The UK’s finest dance band playing music from the roaring 1920s and elegant 1930s are celebrating 50 years in 2019.
Not just a show with music, but some delightful tomfoolery is in store with band leader Duncan Galloway and his musical comrades performing an impressive programme of music from the dance band era.
Included will be the songs of Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, plus some classic tunes from Louis Armstrong, and sumptuous arrangements from the likes of Duke Ellington and his orchestra, plus songs from the great British bands Ray Noble, and Ambrose.
The Pasadena Roof Orchestra was founded by John Arthy in 1969. As a young bandleader John had the good fortune to discover 1500 arrangements from the 1920s and 1930s lying dormant in an attic in Manchester. The Orchestra’s unique style, attention to musical detail, and relentless sense of fun soon became a hit not only in the UK, but far and beyond.
