I’m very excited to announce on Sunday I will be leading a Big Band for the first time! It’s a lovely event the band is playing for, run by dance enthusiast Martyn Nelson. We’re playing an afternoon slot of dance music for Lindehop and Balboe dancing! It’s a great Big Band made up of players from the Midlands, and the repertoire will be a mixture of classic swing tunes, from Glen Miller to Count Basie, and not forgetting Thad Jones! There will also be a few smaller jazz combo tunes, and of course, the occassional Christmas tune too!
Should be really fun!
