Buddy Rich Big Band f. Cathy Rich & Gregg Potter with guest Benny Greb

Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, W1D 4HT , [Venue Details]

One of legendary drummer Buddy Rich’s last requests of his daughter, Cathy, was to keep his band working, his music alive, and to do something for young people. No easy task, but eventually the idea of an annual memorial concert seemed like the best way to do it.

Cathy Rich produced the first Buddy Rich Memorial Concert in 1988 at Carnegie Hall in New York and thus began the story of these incredible events which led to the band once again touring throughout the world in Buddy’s name, and continues to this day!

Following the success of the 25th Anniversary Memorial Concert at the London Palladium in 2012 and sell-out weeks at Ronnie Scott’s in 2017 and 2019, Ronnie Scott’s welcomes back the Buddy Rich Big Band featuring Cathy Rich, who will sing and host the evening, Emmy Award-winning Buddy Rich Big Band drummer Gregg Potter, and special guest much-acclaimed German drummer Benny Greb, winner of the “Echo Jazz Award” (the German equivalent of a Grammy in jazz) and featured drummer with the world-famous NDR Big Band.

The Buddy Rich Big Band comprises musicians from both the US and the UK, several of whom toured with Buddy himself and played on his last ever UK shows in 1986. Join us in paying tribute to “the world’s greatest drummer”!
