The Rutland Big Band

There’s nothing quite like the sound of a live band to get your feet moving. The Rutland Big Band can liven up your  PARTY, WEDDING, FESTIVAL, FETE OR FAIR with the old Sinatra style swing favourites, jazz numbers, or some party music to dance around to.

Our repertoire includes popular tunes from the 40s swing era such as “Moonlight Serenade” and “American Patrol” through “Rock Around The Clock” to Sinatra numbers such as “My Way”, “Sir Duke” (that’s a Stevie Wonder tune), and “Moondance” (van Morrison).

Thanks a lot for your session last Monday at the Catmose Club. […] the band played bloody well, too.
Thanks you all for a really great night!

We will be playing on the first Monday of each month at the Catmose Club in Oakham – please come along! Check before setting off – we may have to miss dates due to bank holidays and so on. Note we’ve switched from (roughly) the third to the first week, to make it more memorable.

You can hear more on the audio page.

Friday was brilliant and I have never in all the time I have been doing this job had such great feedback about a band. You were all brilliant!
I will certainly be having you back in the future.‘ –  Steve Heywood from RAF Wittering, 2014

We’re based in Oakham, and are available to play big band swing and jazz around Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire,  Northamptonshire and the East midlands in general.

The band started in 2005 and over the years our repertoire has grown, so we can adjust our setlist to suit your event.  We love to make music, so please ask about booking us, or suggesting somewhere we could do a gig. And if you just like listening, join our mailing list!
