The Peninsula Big Band is a 17 piece traditional big band formed in 2007 with a blend of professional and experienced regular players all with a love of the big band style. Our gigs range from weddings and dances to charity fund-raisers.


We can tailor our music to suit your needs. Our repertoire includes music from the great bandleaders such as Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey and Count Basie to arrangements of more modern classics from artists such as the Beatles, Sade and Michael Jackson. So should you wish to recreate a classic dance hall evening with waltzes, foxtrots, tangos and cha-chas or add the feel good factor of big band music to your social event the Peninsula Big Band is just what you are looking for. If you want to know what we sound like here are some brief excerpts from our CD. We predominantly cover the SE of England. If you want to get in touch please see our  Contact Us  page.


Playing in a more contemporary style, two of our members have formed a modern saxophone quartet  ("Mainly Sax"). Please see our page here for more details.
