The Swinging Bass Band has recently played at a Summer Concert in Brinton Park, Kidderminster. Here is a short clip. What a fantastic setting it was and what an appreciative audience!
The Swinging Bass Band has played in Brinton Park, Kidderminster as part of the Summer Bands in the Park Series for Wyre Forest District Council.
We played lots of Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Jazz and Swing Music. A really enjoyable afternoon!
This was the last in our summer run of 8 performances at some great venues – Upton House near Banbury, Bletchley Park near Milton Keynes, Lacock Abbey Wiltshire, and Packwood House near Solihull.
There have been two amazing Summer Parties at Lacock Abbey that The Swinging Bass Band has recently played at. One was for the National Trust Volunteers and the other for the village and parish. We played a mix of jazz & swing, with Sinatra & Nat King Cole hits.
The weather was perfect, the sun was out, not a drop of rain, and great to see so many people there!
The Swinging Bass Trio played at the National Trust’s Packwood House, near Solihull, recently. The evening was for the volunteers and the trio from Swinging Bass Band played quiet background music.
It was a little wet outside so the trio played Here’s That Rainy day, Singing In The Rain and Stormy Weather. They seemed very appropriate!
The Swinging Bass Band is playing at the National Trust’s Upton House & Gardens Summertime Jazz Night on Saturday 29th July 2017 from 7.00-9.00pm. Lots of music composed in the 1920′s and with the 5-piece band and you can join a short jazz taster dance class too.
