The Good Guys Orchestra
An evening of Sensational Swing
THE GOOD GUYS ORCHESTRA
The celebrated ‘Good Guys Orchestra’ will return to Lincoln with an explosive evening of the best of Big Band Music around. With the fantastic guest singer Cherie Gears, the 12-piece Good Guys offer a sumptuous programme of music. From the Great American Song Book to the Rat Pack, dazzling jazz chartreus Cherie and the band’s own leader and vocalist Guy Garrett present an evening of great music for all tastes, backed, of course, by the swing band sound of some of the best musicians around playing the great charts from the likes of Duke Ellington and Glenn Miller.
For fans of ‘The Good Guys Orchestra’, this show offers the chance to hear the band expressing another side of its musical character, but the band’s characteristic energy and artistry is still very much to the fore with the musicians taking centre stage in some numbers and some featured soloists.
Guy Garrett, the orchestra leader, cut his teeth with the world famous ‘RAF Squadronaires’ as did a number of the other players in ‘The Good Guys Orchestra’. He said: “While the full band loves to get its teeth into the complex musical arrangements of Goodwin and Nestico, we also wanted to offer an alternative programme to show the beauty of many of the great songs. In the hands of great players, and amazing vocalists, these numbers absolutely soar, which is why we call this show ‘An Evening of Sensational Swing’.
