Workshop: Dance Band

Foxtrots, quicksteps, waltzes, rumbas, cha cha chas and sambas: A rare opportunity to enjoy, and experience from the player’s point of view, the sound and style of strict tempo Ballroom and Latin music from the 1930s to 1950s using published (“stock”) arrangements. Trumpets, trombones, saxes (perhaps doubling clarinet), violins, guitar, double bass, drums and even (at Roger’s discretion) the odd singer, will enjoy rehearsing favourite standards and neglected gems, exploring the dancers’ needs and authentic style, as well as the universal skills of the ensemble musician.
Please note that applications from drummers and singers will be referred to Roger before acceptance.
