Bellingen Big Band

Sunday, 14 July 2024 | 02:00 PM to 04:30 PM


The Bellingen Big Band is a not-for-profit, community based group. This ensemble has been running weekly for over 25 years, providing training, performance opportunities, and a supportive musical environment. 

The band plays a wide range of musical styles from the 1920s through to the modern era, including Swing, RnB, Latin, and Motown plus Vocals.

The concert starts with a classic swingin’ tunes, Moten Swing and Bandstand Boogie followed by Almost like Being in Love sung by Georgie Chorley. Next come a bunch of Latin style arrangements - Copacabana, One Mint Julep and Funky Cha - Cha to select a few.

The second half kicks off with Come Together and Hanky Panky, -  instrumental features along with vocals on Signed, Sealed, Delivered and The Look of Love.

The band finishes with Come Fly with Me to cap off a very exciting concert.

We rely entirely on donations to be able to continue running and developing our skills, we appreciate your support.
