When it comes to authentic swing music the orchestra has no equal, performing year-round with a line up of eleven excellent jazz musicians who have perfected their craft and studied jazz at the top conservatories. Not only showcasing their talent, this show adds wit and humour.
Duncan Galloway, band-leader and vocalist, and responsible for the musical direction, has been part of the orchestra for over ten years. He originally trained in London as an actor at the Webber Douglas Academy and his first experience of Dance band music was in the 1980’s hearing Dennis Potter’s wonderful TV show Pennies from Heaven.
The repertoire currently comprises over 200 titles of jazz, early swing and dance music from the era and some of the new arrangements are from two of the band members, the trombonist Adrian Fry, and the pianist, Simon Townley.
