About

Swing into Christmas with Big Band classics in Maidenhead

Swing into Christmas with the unique Five Star Swing Big Band show. The performance is at Norden Farm Centre for the Arts on Sunday 8 December at 7.30pm. Tickets are £17 (£15 conc).

Enjoy all your favourite Christmas songs. Five Star Swing gives the dynamic Big Band treatment to Glenn Miller, Sinatra, Basie, and Nat King Cole. They really jazz up those jingle bells!

The band features Simone from the Ivy Benson Orchestra and Chris Smith (Jnr) composer and arranger for the BBC Radio Big Band, Herb Miller Big Band (Glenn’s brother), plus Tony Bennett’s trombonist. They have performed on BBC’s Children in Need, Dame Vera Lynn’s Charity Ball and Blackpool Tower Ballroom.

The band leader Chris Smith’s compositions and arrangements are frequently played by Jazz FM, Capital Radio, BBC Radio Big Band and the Royal Variety Performance. As a piano or trumpet player, Chris has appeared on BBC’s Top of the Pops, and at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club and The Royal Variety Show. He has toured extensively with the Herb Miller Orchestra, as well as playing at jazz festivals throughout the world. Under Chris’ direction, Five Star Swing’s excellent vocalists and musicians create the vibrant sound of the Big Band era.

Get into the festive spirit and swing-along to Five Star Swing’s rare feel-good effect of a true Vintage Swing Band.
