A DOU­BLE bass player from Stock­port is re­turn­ing to his home town with a new show, ‘Swing Time’.

Ken Marley has been on a na­tion­wide tour with the show, which fea­tures the band Five Star Swing, per­form­ing clas­sics by Frank Si­na­tra, Ella Fitzger­ald, Glenn Miller and many more.

The tour, which started at Lon­don’s Le­ices­ter Square The­atre and will be on at Stock­port Plaza on Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 27, is rais­ing money for the Poppy Ap­peal.

The show is led by Chris Smith Jnr, com­poser and ar­ranger for the BBC Ra­dio Big Band and for­mer com­poser for the Herb Miller Big Band – led by Glenn Miller’s brother.

Ken said: “Fans have en­joyed this ‘feel-good’ style of mu­sic for gen­er­a­tions. Fol­low­ing our ex­ten­sive UK tour I’m ex­cited to be bring­ing the sound of our big brass band, saxes, rhythm and vo­cal­ists back home.”

The Stock­port Ex­press has teamed up with Five Star Swing to give away three pairs of tick­ets to the Plaza show.

To be in with a chance of win­ning sim­ply an­swer the fol­low­ing ques­tion: “What was the name of the band­leader brother of Glenn Miller?”
