Early evening start for CHBB 20th anniversary concert

Hard to believe that the Customs House Big Band has been around for 20 years! To celebrate this milestone a special concert has been arranged for Sunday, June 16. 

As many of the band's early supporters are now 'of a certain age' the starting time has been brought forward to 6:00pm to accommodate all age groups.

The band has during its lifetime included many of the area's top talents within its ranks and, I'm pleased to say, that it still does. Vocalists have included Mia Webb and current favourite Ruth Lambert.

The present leader, Peter Morgan, runs a tight ship (as did his predecessors Tommy Moran and Keith Robinson) that knows how to swing - particularly on a summer's evening.
