How the Bob Cutting Big Band Christmas Dance came about
It was back in 1972, when a young Bob Cutting joined the Eddie Curtis Orchestra. He worked, recorded and toured as lead trumpet/soloist with The John Miller Orchestra and before that the Herb Miller Orchestra. This was the beginning of a professional career in performing and teaching that brings us to today. There have been other notable freelance ventures with various bands and shows such as Swings the Thing, Debbie Curtis Radio Big Band, The Joe Loss Orchestra, The Ray McVay Orchestra and The Glenn Miller UK band being a few to note.
Its always enlightening to have a chat with Bob about the days of the Big Band sound and the relationship between the music, the musicians and the dance floor.
The Bob Cutting Big Band Christmas Dance Night promises to be a really fun night out so please do come along and join us on the dance floor.
