Stage Band.

  • When it's operating, we mainly play music published for school stage bands, focusing on 40's and 50's big band swing arrangements.
  • Instruments include up to 5 saxophones, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, piano, bass, guitar, and drum kit. We need more players now to re-start the stage band.
