    A couple of items - Suburban Swing Orchestra on Monday 6th April at the Royton Band Club and Shades of Kenton are doing a live recording session on Monday 30th March at the cheadle hulme british legion- two excellent big bands in the north west at the moment. Watch Utube for this one.

    Hi Tony, I did a Monday session with the Shades band recently and was very impressed some cracking players.

    Well worth a listen.

    Hi Rich,

    Yes, there are some outstanding players - they are really struggling to get a consistent bone section together at the moment due to gig commitments for players of the calibre needed to cope with a pad like this! I'm doing the recording session, not sure who else is on it apart from lee hallam who is booking the section-suppose we'll see who is there on the night. Also just done a gig with Mark Gilbanks band with lee, martin gagg and duncan winfield which was also an enjoyable blow with great jazzers and section players. Are you doing much big band stuff at the moment?
