Band leader and vocalist Duncan Galloway promised “hot music from the 1920s and 1930s”.

And his hugely talented orchestra didn’t disappoint.

They came up with a slick, smooth and silky programme which featured a host of tunes from the two decades … and more with an

Eclectic selection of numbers from their incredible repertoire.

They performed songs by Irving Berlin, Ray Noble, Cole Porter and Duke Ellington to name but a few.

The incredibly talented and accomplished musicians of the 10-piece orchestra produced a two-hour programme of more than 20-plus songs and featured all members of the band in a pure champagne evening.

They included “Anything Goes”, “Roses of Picardy”, “Zing Went The Strings Of My Heart”, “When I’m Paddlin’ Madelin Home”, “Putting On The Ritz” “Lullaby Of Broadway”, “Top Hat”, “Tiger Rag”, their signature tune “Home in Pasadena” and may more.
