Director at Red-C Events, Dan Stevens, dressed up for the occasion in 1920’s attire and told the News Of The Area, “It’s like being on Broadway, you don’t get to see fourteen musicians performing on stage like this very often, you could hear every instrument.” The Big Big Boogie Band have been together for 20 years but like many bands of this magnitude, the musicians come and go but it’s the love of music that binds them together as saxophone players Thomas Madden and David explained. “We just love music, that’s why we are still together, we love playing and we love performing, we don’t have backing music, every instrument is an important ingredient to the show and when you see it live you can tell the difference,” they said. Director at Red-C Events, Jane Reidy wants to do it again. “We will definitely be having The Big Big Boogie Band back, so look out for dates on our website or socials. “It was a lot of fun, with great music, and having the staff and patrons dress up in the big band theme makes it a special night too, it was a fabulous atmosphere,” said Jane. By David WIGLEY 14 musicians make up the The Big Big Boogie Band. The band opened with Peter Gunn, the Blues Brothers theme song.
