Swing / Big Band
The swing band was formed in 2005 from members of Werneth Concert Band who had expressed an interest in playing swing/big band music.
Initially we rehearsed only occasionally in preparation for playing at the Werneth Concert Band Annual BBQ.
In 2007, reflecting a growing interest in the band, we started rehearsing regularly and began to receive requests to play at private and public engagements.
The Werneth Swing Band consists of a standard swing/big band line-up, made up of alto, tenor baritone saxophones, trumpets, trombones and a rhythm section comprising of rhythm and bass guitar, keyboard and drum kit. It has been invited to play at engagements across the Greater Manchester area and also played at the opening of an Arts Exhibition in Beverley, Yorkshire. It continues be an activity of Werneth Concert Band and accompanied the main band on our concert tours to Spain in 2010 and Portugal in 2013.
