The Apollo Big Band with
We are fortunate to be joined by one of the country's best known saxophonist. Simon has toured extensively including world wide tours with the icon Paul Jones.
This will be a great evening of Big Band music including many well known favourites of the genre plus some more recent compositions and arrangements such as those by Gordon Goodwin.
The Apollo Big Band will support Simon Currie who is, perhaps best known for playing with the Manfreds and Paul Jones for 20+ years. But Simon has a wonderful pedigree having played with great artists such as Peggy Lee, Brook Benton, George Benson and groups including The Four Tops, The Temptations and many more. A great evening in prospect!
