ABOUT US

The band has always known success. Since winning a talent competition in the early days, it has gone from strength to strength, appearing at every major venue in the West Midlands playing for concert and dance engagements including several sell out appearances at Ronnie Scott's. It was amongst the prize winners at the annual Musicians' Union Big Band Contest an unprecedented nine times, winning outright on two occasions. It has six bestselling albums currently in release including its latest CD, '60 NOT OUT”. The band can be heard regularly on various radio stations including BBC Radio 3, The Bridge Radio 102.5FM and BBC Radio Hereford & Worcester.

Vocals are in the very capable hands of Lynn Dawes who hails from the USA. Lynn has appeared on four of the band’s albums and has proved a big hit with audiences throughout the UK.

However, the UK is not big enough to support a band just playing for concerts, and the band turns its hand to many things to keep working. They are one of the few bands to still carry a ballroom dancing library and also perform for forties nights with a full library to match alongside its demanding concert programme which features the best big band music of the last 60 years. The band also performs in smaller lineups for functions and is in big demand for weddings, parties etc.
