Playing for your entertainment:  

The Forum Big Band

The Forum Big Band is made up of professional musicians who enjoy coming together to reproduce the fabulous music that was generated during an era that was arguably the most exciting artistic development in entertainment of the 20th Century.

The Band has an extensive repertoire and keeps audiences entertained by playing the hits first brought to us by the heroes of the Big Band era such as Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Frank Sinatra and many, many others.

The Band is led by Alf’s son Nigel and they have a reputation for always giving a professional performance to their audiences whenever they play.

The Big Band Theory

Presenting modern songs with a vintage swing twist, The Big Band Theory is one of the most exciting acts on the modern big band scene.

Expect the unexpected and be prepared to let the band take you to new places with music from Van Halen to The Killers, Oasis to Bobby Darin, choreography and audience participation, there is something for everyone!

Northallerton Music Centre Swing Band

‘Mood Swings’ are a group of extremely talented 11-18 year old students who get together for 2 hours on a Saturday morning to rehearse traditional swing classics and contempory chart hits under the guidance of their Musical Director Alan Owens.
