alley Cats were formed in 2016 to perform at the Children’s Hospice in Milton. The children loved the Disney tunes so the project expanded further into a seven piece modern jazz band playing original arrangements of Disney and other classic children’s films.
The band is led by Vicki Kenny who is a music therapist, as well as a jazz musician. She has worked for many years with children teaching jazz and improvisation. Her passion is music and performing jazz to a younger audience. It’s fun for the adults too, as many of the songs are nostalgic of our own childhood. Our aim is to makes the gigs accessible to all ages and provide a fun and uplifting experience for everyone.
