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."

SWING UNLIMITED JAZZ CLUB

The RIVIERA HOTEL, Burnaby Road, Alum Chine, B'mth, BH4 8JF

The SUJC continues to go from strength to strength. Over the past four years we have welcomed some of the best local, national & international jazz musicians and we have a huge line up still to come. Check out the 'Jazz Club' page for full listings!

THIS WEEK 1st JULY

This fast-approaching 1st of July Wednesday evening we are very proud to present SU2 - Swing Unlimited's COMMUNITY BIG BAND - a 20-piece big band playing our trademark unlimited variety of music - from Glenn Miller to The Average White Band, from Sade to Louis Prima! By all means bring your dancing shoes!

NEXT WEEK 8th JULY

By complete contrast - as is our wont at SUJC - the following Wednesday 8th July we have only 10% of the size of SU2 - but oh my word what a duo they are! WILL McNICOL & LUKE SELBY bring their incredible acoustic guitar + percussion - if you haven't seen some of their brilliant videos, check them out here! Will McNicol and Luke Selby - Oscar's Philosophy youtube
