CHRIS DEAN’S SYD LAWRENCE ORCHESTRA
Chris Dean returns with his Syd Lawrence Orchestra on Thursday 17 October 7.30pm with a sparkling new show to be brimming with surprises.
Founded in 1967 by trumpeter and arranger Syd Lawrence, the fabulous Syd Lawrence Orchestra has been thrilling audiences in concert halls, theatres, on television and at music festivals all over Great Britain and Europe for over 40 years.
Renowned for its exciting blend of high octane big band swing and classic dance music, the orchestra’s repertoire ranges from the wartime million sellers of the legendary Glenn Miller through the era of the great Count Basie Orchestra to the hit songs of Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald. Count Basie himself described the Syd Lawrence Orchestra as “So good it should be BANNED!”
The Orchestra, directed since Syd’s retirement in 1996 by Chris Dean, has a repertoire of over 1,200 classic songs and they will be showcasing a selection at The Hawth this October.
Don’t miss this spectacular show full of pulsating energy- musical fireworks from the best band in the land!
Tickets are priced at £17.50 (discounts: £15.50) and are available from the Box Office on 01293 553636 or book online at www.hawth.co.uk.
