The Big Band Bash is a weekend music festival dedicated to Big Bands in all their forms. If you like 1940s swing, the sounds of Nelson Riddle and Billy May, the evocative songs recorded by Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald and the Big Bands of Count Basie and Duke Ellington, then the Big Band Bash is for you.
The next Big Band Bash will take place at The Maltings, Ely, Cambridgeshire, from Friday 14 June to Sunday 16 June 2024. The confirmed line up is:
The Umbrella Band
Upbeat Big Band
The Blue Skies Big Band
Harmony in Harlem
Linton Jazz Orchestra
4 Villages Orchestra
Each band will be highlighting a different aspect of the Big Band sound.
