About the event

Information from Just Jive:

We are delighted to welcome back to this fabulous venue the Big R Big Band. This band never disappoint and keep the floor busy all night long with cracking swing tunes. They really know how to make a night Swing!

Led by Bristol's best dressed drummer, the 16 piece Big R Big Band are firm favourites with the Bristol swing dance crowd. Frequent performers at the Slapstick and Harbourside festivals, as well as the regular Bristol swing events that happen in the city, Big R can also be found swinging across the rest of the West Country. Dashing, debonair, dandy and dapper, the classic swing tunes of the 30's and 40's are looking, and sounding, pretty damn good.

First formed in 2010, playing classic Big Band music, in particular the swing music of the 30's and 40's. Now well established across the country as one of the best swing dance big bands, you can hear the music of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, and many many more, played as it was back when it was first played.

Tickets £15 each via or Classes & Dances. Pay on the door if places left.
