Hello.

Sick of the election already? Then get away from it completely by coming to the BIG BAND BASH!


Tickets are selling fast for the Big Band Bash concerts arranged for the weekend of 14 to 16 June at The Maltings, Ship lane, Ely. Here’s a reminder of the six concerts being staged:-


BIG BAND BASH 1: THE UMBRELLA BAND: FRIDAY 14 JUNE @ 7:30PM

Concentrating on the heyday of the Big Band era, The UMBRELLA BAND will take you on a journey of swing numbers from the 1930s, 40s and 50s.


BIG BAND BASH 2: UPBEAT BIG BAND: SATURDAY 15 JUNE @ 2:30PM

The UPBEAT BIG BAND will present a concert exploring big band music in all its forms from the late 1950's to the present day, with many original arrangements not heard elsewhere. A great concert to catch, especially if you're not a fan of Glen Miller!


BIG BAND BASH 3: BLUE SKIES BIG BAND: SATURDAY 15 JUNE @ 5:00PM

Brush off your dancing shoes and join the Tea Dance, with live music provided by the BLUE SKIES BIG BAND. Definitely not Strictly!, and without a grumpy judge in sight, everyone will get maximum points for dancing at this event.


BIG BAND BASH 4: HARMONY IN HARLEM: SATURDAY 15 JUNE @ 7:30PM

A fantastic concert of music made famous by DUKE ELLINGTON. Featuring Jane Mayo on vocals, HARMONY IN HARLEM is recognised nationally as one of the foremost purveyors of the Duke Ellington sound. A concert not to be missed!


BIG BAND BASH 5: THE LINTON JAZZ ORCHESTRA: SUNDAY 16 JUNE @ 2;30PM

Founded and directed by Karen Sanderson, The LINTON JAZZ ORCHESTRA is a community based big band that specialises in helping charities to raise money for their various causes. The band plays an exciting mix of big band standards and more modern arrangements. It is a huge band, with over 30 members and it produces an unforgettable, powerful sound.


BIG BAND BASH 6: THE FABULOUS 4 VILLAGES ORCHESTRA: SUNDAY 16 JUNE @ 5:00PM

Another huge band with over 30 members, the Fabulous 4 VILLAGES ORCHESTRA will explore Big Band at The Movies, featuring lots of JAMES BOND music and other great themes. A great concert with which to finish the BIG BAND BASH.
