Bristol based Jonny Bruce is one of the most in demand trumpet players on the scene today. Working as both a soloist and a lead player in a variety of musical contexts, Jonny has received much critical acclaim for his fiery trumpet work.
From Bobby Shew, Fred Wesley and Pee Wee Ellis to Kelis and Illa J, his trumpet has seen him perform at venues and festivals across the world with many greats from a variety of genres. Many will have seen him as a featured soloist with Moscow Drug Club, who launched their album at St George’s in 2019 as part of the Bristol International Jazz and Blues Festival. He is also the co-bandleader, along with Denny Ilett, of the Bruce/Ilett Big Band, and the Musical Director of the Bristol Community Big Band.
This afternoon Jonny explores the jazz standards with a very talented Bristol rhythm section, featuring George Cooper on Piano and Chris Jones on Bass
