Sunday 16th April 5pm / Main House


The UK’s finest dance band playing music from the roaring 1920s and elegant 1930s. A concert from the Pasadena Roof orchestra is a complete show, as Brendan Murphy from Bristol 365 wrote in a review from April 8th, 2018

‘There is a reason why they call these songs timeless and listening to them performed with such fine and faultless musicianship really was like a wonderfully indulgent, wistful trip down memory lane.’

Not just a show with music, but some delightful tomfoolery is in store with Band Leader Duncan Galloway and his musical comrades performing an impressive program of music from the dance band era. Included will be the songs of Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, plus some classic tunes from Louis Armstrong, and sumptuous arrangements from the likes of Duke Ellington and his orchestra, plus songs from the great British bands Ray Noble, and Ambrose. Come along and listen to hits that were sung by Bing Crosby, Al Bowlly and Fred Astaire (plus some dancing!).
