Big band sound at the Grand

THE 16-piece Dave Clegg Big Band returns to the Grand Hotel’s Cotton Club on Sunday, at 7.45pm.

It is made up of musicians from across the North who have worked with Ted Heath, Joe Loss, John Dankworth, the George Bradley Orchestra and the Geoff Laycock Big Band.

The band has grown in popularity since being formed in May last year, says Dave.

Sunday’s programme includes great tunes from George Gershwin, Duke Ellington and Glenn Miller, and will feature Roger Maughan and Brenda Sharman on vocals.
