6pac Jazz Band
6pac Jazz band have worked extensively throughout the UK since they formed in June 2002. The players met whilst studying at the Royal Northern College of Music (Manchester UK) and the University of Manchester. In June 2004 6pac were awarded the RNCM Gold Medal, the highest accolade for performance that the college bestows, and the only time in its history that an ensemble received the award.
Later in the same year the band received the Peter Whittingham Award for an Innovative Jazz Project from the Musicians Benevolent Fund for their project, Last Minute Changes. This included a tour of northern universities and the recording of their debut CD featuring band new music by young people and the band themselves. The band continues to perform new music as well as putting their own distinctive mark on jazz standards. Their second album, Business as Usual, is a collection of their favorite arrangements to date
6pac perform all over the UK at festivals including Manchester International Jazz Festival, Isle of Wight Jazz Festival and Peterborough Jazz Festival. They also perform at chamber music societies including St Martin In-The-Field, Macclesfield and Saddleworth, along with various jazz venues. 6pac have also performed twice for BBC Songs of Praise and for the BBC Three documentary Bohemian Rhapsody.
