Venue: Main Stage
Date: Saturday 26th August
The Regent Big Band is based in Glossop. The band, of 17 players, formed in 2012. They formed with the aim of playing good music with friends, and bringing live swing music back to Glossop and beyond.
The Regent Big Band take their name from The Regent Band, a Glossop dance band from the 1950s. And the link doesn’t stop there – the current Regent has family links to members of the original group.
The Regent Big Band enjoys playing a mixture of classic swing, Big Band, latin and jazz music. The band performs regularly in the local area for public and private events.
