Ray’s ‘In The Mood’ as the world’s greatest Big Band transports you back to the heady days and music of the 1940s – with the fabulous harmonies of the Moonlight Serenaders and the sublime vocals of Catherine Sykes and Mark Porter. Also joining us, with the sounds of the Andrews Sisters, are the Polka Dot Dolls.
2019 marked the 75th anniversary of Glenn Miller’s arrival in UK with his Army Air Force band to support the troops in the Allied Invasion of Northwest Europe. He arrived in July 1944 and played around 80 concerts and broadcasts before his disappearance on a flight to Paris six months later. The legacy he left was his amazing swing music.
Featuring In the Mood, Moonlight Serenade, American Patrol, Little Brown Jug, Tuxedo Junction and the song that became pop history’s first gold disc, Chattanooga Choo Choo!
Audiences of all ages will be thrilled by the sound of this amazing Big Band.

An unmissable show for those who love big band music
A charming and endearing musical experience
World-class talents… kept the performers and the audience swinging, swaying, snapping, and clapping along to the beat
Judging by the reaction of the audience who gave the Orchestra a standing ovation they thoroughly enjoyed the evening… it’s good to hear those wartime melodies live on
Enjoyable journey through the good old musical positivity with top class performance, humour and engaging cartoony theatricals
