Act Profile

Movie Killers Bigband

The band is run by saxophonist Andy Isherwood, who has selected some of the finest young and experienced musicians from the UK.
All musicians are professionals who specialise in jazz and virtuoso big band performance... There's nothing that compares to the sound of an allstar big band in full Swing!
We offer a compelling repertoire of Movie themes and Cult classics, perfect for a 'Hollywood' themed event. But that's not all!
We also have a selection of 'Strictly' dancing music including Hot Latin numbers, Mambos, Tangos, Rhythm and Blues, Rock 'n Roll, Jump Jive and Swing, Cha Cha's, Waltzs, Dixieland, even Jazz and Easy listening music for dining.

With the added option of vocalists and full Latin Percussion section, we can guarantee to get everyone up on the dancefloor partying the night away.

Outstanding musicianship, sharp dress code, high energy and bespoke arrangements are the hallmark of this dynamic ensemble.
Just listen to the live audio!
