Swing to the Big Band Sound

A ‘Spectacular Big Band Concert’ celebrating Glenn Miller and the Big Band era, will fill the Thwaites Empire Theatre in Blackburn on Sunday, 23rd October.

With a full line-up of saxophones, trumpets, trombones and a rhythm section, the Nick Ross Orchestra will faithfully recreate the wonderful sound of the Big Bands including those led by Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Tommy Dorsey and Syd Lawrence.

The show will feature such numbers as ‘Moonlight Serenade’, ‘In the Mood’, ‘A String of Pearls’, ‘Little Brown Jug’ and ‘American Patrol’. Memories of wartime and the Blitz will no doubt be brought flooding back to life.

The music will span difficult times including comradeship, doubt, fear, loss and, most significantly, the hope in love.
The Nick Ross Orchestra uses arrangements exactly as recorded in the Great Swing Era of the 40s and 50s, coupled with outstanding instrumental and vocal performances.

This special concert celebrating the inimitable Glenn Miller and other Big Band greats promises to be an ‘unmissable’ evening of music and song.

Tickets for the show cost £18.50 – £20 and are available here or call the booking office on 01254 685500.
