Big Band Swing, with the South London Jazz Orchestra – Sun 15 July
Fresh from recent performances at London’s 100 Club, a five-day tour of the German Rhineland and their annual stint supporting the runners at the London Marathon, the South London Jazz Orchestra (SLJO) brings you a night of jazz and swing classics from the golden era of Big Band.
As a regular feature on the London swing dancing circuit, the SLJO is probably the UK’s largest regularly performing big band and is conducted by the ever charismatic Bob Bridges.
For the Festival closing night, the SLJO will perform tunes including In the Mood, Sing Sing Sing and American Patrol, alongside vocal numbers made famous by the Andrews Sisters and Frank Sinatra.
Come down to dance away the Sunday blues with a contribution bar on the night.
