The Ashby Big Band

The Ashby Big Band was formed in March 2006 by a group of local
musicians initially as a rehearsal band, but has now reached a standard
to challenge the best Big Bands in the Country. The band is a full 16
piece swing band with Saxes, Trumpets, Trombones and Rhythm
section - the same formation as Glenn Miller, Ted Heath or a name
that the younger generation will know ... Jools Holland's  Rhythm and
Blues Orchestra.
Where budget or space is a constraint the band can reduce down to a
12 or 10 piece Swing Band or an 8 Piece "Little" Big Band.
