The Swinging Bass Band has played at a wedding in Arthingworth, Northamptonshire

We played at a great wedding in June at a private house in Arthingworth, Northamptonshire. It was a relaxed informal event, in a marquee, and at a super location.
We played our mix of Sinatra and the great swing tunes. They loved Rock and Roll set too – and of course New York, New York!
And the next gig for our trumpeter is at Glastonbury!!
Here are a few photos from the afternoon: -

The Swinging Bass Band at Embrace Arts, Leicester


“..smooth, accessible, yet a captivating night” was how the Leicester Mercury described the band when it played at Embrace Arts at the Richard Attenborough Centre, Lancaster Road, Leicester, LE1 7HA in October 2010.

We have been invited back for another concert of Michael Bublé, Sinatra, and the Best of Swinging Jazz. The 5-piece band will include Chris Proctor (sax), a graduate of Birmingham Conservatoire this time, the amazing Neil Hunter (keyboards), the wonderful Dave Nock (vocals/guitar), and one of the best drummers in the Midlands, Andy Richardson. The band will be led by double bass player, Andy Kirkland.

The band has played at about 300 weddings, parties and corporate events over the last few years.

Its £8, but £5 for students.

Hope to see you there!
