One of the world’s greatest Big Bands comes to the Winter Garden, Eastbourne this summer (Sunday 20 August) as the highly-acclaimed Glenn Miller Orchestra swings in for an afternoon of toe-tapping music featuring the legendary American bandleader’s greatest hits, directed by Ray McVay.
Charismatic Bandleader Ray and the orchestra capture the magic of Glenn Miller’s era as they perform timeless classics such as Moonlight Serenade, Tuxedo Junction, Chattanooga Choo Choo, Pennsylvania 6-500, American Patrol and In the Mood.
Special guests Swing Time Jivers perform high-energy Lindy Hop dance moves, made popular in the 40s and perfectly suited to Glenn Miller’s swing music, and bring a high-octane visual element to some of Miller’s favourite arrangements leaving audiences awe-struck.
Plus, the Polka Dot Dolls will be performing a special tribute to the harmonic Andrews Sisters. The Dolls are a wonderfully acclaimed vocal harmony trio who capture the romance and glamour of a bygone era and have performed in perfect harmony at many prestigious and high profile events including: 10 Downing Street, Jamie Oliver's 'Big Feastival' and 'Swing on the Beach' in Pescara, Italy.
Ray started the Glenn Miller Orchestra in 1988 when he sought permission from the Glenn Miller estate to form a British based Glenn Miller Orchestra, so this is not a tribute act but a band which plays strictly true to everything that Miller had created.
