Last week I had the tricky task of choosing my three favourite Big Band tracks for a segment of the lovely Clare Teal show on Radio 2. Hours and hours and lists later I finally arrived at a selection that to me demonstrates the joy and excitement of being in and hearing a live Big Band. You have to tune in to Radio from 9pm on Sunday July 20th to find out what they are!
It is festival season now, so that means trying not to pack inappropriate clothing for rainy/sunny indoor/outdoor gigs! We are very much looking forward to our double bill at the Buxton Festival, The 100 Years of Jazz Show has sold out but there are a handful of tickets left for the Peggy, Duke and Benny concert! It's a beautiful part of the world and we are looking forward to being able to see a little bit of it rather than the usual dash in and out!
We sold out at Ronnie Scott's and got a standing ovation (don't mind if I do!) so come and see us in this lovely theatre, we will have a smashing night!
Thanks for your support and hope to see you soon, come and say Hello!
