Westside Live interviews leading members of The Notebenders big band

In the latest episode of my Westside Live video series, I interview Trevor Emmanuel and Peter Bradway of The Notebenders big band. You can watch my interview with Trevor and Peter here:

The Notebenders were founded by the late Andy Hamilton, the legendary jazz musician who passed away in 2012, and they now form part of his legacy.

The big band, which has around 30 members at any one time, play regularly at the Symphony Hall on Westside, one of B:Music’s top venues. You can find out more about The Notebenders here.
