Syd Lawrence Orchestra


Golden Night of Swing – 50th Anniversary Tour


Chris Dean musical director


The piano takes more of a back seat in this performance with the world-renowned Syd Lawrence Orchestra. In 1967 Syd Lawrence formed what was to become the UK’s most successful and longest running Big Band, performing in theatres all over Europe and regularly featuring on many TV shows such as Les Dawson, Morecambe and Wise, Pebble Mill, Wheel Tappers and Shunters, and a Royal Variety performance.


And this wonderful orchestra hasn’t slowed down! For the last 20 years the orchestra has been led by virtuoso trombonist Chris Dean and has continued to fill theatres around the country, making 14 albums under his baton and recording TV shows in England and Germany. Tours of Brazil and Holland, Belgium and Monaco have kept the band at the top of the big band world.


Come and join this wonderful orchestra to celebrate 50 glorious years of swing!
