The band will perform your favourite songs from the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Nancy Wilson, Sarah Vaughan, Peggy Lee and more. They will also be swinging their way through classic big band favourites from the libraries of Count Basie, Woody Herman, Ted Heath, to name just a few. As a treat for Buxton, Ian Shaw and Guy Barker will guest with the band.
