Pessac Jazz Band at the Salle Galet
It was great to be able to play on Saturday with the big band in a hall I'd not been in before, especially since I've missed WEEKS of reheardsals !The hall is probably Pessac's best concert hall, called the Salle Galet because it's built of what looks like sprayed concrete on a large boulder shaped framework. It makes a hall that's quite indescribably ugly from the outside but that functions very well acoustically. We played a nice first set, followed by a group of professionals (our singer and director amongst them) called "Latin Spirit".
