Steve King Big Band
The band originally started as an offshoot of Steve’s school orchestra, and from these early beginnings as a youth band, the passage of time has, after forty five years turned the Steve King Big Band into one of the Midlands leading exponents of big band music.
Part of the band's appeal is the wide range of musical styles it plays. A typical concert will encompass anything from Goodman to Goodwin. With a woodwind section that doubles twenty-six instruments between them and a tuba player and tuned percussionist as part of the regular line-up, this band tackles many charts other bands cannot reach! The demanding concert programme features the best big band music of the last 60 years.
Vocals are in the very capable hands of Lynn Dawes who hails from the USA. Lynn has appeared on four of the band’s albums and has proved a big hit with audiences throughout the UK.
