Big Band sound is here

THE Big Band sound of Ashton on Mersey Showband is back in Leigh, and they will be performing their latest CD, Feeling Good.

This latest album shows each section of the band off as never before, from the beautiful sound of the lute lead in the classic ballad That’s All to the rip-roaring big band arrangement for such numbers as the Nat King Cole favourite Love.

The concert is being held at St Joseph’s Hall, Chapel Street, Leigh, on Saturday, March 12 at 8pm. Tickets are £8 and are available from Pauline on 01942-604603 or from Ratcliffe’s Bike Shop, Bradshawgate, Leigh.

The band, who currently have over 30 musicians of outstanding calibre has been playing all over the country since 1973. They have played in countries all across Europe too and raised millions of pounds for UK charities.

This is the fourth time they have played at St Joseph’s and they have never failed to wow the audience, tickets go quickly so booking is a must to avoid disappointment.

All proceeds will go towards continuing the refurbishment of the Hall.
