Moonlight Serenade Orchestra UK appearing at this event

Founded by trumpeter Kevin Cunningham, the Moonlight Serenade Orchestra UK has wowed audiences in concert halls and theatres all over Great Britain. Known for its mix of Big Band Swing teamed with outstanding vocals, the Orchestra’s repertoire ranges from the classics of Glenn Miller through to Count Basie, Tommy Dorsey and Benny Goodman to the cool vibe of Sinatra with a touch of Gene Krupa thrown in. The musicians have credits ranging from 1920’s trad jazz, BBC Big Band, Jazz Funk and West End shows behind them. In concert, in addition to Big Band numbers, there are solos spots from a number of the top notch musicians and fabulous renditions from the star vocalists including possibly the oldest swinger in town; Mr Pat O’Hare, formerly of the BBC Radio’s Northern Dance Orchestra. The Moonlight Serenade Orchestra UK’s musicians happily state that they are the hardest swinging band in the UK but do not take their word for it, come and see for yourselves!
