Golden Night Of Swing - 50th Anniversary Tour: The Syd Lawrence Orchestra
In 1967 Syd Lawrence formed what was to become the UK's most successful and longest running Big Band, performing in theatres all over Europe and regularly featuring on many TV shows such as Les Dawson, Morecambe and Wise, Pebble Mill, Wheel Tappers and Shunters and a Royal Variety performance.
With Radio 2 broadcasts every week and numerous album recordings, The Orchestra also toured with Tony Bennett, Matt Monro, Frankie Vaughan, Mel Torme and played concerts with Shirley Bassey all adding to the orchestra's gravitas.
And this wonderful Orchestra hasn't slowed down! For the last 20 years the Orchestra has been lead by virtuoso trombonist Chris Dean and has continued to fill theatres around the country, making 14 albums under his baton and recording TV shows in England and Germany. Tours of Brazil and Holland, Belgium and Monaco have kept the band at the top of the big band world.
Join the legendary Syd Lawrence Orchestra and enjoy the timeless sound of the big band as it recreates the unforgettable hits of Glenn Miller and the other great bands of the swing era.
Regularly voted Best Band In The Land, the SLO has notched up over 30 years of touring with a huge repertoire of classic arrangements.
No less than Count Basie himself described the orchestra as 'so good it should be banned!'.
Chris Dean directs.
