Celebrating Mike Gibbs’ 80th birthday

Gibbs

Mike Gibbs is one of this country’s leading composers and arrangers, since arriving here at the end of the 1960s. It is a thrill to the Vortex that the London shows for his birthday should be at the Vortex. It’s going to be a stellar big band, worthy of the musician that Mike is.
