DCJO in Temple Bar in 2011-concert in July

After its successful concert in the Bank of Ireland Plaza in September 2010 as part of the Culture Night for Temple Bar Cultural Trust, grant aided by the Music Network Performance and Touring Award, the dynamic Dublin City Jazz Orchestra takes to the streets again.

Ray Martin with his trumpet, on the left  and Ciaran Wilde with his alto-saxophone on the right, musical co-leaders of the DCJO lead the sprint across Meeting House Square in an early training session for their concert  on Sunday 24 July in Temple Bar Square. That’s the stratospheric trumpeter Danny Healy in the sunglasses.

So, for this second time for Temple Bar Cultural Trust and as part of its Celebrations for the Summer the DCJO will be in Temple Bar Square on the afternoon of Sunday 24 July. Get along and be there for the big blast from the best big band in Dublin.

The DCJO  made its home in the Button Factory in the heart of Temple Bar on the Curved Street for the last year or so up to this April. Its members are happy to be back in town as part of the enjoyment that is Dublin City and in particular this quarter and the centre of it, Temple Bar Square.

In the photograph above, you can see the DCJO performing on Monday 4 April in the Button Factory, with tenor saxophonist Brendan Doyle taking a solo.
