AJ’s Big Band – POSTPONED

Event Details

£15.50Due to COVID-19 this event is postponed and as yet we do not have a new date.  All tickets will be valid for the new date.

A.J.’s highly acclaimed seventeen piece band, now into its thirty fourth year, has always been closely associated with the unforgettable arrangements and songs of the Thirties and Forties – music that helped to prop up morale during the war-torn years. Who can forget Glenn Miller’s Moonlight Serenade, In the Mood and Little Brown Jug, to mention just a few of his many hits?  Remembering the popular vocalists of that era, the famous Andrew  Sisters sang Bugle Boy and Chatanooga Choo Choo, whilst Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra were the pop star crooners of that time.  In Britain, the Forces favourite was the wonderful Vera Lynn, whose evocative songs, such as We’ll Meet Again and the White Cliffs of Dover, meant so much to so many – in and out of uniform. A.J.’s Big band is delighted to be returning to the Princess Theatre for this special concert. MD Ken Parr, together with some of the West Country’s top musicians and songstress, Paula Mitchell, will be performing a musical tribute to those who gave us the freedom we now enjoy.   Early booking is recommended.
