Woodwind & Brass Instrument Service & Repair

The Name Is Band – Bond Tribute Band: Playing Tenor Trombone.  This band is a fantastic 10-piece James Bond Tribute band  playing the iconic Bond themes plus a party or swing set later in the evening.  This James Bond Tribute band spent 3 days on Lake Como performing for a themed wedding.

Bruce/Ilett Big Band: A 17 piece big band playing the BEST swing music from the 1930’s to 1950’s.  You can catch them at the Bristol International  Jazz & Blues Festival in March 2015.  Justin plays Bass Trombone in this big band.

Bristol Jazz & Blues Festival

Justin-PaveyJustin Pavey from BrassWindFix plays Bass Trombone for the Bruce Illett Swing Band who are again playing at the Bristol International Jazz & Blues Festival in 2015.

Come along and have THE best night at the Colston Hall this March: slip on your dance shoes, dress in 40’s/50’s style and be prepared to dance the night away!  You can see Justin from BrassWindFix in this short video on YouTube 

UPDATE:  Justin was totally blown away by the musicians and band playing at the Bristol Jazz & Blues Festival 2015 and was honoured to be such a part of it this year – huge thanks to Denny Ilett who organised such a spectacular event.

Louis Armstrong Story

Featuring Lillian Boutté, Clarke Peters, Evan Christopher and Don Vappie, Enrico Tomasso, Pee Wee Ellis plus special guests.

Renowned for his charismatic stage presence and gravelly voice as much as his trumpet playing, few people have influenced the evolution of popular music more than Louis Armstrong. Louis Armstrong played Bristol’s Colston Hall over 50 years ago, and in 2015 his music made a long-awaited return to the venue. The Louis Armstrong Museum gave exclusive access to some of Satchmo’s original big band compositions which haven’t been played since 1947.

Featuring a 17-piece band comprised of Bristol’s finest musicians with guest vocalists and soloists from New Orleans, and famed actor Clarke Peters reading from Armstrong’s personal letters and autobiography, it serves as the perfect reminder of why the great Satchmo is still seen as the single most important influence in jazz history.

Justin got to play on stage with Pee Wee Ellis – who toured extensively with James Brown for years – as part of the Louis Armstrong Story – the vocals from Lillian Boutte were hair raisingly superb and Clarke Peters had THE best reading voice in the world.

Bruce Ilett Big Band

Justin also played with the Bruce Ilett Big Band on bass trombone.  A huge crowd attended  the night which was full to brimming with lindy hopping, jiving and jitterbugging as the dance-floor was jammed packed.

Did you miss it this year?  Join us on 19th September at the Colston Hall so buy your tickets early!
