Band leader and vocalist Duncan Galloway promised “hot music from the 1920s and 1930s”.

And his hugely talented orchestra didn’t disappoint.

They came up with a slick, smooth and silky programme which featured a host of tunes from the two decades … and more with an

Eclectic selection of numbers from their incredible repertoire.

They performed songs by Irving Berlin, Ray Noble, Cole Porter and Duke Ellington to name but a few.
