A Story Steeped in Sound
Throughout the course of their union, the members of J4 have won over the hearts of music lovers from all walks of life. Performing at a variety of venues and making countless public appearances all the while recording new song versions, this talented big band has earned the admiration and affection of critics and fans alike.
Junction 4 was formed in 2011 by ex-military muso and feral trumpeter, David Cunningham, to capture the very best of jazz.
Simply put, a great bunch of 18 extremely talented (pro and semi-pro) musicians who enjoy playing big band, swing and jazz music right from the 1930’s to today. "The rep" includes not only some of the greats, firm party favourites and tunes that perhaps don’t get heard too often as they should in big band music. Expect to hear Buddy Rich, Basie, Ellington and Miller, Buble, Pharrell Williams and much, much more.
The sound of the band in full swing is something to behold – we hope you will be able to come to one of the gigs to listen for yourself!
There is a long waiting list of players who are keen to join the band, however, should a vacancy occur and you're of the high standard the band requires you may be added to the dep list or considered for a permanent seat.
The band usually rehearse on the 1st and 3rd Sundays each month at Albert Street Social club. Please come along - We'd love to see you!
