The Pasadena Roof Orchestra - Alnwick Playhouse (May 29.)

All seats in the theatre are occupied. Lights are low and the audience whisper amongst themselves.Then, with a quiet swish, the curtains are drawn aside and the gentle murmers subside. On stage is revealed the precision setting of musical instruments and Art Deco presentation of perhaps Europe's best loved big band. The Pasadena Roof Orchestra are in town. I am privileged to be here at Alnwick in England's North Northumberland. The next two hours are sheer bliss. What a show. Thanks Lance for the timely reminder of their appearance. Keep up the good work on all things jazz. George Watt.
