“RAY’S IN THE MOOD” as the world’s GREATEST Big Band transports you back to the heady days and music of the 1940s -  with the fabulous harmonies of the Moonlight Serenaders and the sublime vocals of Catherine Sykes and Mark Porter. 

This year marks the 75th anniversary of Glenn Miller’s arrival in UK with his Army Air Force band to support the troops in the Allied Invasion of Northwest Europe. He arrived in July 1944 and played around 80 concerts and broadcasts before his disappearance on a flight to Paris six months later. The legacy he left was his amazing swing music. The current UK orchestra was formed by Ray McVay in 1988 under licence from the Glenn Miller Estate and has the exact same line-up as Glenn’s original band: 5 saxes, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones and 3 rhythm plus male and female vocalists. It’s as near to the original sound as you can possibly get!

Featuring: – In the Mood, Moonlight Serenade, American Patrol, Little Brown Jug, Tuxedo Junction and the song that became pop history’s first gold disc, Chattanooga Choo Choo! Audiences of all ages will be thrilled by the sound of this amazing Big Band.
