The days getting shorter, for the Big Band, means our “Winter Season” of concerts is upon us. It was great to see familiar faces in the audience as we struck the opening notes of Ray Nobel’s Cherokee. A great night and a good start to the season. See you all there next month.
We had a fantastic time last night at the Holiday Inn Barnsley with the Barnsley and Rockley Rotary clubs raising monies for the Mayor’s Charity of the year “Dementia Care”. It was a privilege to be apart of this event.
It was a great gig last night at Elsecar beer festival, great audience and atmosphere. The band really enjoyed this gig, well it was a beer festival after all…..

The Dearne Big Band in Filey today raising money for the RNLI.
The weather has been great and ice creams were enjoyed by all!
Thanks to everyone who made the journey to play & watch the big band.
It was great to see everyone enjoying themselves and dancing the night away at the Dearne Big Band Spring Ball. We had lots of fun with the fundraising games in the interval, and as always it was great to see some of the alumni members of the Band. Roll on 2017!
A fantastic night of swing, the band was invited to play for a very important birthday celebration, many happy returns for the evening.
With this being our last concert of the 2015/16 season at Holiday Inn Barnsley we wanted to try something a little different, so we created a feast of big band sounds which contrasted older big band music with the more modern big band music.
We were pleased to welcome the South Yorkshire Musical & Comedy Society in this joint concert of big band classics. SYCMS have been entertaining the public for over 60 years. Performances on the night included music from the classic big band era as well as music from musicals and the rat pack.
