The band will be complimented with their vocalists, Corrine Andrew and Molly Birch, adding a touch of style and sophistication to the proceedings!

Musical Director Phil Shotton will take the audience on an exciting journey of interesting and sometimes lesser head big band repertoire, showing just what is capable with the modern day big band.
