Wantage Big Band Book the Big Band
The Wantage Big Band is an 18-piece swing band. It performs the music of many legendary artists which include Count Basie, Glenn Miller and Duke Ellington to name a few. The band’s programme can be tailored to suit individual requirements ranging from weddings, outdoor festivals, corporate events and parties of all descriptions, where the band can play a selection of hits from the 20’s to the 80’s. As well as performing as an 18 piece, the band also play as a smaller combo.
The Wantage Big Band includes many music graduates from the London Music Colleges as well as colleges in Manchester, Birmingham and Wales.
Dear Mark I just wanted to write and thank you for all your help in organising the band and singers for our daughter, Jennifer’s wedding last Saturday. I know she was disappointed that you were not able to do it yourself but the Wantage Big Band and the singers were fantastic. Lots of people have said how much they enjoyed the day and the Band were a huge part of making it such a success. Please would you pass on our grateful thanks for them stepping in and providing us with a wonderful performance.
Wantage Silver Band has been making music in Wantage, Oxfordshire and beyond since 1972.
Our Wantage Band is in the prestigious Championship Section and in October 2016 will compete at the Royal Albert Hall at the Nationals, their second visit in 2 years. Our 'B' Band in March 2015 won promotion to First Section as of January 2016 having been promoted to Second Section in 2014. Academy Brass, formed in 2013, are in Fourth Section.
