Swing and Big Band Music

Follow the big band sound through 2019....

Room21 Big Band is a 22-piece band featuring 4 vocalists - including The Axholme Sisters who sing an Andrews Sisters tribute. The band is based in Haxey (in North Lincolnshire just south of the Humber Bridge) and we draw our musicians from Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire.

A regular performer at social events, dinner dances and 1940s occasions across the region, our ‘Fabulous Forties Nights’ are extremely popular and the band has played at The Assembly Rooms in Bath, Bawtry Hall (wartime HQ for Bomber Command), at Duxford Imperial War Museum (annual Sally B Flying Fortress Day), under the Vulcan in its hangar at Finningley, at the popular afternoon dances at Bridlington Spa and also at Brodsworth Hall and Gardens (English Heritage)

The band specialises in 1940s music including Glenn Miller, Count Basie and Frank Sinatra. Repertoire is drawn from 1930s, 1940s and 1950s featuring favourites such as ‘In the Mood’, ‘Moonlight Serenade’, 'Tuxedo Junction’, ‘Song of India’ and vocals including Fly Me to The Moon’, ‘Lady is a Tramp’, ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’ and I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm’. Our Axholme Sisters’ numbers include ‘Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy’, ‘Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree’ and 'Oh! Johnny Oh! Johnny Oh!'.

Band leader Nigel Robson says, “The enthusiasm and love for big band music is greater than ever and the energy of Room21 Big Band captures it – keep music live!”
