The Jonathan Wyatt Big Band will be appearing at The Corn Hall, Diss on Saturday 20th October with their show ‘Sweethearts of Swing’, which celebrates the crooners, forces sweethearts and bandleaders of WWI and WWII, with a nostalgic commemoration to the music, singers and big bands who kept up morale during both world wars.
The band who celebrated their 30th anniversary in 2017 have played for TV shows, celebrity parties and Gala performances and are described as East Anglia’s Premier Big Band. They will be joined by not one but 5 singers! Swing vocalists Stephen and Paul Amer and the band’s own vocal harmony trio The Moonglow Sisters who will take you on a trip down Memory Lane.
Jonathan says that the band are really looking forward to appearing at the venue; “We love Sweethearts of Swing because it really allows us to play some fantastic music, from instrumentals by the great bandleaders of the time such as Glenn Miller and Count Basie to some of the best songs by the great vocalists of the big band era. It’s fantastic to hear these songs sung not just by our brilliant vocalists but also the audience during the show. We have plenty of audience participation and singalong sections and it’s brilliant to always hear people joining in with these evergreen tunes.”
Anybody who is interested in attending is urged to book early to avoid disappointment following the bands usual sell-out performances at other theatres.
