A song from the fantastic Roo:

With apologies for sitting behind the dance floor. I’d had a couple of pints by then!

Recorded at the Grainstore Beer Festival 2018

At our (roughly) monthly Catmose Club shows – come along next time!

This was a slightly new thing for us. We’re used to lindy hoppers at 40s nights, or people bopping around after a couple of beers at a party.

Last night though, we had dance champions in front of us .. what a sight! Lauren Ainsworth and Charles Kruger wowed the audience with their skills as they did three dance demos during the evening. Sadly I was trying to concentrate on playing without getting distracted too much. The Victoria Hall was packed, and in between the rest of the crowd took to the floor as well.

We had some brilliant photos taken for us by Peter Mason as well.

It’s true that we’re the Rutland Big Band, but Corby isn’t far away. If you’re near Corby and fancy a swing band, we’d be delighted to come and play for your 40s event, wedding, party, or in your village hall – please get in touch and have a chat. You can hear us on the ‘listen to us’ page.

It’s true that we’re the Rutland Big Band, but Stamford in Lincolnshire is only just along the road. Some of us even live in Lincolnshire! If you’re in Stamford and looking for a swing band to play for your wedding, party, or in your village hall , we’d love to hear from you. We can play a variety of jazz, swing, and some rock n roll party tunes for you.
