On the 6th July, we’ll be performing at one of London’s loveliest summer venues, The speigletent at London Wonderground.
Hosted by Simon Selmon’s Swing Dance society, the night will include beginners & intermediate dance classes, top swing DJs, vintage dance cabaret, fun competitions and of course King Groovy and the Hornstars Big Band. We’ll be celebrating the music of the 1940s, from Jazz, Cool Swing, Hot Jive and Scorchin’ Rock ‘n’ Roll!
Back in 2005 a small group of friends got together and decided to try and build our very own big band. We were young and crazy, not realising the amount of work it might take. Starting out in a back room in the Half Moon in Herne Hill, we began our journey, finding new players who would join our ranks.
Over the years we’ve had numerous musicians join our happy band of swinging warriors, and now in our tenth year we hope to celebrate later this year.
So this is a call out to all those old members who might be interested in joining our celebrations, keep your eyes peeled for a date to put in the diary. And bring your instruments. Get in touch with Tony to find out more.
