The Swinging Bass 6-piece band has played at a fantastic country wedding at Long Meadow Farm, Keyham, Leicestershire. The barn was like a marquee inside and with amazing decorations.

We played 2 sets of swing and a set of pop covers. What a fantastic reaction we had from the guests! They loved our mix of music!!

It was an added all star line up too. Our trumpeter, Dave Tibbitts, played at Glastonbury recently and our sax player, Sam Adams, is a regular with the nationally touring Phil Collins tribute band, And Finally. Not forgetting Neil Hunter, Andy Richardson and Andy Kirkland too!

The Three Double Basses return to the Regent Club, Leicester

On Tuesday April 24th 2012 The Three Double Basses, Andy Kirkland, Geoff Cook and Paula Robinson, have been invited back to play another evening at the Regent Sports & Social Club, 102 Regent Road, Leicester, LE1 7DA.

They last played there in June 2011 to a full house. Each Double Bass played for 20 minutes accompanied by the house band, and a few guests, in each half of the evening. Finally, they played arrangements which Geoff had written for 3 double basses of Duke Ellington compositions.

The house band this time will also comprise Peter Houtman (keyboard), Richard Everitt (sax) and Andrew Sime (drums).

Andy leads The Swinging Bass Band which plays at weddings, family events and corporate functions.

Hope to see you there!
