The Swing Commanders, Europe’s leading West swing band, hits Darley Dale this weekend for its Christmas concert.
The vibrant and versatile group performs an exciting mix of 30s to 50s music, from American Songbook classics, boogie-woogie, western swing, jump jazz and more.
The music is complemented with lush vocal harmonies and hot solos. The rhythms vary from ballads to jive to quicksteps.
They are helped along by GI Jive, the professional dance team of Ian and Sheilagh Hartley. They will demonstrate how to do the jive before Saturday’s concert in the Whitworth Centre, Darley Dale. Tickets from www.peakconcerts.co.uk
