The Royal Air Force College Swing Wing Band will return to Wisbech and perform a concert in the theatre of Thomas Clarkson Academy, on Saturday March 30.
There will be many familiar faces in the band including leader Sgt Tom Ringrose, vocalist SAC Philippa Hobbs and drummer Chief Technician Jim Moss.
There will also be some new faces and returning will be Rob Scullion who performed with the band at their first ever concert in Wisbech in 2010.
Formed in 1989, RAF Swing Wing is a 20-piece big band that features the melodies of a golden age in music when swing meant more than a piece of playground equipment.
Their programme will include very popular numbers covering all swing band years, as well as including later tunes bringing them right up to date.
The concert starts at 7.30pm with doors opening at 6.30pm. Tickets are £10 and proceeds will be donated to local RAF charities.
Call Jan or Ray Hutchinson on 01945 584595 to reserve tickets, which are also on sale at Sarah’s Flowers, 16 Market Street, Wisbech.
