DAVE ANDERSON BIG BAND in Concert Mure Church
On Friday 16th January, a 16- piece Big Band will be playing in concert at The Mure Church in Irvine’s West Road and it’s for everyone who enjoys the Big Band sound.
The Mure will be playing host to The Dave Anderson Big Band and the evening starts at 7.30pm. The concert is organised by the Church’s Entertainments Committee and is one of a series of such events run not to raise funds but simply to bring people together.
Dave Anderson Big Band members come from all over Ayrshire. A couple of the band are professional musicians but the majority are semi-professional or enthusiastic amateurs! The Band comprises five saxophones, four trumpets, four trombones, piano, bass and drums. The vocalist on the 16th January will be John Griffin.
The Band was established some 14 years ago by Dave Anderson and their repertoire includes Count Basie, Glen Miller and Duke Ellington plus some more contemporary arrangements for big bands. The Band plays for concerts and dances including for the last several years, a Strictly Sunday dance event at the annual Live@Troon festival.
Tickets to hear The Dave Anderson Big Band are priced £6 and they are available from Joyce Hodge on 551047 or you can pay at the door. The ticket includes Tea & Shortbread.
If you like Big Band music or maybe learning a brass instrument or simply just like live music, be in the audience on Friday 16th January at The Mure Church to hear The Dave Anderson Big Band.
