Early in 2016 we formed a Big Band (Jazz and Swing) from among u3a members in the West Midlands. We are currently compiling a library of tunes much in the Count Basie, Duke Ellington, and Glen Miller style as well as more recent charts. The Band is now called: "u3a Swing Division"
The band is based in Balsall Common, meets on alternate Tuesdays Starting at 2:00 PM, rehearse in the The Blessed Robert Grissold Catholic Church in Meeting House Lane.
We need more brass and saxophone members and if you have played in the past donít worry about being rusty as we are constructing a friendly and safe environment to enjoy playing and learning more about this wonderful genre.
