IMPECCABLE BIG BAND SOUND
Formed in 1990, the 78 RPM Big Band dominates the jazz, blues and funk scene in Cambridge. Its lively and versatile approach has quickly established it as one of the most popular bands in the Eastern Region and beyond. With their showmanship and energetic style, performances are definately not to be missed.
THE ESSENTIAL PERFORMANCE
The seventeen piece band is equally at home in a concert environment as they are in the strict tempo ballroom or local club or pub. Whatever the venue their performance is electric, spontaneous and full of vitality and enthusiasm. They are immaculately turned out in their black polo shirts which sport the distinctive 78 RPM logo, or dinner jackets are worn for the more formal occasion.
A STOREHOUSE OF SOUNDS
78 RPM play a wide range of music from the luscious big band tones of Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington and Count Basie, through the funk of The Average White Band and Earth, Wind and Fire, to the progressive jazz of Pat Metheny and even the theme from the Naked Gun Films.
HOLDING IMPRESSIVE CREDENTIALS
The individual musicians have impressive credentials with varied and interesting backgrounds. They have a wealth of experience in live performing, coming from the QE2 and the Canberra, have featured in numerous radio and TV broadcasts and have played with Mark Rattray, Luke Goss, Bernie Marsden and Colin Blunstone, The Drifters, Shakatak and Katrina and the Waves.
