Equinor Big Band
Putting the Ellington swing into Spring
Special overseas guests, Equinor Big Band, from Norway pay homage to “The Duke” with their fabulous show, “Shades of Ellington”. The band brings 24 musicians and two vocalists to celebrate one of the world’s most iconic bandleader and his music.
The band has been playing together since 1990 and are based in Stavanger on the western coast of Norway. We are extremely lucky they’ve chosen to play in Lyme Regis, their only UK appearance in 2019. Don’t miss the best swing concert you’ll hear all year from a band at the top of its game.
They’ve previously performed at Swansea Jazz Festival (UK), Riverboat Jazzfestival (Denmark), Upton Jazz Festival (UK), Roskilde Jazz Days (Denmark), Jazzkaar Tallinn (Estonia) and Molde Jazzfestival (Norway).
“Hugely entertaining and joyous tribute to Duke Ellington from a top class international big band”.
