King’s School student Nye Banfield, 17, and his Brook Street Big Band performed a selection of much-loved jazz, swing and pop favourites to a sell-out audience at The Olde Barn, Marston.

Featuring young musicians and vocalists drawn from the local area, the evening was a huge success.

Nye, who organised the concert, said: “Thank you to everyone who came along. Having so many people there really pushed the band to play so amazingly. I also can’t thank the band enough. I’m so glad everyone had fun.”

Nye is currently studying A Levels at The King’s School. He attends the junior academy at Birmingham onservatoire and is a member of Lincolnshire Youth Symphony Orchestra. He plays saxophone, clarinet and viola.

The concert raised £500 for Save The Rhino.
