The Ashby Big Band

The Ashby Big Band was formed in March 2005 with a group of
local musicians initially as a rehearsal band. In a relatively short
time the band has become one of the most sought after 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 14, 12 or 10 piece Swing Band or an 8
Piece Little Big Band.
