Andrew Linham Jazz Orchestra


[United Kingdom] London London
ProfessionalBigBand

The Andrew Linham Jazz Orchestra is a contemporary big band playing the original music of leader and composer Andrew Linham. They premiered their first album 'Weapons of Mass Distraction' in 2017 having formed in 2014 for the performance of two suites of music 'The Linferno Suite' (2013) and 'Theme Music of Anarchic Animals' (2015). They annually perform a 'Christ-Mess Extravaganza' at The Vortex and are a hidden gem in the London Jazz scene. Featuring a wealth of young talent, this millenial big band enjoys pastiche and wacky humour led with irreverance celebrating the wealth of diversity of style in the history of jazz. Downbeat said of them “The cleverly titled Weapons of Mass Distraction firmly establishes the Andrew Linham Jazz Orchestra has a signification addition to today’s big band scene and a group that deserves wider recognition at the international level.” Ed Enright, Downbeat Review (Editor’s Pick) December 2017

Moonlight Swing


[United States (USA)] Northern California Sacramento
ProfessionalBigBand

The Moonlight Swing Living History Big Band was established in 1996 as a non-profit historical organization whose chartered mission is to keep the memory and music of Glenn Miller and the Great Big Band Era alive for all to enjoy. The majority of our charts have been arranged from either original 78s and V-discs from World War II, charts that have been donated from original artists or from our in house arrangers. The band is based in the Sacramento, California area. We have played a wide variety of venues since 1996, as intimate as a backyard wedding anniversary to as large as playing for the late Bob Hope at the Stockton Air Show in front of thousands of people. The band appears in World War II Army Air Corps uniforms or in 1940s style formal attire (white dinner jackets).
