Royal Hall | Harrogate | 8pm

Please note this event has now taken place.


Grab your dancing shoes and get ready for an exhilarating evening of vintage Hollywood.

Formed under the youthful direction of Alex Mendham, the Orchestra authentically performs hot jazz and dance band music from the Art Deco era.

No corner is cut – from their original instruments to the pomade that slicks their hair. Add to that their stunning close-harmony sisters and crooning vocalists and you have a unique combination that is wowing audiences across Europe.

Highly in demand, the Orchestra has performed in iconic London venues to Palaces in Russia and beyond. Following a New Year’s Eve Ball engagement at the Savoy Hotel, they now hold a coveted residency at this prestigious and iconic hotel. With it, they are following in the footsteps of such hallowed 1920s and 30s dance band names as Carroll Gibbons and his Savoy Hotel Orpheans and the Savoy Havana Band.

The slick and energetic 20-piece jazz orchestra will get your toes tapping on the sprung dance floor of the Royal Hall.
