SUBB wow Rotary Club charity fundraiser at AFC Bournemouth's Goldsands Stadium

Swing Unlimited Big Band put on a great show for Bournemouth North Rotary Club's annual charity fundraiser in aid of Cherry Trees Nursery last Saturday night at the Goldsands Stadium. Performing their renown "unlimited" repertoire - ranging from Glenn Miller classics such as In The Mood and Tuxedo Junction, to Rat Pack songs and pop tunes by Toploader, The Mavericks, Stevie Wonder and Michael Buble - the 200+ guests danced, laughed and cheered their way through SUBB's two sets - and raised hundreds of pounds along the way! Here's what they said:

"your show tonight was, without doubt, the very best evening's entertainment we have ever enjoyed. The music was simply wonderful, fantastic! Your guys were so very good. It was a wonderful experience for all of us who came to enjoy it. Congratulations, you have made a lot of friends and we will, without doubt, be booking you again. It was fabulous. Thank you all so much."
