LEVEL 1 - THE CURTOM ORCHESTRA (Live) Band on stage at midnight
THE CURTOM ORCHESTRA - Made up of some of the UKs finest Soul, Jazz and Funk musicians, The Custom Orchestra formed back in June 2011 in order to be both the warm up and backing band for the IMPRESSIONS London Barbican and Manchester Bridgewater Hall Shows. After tearing down the house at both concerts and glowing reception by the critics, audience and (more importantly) original Impressions band members (with whom they'd just performed) The Custom Orchestra was born and since their inception truly haven’t looked back.
Over the last 8 years the hugely in demand band firmly establishing themselves as The UKs premier exponents / channellers of The sound and spirit of Curtis Mayfield & The Impressions.
