Swings Into Summer on Saturday 6th July 2019
After a series of back to back sell-out concerts in Nottinghamshire, the Tony Farrell Big Band invites you to join them for their 'Swings into Summer' concert. The Band brings you the best of big band music from the vintage era all the way through to modern day hits; perfect to sit back, relax and enjoy a summer evening.
Throughout the evening the Band will feature classic, laid back swing from the likes of Count Basie; energetic and flamboyant numbers from the library of Glenn Miller; vivid grooves from more modern masters; and rich vocal numbers as performed by Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, Tony Bennett, Harry Connick Jr and many more stars of the big band world from the past and present.
Starting at 7:30pm on Saturday 6th July, you can listen and watch the band perform “Swings Into Summer” at Allestree Woodlands Theatre, Blenheim Drive, Allestree, Derby, DE22 2LW. Book your tickets early to avoid disappointment. Tickets in advance are priced at £12 and under 16s at £6 (excluding booking fee) and are available via ticketsource.co.uk/tonyfarrellbigband. Tickets on the door will be £15 and under 16s £8.
This energetic 18 piece big band has been performing for more than 25 years and has proven to be a winner with audiences up and down the country. “...this was a real crowd-pleaser … people were clearly thrilled by the musical delights on offer.” -- South Wales Evening Post. Whether you are a fan of the classics, mad on the modern, or entirely new to big band music, this show is sure to entertain and will provide you with unforgettable musical moments.
