About Us

Latest news: Malvern Big Band has a full programme of gigs for the coming year, performing a wealth of big band music from all eras and genres. Most of our gigs will be ticketed events, with tickets available in advance from Fienta or the venue in question. In general, tickets purchased online will be at a discounted rate compared to buying them on the door. We encourage you to buy tickets in advance as knowing audience numbers really helps us with arranging seating and refreshments.

Malvern Big Band Malvern Big Band, based in the Midlands, UK, was formed in 2001 by Mike Halliday and Chris Lewis. It plays an eclectic mix of music from the 'Rat Pack' era right up to contemporary jazz and pop standards - have a look at our tracks page to get a better idea about what we play.

The Band is always interested in hearing from musicians who would like to be added to our 'deps' list. If you do not play an instrument to a suitable standard but would still like to be involved in running the band, please get in touch. There are always jobs to do with the music library, equipment and general management of the practical business of putting on a performance.

We use the standard big band line up of 5 saxes, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones and 4-piece rhythm section. Some of our gigs are fronted by vocalists Garry Rutter and/or Nicole Warfield. All our gigs are promoted on this site and in and around the Malvern area.
