The Simon Bates Big Band is an 18 piece power station of musical magic. The all-star line-up assembled by top saxophonist and musical director to the stars Simon Bates includes Shirley Bassey’s lead trumpet player, members of funk band Incognito, a finalist of BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year, Van Morrison’s drummer, The Syd Lawrence Band’s front man and even a member of the Wombles!’

Demonstration Lindy Hop/Swing dancers will be there to show the way and provide ticket holders with an opportunity to practice before the event. As one can imagine space will be limited for this crackerjack evening and the dance area will be no less than 25 square meters (which is not as much as it might sound).
