No title

THE new Squadronaires bring the swing to Barrow, with a concert at The Forum next weekend.

Playing the music of the great swing bands including Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, and Benny Goodman, among others, the concert on Sunday June 26 includes some of the original Squadronaires music arrangements which have not been played since 1964. Originally formed by the RAF to help boost morale, the Squadronaires went on to surpass even the most popular of the American bands during World War II.

The band recently reformed under the leadership of Trumpet player Greg Francis – the bandleader of the Memphis Belle Swing Orchestra – as a tribute to the original wartime orchestra, with musicians dressed in RAF uniform and the visual spectacle of a wartime band setting.

The show takes place at 3pm, and tickets are available from the box office.
