On Sunday, March 8 Colston Hall will be transported across the Atlantic for the New Orleans Takeover with three specially curated concerts paying tribute to the spiritual home of jazz and blues.

Join the crowds to dance, in a whirlwind of colourful outfits and fancy footwork, or find a table to listen to the rich tones of music by artists from around the world. 

With events like 'Ol' Blue Eyes is Back', a Frank Sinatra celebration that marks his 100th birthday, and 'The Big Swing', a 1945-style evening of jitterbugging, you're sure to have an exciting time.
