The Ashby Big Band

The Ashby Big Band was formed in March 2005 by 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 12
or 10 piece Swing Band or an 8 Piece "Little" Big Band.
