Apollo Big Band

A night of Big Band classics.

Having celebrated its 21st birthday this year, this fantastic 18 piece jazz orchestra will entertain you with hits from the great big-band leaders like Ellington, Basie, Kenton and contemporary leaders like Gordon Goodwin and Jools Holland. This show will feature the up and coming star, Elan Mangham. Ellan will wow you with her individual interpretation of hits by Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Etta James, Adele and many more.

Basie and Miller to Jools Holland and Michael Bublé and Paloma Faith the Apollo Big Band swings with the sounds of the big band era while taking the best from more modern writers and singers. Based in Stockcross near Newbury the band can be seen regularly performing in public, keeping alive the big band sound with originals as well as more contemporary arrangements.

The Apollo Big Band provides fantastic sounds and singers for concerts, weddings and all public and private functions whether concerts, dances or a mixture of these.. We can organise a show, dance or concert to meet your needs.
