The Dave Hankin Big Band [Jazz]
The Dave Hankin Band was formed in November 2007 and began regularly meeting at rehearsals to work on Dave's library of personally-crafted arrangements. The full-size, 17 piece line-up, plus the captivating vocals of Bern Stewart, were soon branching out from the local venues and jazz clubs, and began performing at festivals and theatres in the South West .Along the way, the band have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in British music, with the likes of Gordon Campbell (trombone), Bruce Adams (trumpet) and Alan Barnes (saxophone) joining them for special concerts.In 2015, Dave put together a programme of music to present "Frank Sinatra - The Centennial Celebration". The success of this show, with standing ovations and rave reviews, propelled the band into the production of further themed shows in subsequent years: "The Magic of Michael Buble" and "The Magic of Glenn Miller", each meeting with similar results.Now developing quite a following, these shows have played to sold-out theatres across the region.With press accolades such as "without any exaggeration The Dave Hankin Big Band is by far the finest large-scale big band unit that we have ever had in the South West" - "Superb instrumentation and orchestration....the blending of the reeds and brass was exceptional." and "I really felt The Dave Hankin Big Band could not be bettered"
