If you enjoy the music of big bands such as Count Basie, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington and their contemporaries you will really enjoy this show. The BBO gets its name from the three counties the original members were drawn from, namely: Bucks, Berks, Oxon. The 20 piece band is made up of both male and female vocalists, saxophones, trumpets, trombones and a rhythm section comprising of piano, guitar, bass and drums. The Band members are professionals, semi-pros and those who have retired from the business but just can’t stop coming back who are drawn together by the infectious drive and swing of the big band repertoire.

Returning to the festival after an acclaimed performance in 2017 this promises to be a memorable evening of classic, big band, and swing music.
