The Band specialises in music from the Big Band ‘Swing Era’, playing numbers made famous by the all-time greats – Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Buddy Rich, Count Basie, and, of course, our own Ted Heath.
Over the years the Band’s repertoire has expanded to include the mainstream music of Miles Davis, Thad Jones, Neil Hefti, and others. When required, the Band is equally at home providing more modern, upbeat music in the style of James Last, Jools Holland, along with Latin American and strict tempo numbers.
Our library also reflects the changes that occurred with Big Bands after the war and includes numbers by our own Ted Heath, Count Basle, Buddy Rich up to the present time with arrangements by Gordon Goodwin.
