BIO: London Gay Big Band - Stefan Doering

The London Gay Big Band was founded in the Summer of 2011 and is a full size jazz orchestra made up of talented LGBT musicians and vocalists, bringing a fresh and exciting vibe to the London music scene and audiences across the UK.

Since its formation, the 'LGBB' has gone from strength to strength, performing at a number of high profile events and venues throughout London and beyond, including Southbank Centre, World Pride 2012, BT London Live, Hackney Empire, The Lord Mayor's Show & Charing Cross Theatre to name but a few.

OutSavvy love music with a 'swing' and instantly fell for the music (and the musicians) the first time we heard 'the Band' live at the Two Brewers Clapham. Ahead of their next performance this Sunday at the City Zebrano Lounge we wanted to find out a little more about the musicians - and so we are asked three of the band members to tell them a bit about themselves.
