The music that filled the dance halls during the Big Band era is brought to life again by The Moonlight Serenade Orchestra UK. The hardest swinging big band in the UK recreates the million sellers of the 40s and 50s.

‘Moonlight Serenade’, ‘Little Brown Jug’, ‘Pennsylvania 6-5000’ and ‘String of Pearls’ are just a few of the numbers that shot band leader Glenn Miller to world stardom. Pieces from other band leaders including Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington and Count Basie not to mention songs made famous by Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin are featured in this two-hour show which will take you down Memory Lane and start your feet tapping. A Big Band show that’s bound to get you ‘In The Mood’!
