JOIN us at The Plaza in the very heart of Stockport on Mersey Square on Wednesday,
September 27, for an evening with ‘The Big Band’, an evening of Vintage Swing,
celebrating classic songs from Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Glenn Miller and many
more, performed by the famous Five Star Swing multiinstrumentalists and singers.
As seen on BBC TV’s Children in Need and Dame Vera Lynn’s Charity Ball, the show is
led by band-leader Chris Smith Jr, composer and arranger for the BBC Radio Big Band
and a former composer for Herb Miller Big Band – Glenn Miller’s brother. Along with
Tony Bennett’s trombonist also featured is vocalist and saxophonist Simone, who was
taught to play alto saxophone in the 1980’s by the famous bandleader Ivy Benson, whom she subsequently performed with. Simone has recorded with Paul Weller, the Paul Merton TV Show and the Russell Harty show.
The band’s local Double Bass player, Ken Marley 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 band brass, saxes, rhythm and vocalists back home!”.
