The 18-piece 'Big Band Swing' will be presenting its annual charity performance in Haddenham, supported by Haddenham Lodge, in the village hall on Friday 9th November starting at 7.30pm.
The evening will offer a wonderful selection of music from the golden era of the big band sound through to present day arrangers.
There will be a licensed bar but people should take their own nibbles.
Tickets (£10) must be booked in advance by email from Tickets@BigBandSwing.co.uk or telephone 07977 138044. The event will raise money for local charities.
The band was formed in June 1996 by Kevin Lane & Rob Carter as an offshoot of the then 'Aylesbury Town Band', and Lee Buckingham took over as its leader in 2006.
