The Big Band Bash

If you’re bowled over by Basie, excited by Ellington or mesmerised by Miller, then the Big Band Bash is for you.

The Big Band Bash is the first festival dedicated solely to the music and sound of the Big Band. Over the weekend each of the six big bands playing will take audiences through a particular aspect of big band music; the Swing era of the 1930s, dance bands of the 1940s, a special concert highlighting the music of Duke Ellington, a tea dance, current big band music and Big Band at the Movies.

The six bands performing will be: The Umbrella Band; The Upbeat Big Band; The Blue Skies Big Band; Harmony in Harlem; The Linton Jazz Orchestra and the 4 Villages Orchestra.
