'The Big Band was the idea of Ashby-de-la-Zouch  trumpeter David Bradford who not only wanted to offer local musicians the chance to play in one of the best big bands around, but to also give the local community a band they could be proud of. The band is now one of the best Glenn Miller/1940s tribute bands in the country, with many players living in the Ashby area but also players coming from as far afield as Birmingham, Northampton and Chesterfield.'

'Manchester's leading amateur Big Band  ... with 30 musicians playing a century of popular music across the Northwest and beyond ... The Band was formed by Dave Egerton in 1983 initially as a youth band fusing Dave’s brass band background with woodwinds and was known then by the name that is still its official title – The Altrincham Concert Band ... Whether we are playing on a bandstand in the park; on stage with a Big Band night; or at a wedding; we are here to help your special occasion be filled with great music and memories. Come along and sit back while we take you down memory lane.'

'Formed in 1978 for pupils of the Foulstone School by the school’s former music teacher Holin Hammerton. The band was originally known as the Dearne Youth Big Band until its name was changed in 1983 to the Dearne Big Band and Singers to reflect the fact that many within the band were no longer youths. This is still evident today with the age range in the Band of 16 to 60 years ... The Dearne Big Band & Singers is the primary fundraiser for The Barnsley Youth Jazz Association ... None of the members of The Dearne Big Band & Singers take a fee for their performances, all fees are re-invested into The Barnsley Youth Jazz Association.'

'Formed in 2003 after various members of the Hertfordshire Concert Band were lamenting in the pub that there were no local big bands we could join to play big band music we had previously played in bands when we were younger. After some discussions we realised we had enough players to form a band, and so the Hertfordshire Big Band was born ...'
