Swing time


Several issues ago The Village ran a feature on The Worcestershire Jazz Orchestra, so, as a lover of live big band music, I decided to amble on down to the Droitwich Legion and have a listen.

Thank you – they were/are absolutely fantastic. As soon as they blew the first notes I wondered where on earth those sounds came from; true great big band sounds.

Yet when I looked around, the audience consisted of about 28 persons – why?

Where else can you find professional musicians entertaining you, purchase a strip of raffle tickets and buy a drink for under £10?

For those who enjoy Glenn Miller and Count Basie to Ted Heath and Ella to Bobby Darin and Sinatra, come and listen please – this secret needs to be shared! 

Their next concert is on April 1 at the Legion.
