'20s, '30s and '40s early swing and hot jazz classics
 

Acclaimed twelve-piece show band playing stylish versions of '20s, '30s and '40s early swing and hot jazz classics. For over forty years the Pasadena Roof Orchestra, based in the UK, has delighted audiences all over the world with its mix of swing and dance music. Expect to hear the music of Louis Armstrong, Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, Duke Ellington, Ray Noble, Jack Hylton, Paul Whiteman, Bix Beiderbecke and many more.

The first-ever rehearsal for the Pasadena Roof Orchestra was on November 3rd 1969.

John Arthy had placed an advertisement enquiring after dance band music. A lady in Manchester said she might be able to help. Later that day, a bakery van from John’s family business was travelling back down from Manchester to London somewhat overloaded, but safely transporting 2000 original arrangements from the 1920s and 1930s. The first tune on the huge pile of music, was Harry Warrens ‘Home in Pasadena’ the “roof” bit, came from the fact that in the 20s and 30s,  many hotels had roof gardens and of course, roof orchestras. The bandturned professional in 1975, which coincided with an astronomical almost overnight success in Germany. It has subsequently appeared around the world, the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, from Berlin to Hong Kong, via Helsinki Dublin Abu Dhabi, Istanbul all the way to the USA (five times).
