22nd April at the Longfield Suite, Prestwich
The GMP Big Band will appeared on stage for a concert organised by the Rotary Club of Bolton Lever, together with AUD-Med
The band played two sets of great music from across the decades, ranging from traditional big-band classics from the likes of Sinatra and Miller, to disco hits that guests enjoyed listening to, and even did a little bit of dancing!
The band had a superb evening and enjoyed playing for the Rotary Club - they also really liked the Longfield Suite as a venue, thanks to it's big stage and great sound. We hope to play there again soon!
All proceeds from the concert will go towards Rotary International and AUD-Med - a small charity based in the North West, run by medical and clinical professionals. It is dedicated to helping deaf people in developing countries.
