The double-band show and dance will feature Glenn Miller-style music of the 40s played by Opus 17, and the trad sound played by Barry Tyler’s Original Dixieland Jazz Band.

Opus 17 will be playing music from both the 40s and the 60s, with hits from artists such as Dusty Springfield and Ella Fitzgerald sung by Kimberley Devonshire.

Michael Duble sound-alike Tom Veasey will also be singing several of his popular songs.

Eric Grant, of Ely Rotary Club, said: “The magic of the big-bands comes through strongly, of course, with the nostalgic reminiscences direct from the 40s. Since this show is entitled ‘Forties and Sixties dance’, this brings music from the Kenny Ball and Acker Bilk era.”
