Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - 5 OFTHE BEST -

FOR nearly half a cen­tury, the Pasadena Roof Orches­tra has been faith­fully re-creat­ing the glo­ries of pop­u­lar music from the 1920’s and 1930’s.

The fun-packed show fea­tures time­less clas­sics from the great Amer­i­can song book – those won­der­ful songs that mirac­u­lously lifted peo­ple’s spir­its dur­ing the de­pres­sion era, and which made house­hold names of singers such as Bing Crosby, Al Bowlly, and Fred As­taire.

The mu­si­cians mas­ter the ar­range­ments and sound of the fa­bled Amer­i­can or­ches­tras such as Duke Elling­ton and Fletcher Hen­der­son.
