19-piece big band will perform at Elephant pub

For the first time in the history of Ashington Jazz club, a big band is booked to play at the Elephant pub.

The 19-piece Strictly Smokin’ Band rehearse and perform on a regular basis to keep their music top class.

There is a constant investment into new material to give a fresh sound each time you hear them.

The Strictly Smokin’ Big Band combines a deep reverence for the big band tradition with the immediacy and excitement of the 21st century to produce a truly classic yet highly contemporary sound.

The band plays Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Glen Miller, Buddy Rich and everything in between.

Strickly Smokin’ 19-piece big band will be at The Elephant pub in Ashington on Wednesday, October 1, at 8pm.

Tickets are priced at £7 including a free raffle.
