    I am organising a Fundraising Ball, which will take place at Pride Park Stadium in Derby on 26th November. All money raised from the event will go towards projects in Kenya aimed at helping some of the countries poorest children.

    I am looking for a band to play at the event. I am a singer and would like to perform a number of swing classics (rat pack style) during the evening.

    If you or your band are potentially interested in such an event, please contact me at For more information regarding wideningsmiles please visit

    Having been in a brass band performing with singers I can tell you that it is not an easy gig for either the band or the singer. The band is basically too loud if the singer is not well amplified.

    If the singer is not very experienced you can also run into some horrible tuning issues. With the singer moving off from one key into another. This is a killer for bandsmen as we are, in general, not adept at moving keys like this.
