Founded by John Arthy in 1969, the Pasadena Roof Orchestra has been faithfully re-creating the glories of popular music from the 1920s and 1930s. The fun-packed show features timeless classics from the Great American Songbook – those wonderful songs that miraculously lifted people’s spirits during the depression era, and which made household names of singers such as Bing Crosby, Al Bowlly, and Fred Astaire.
This matchless orchestra masters the arrangements and sound of the fabled American orchestras such as Duke Ellington and Fletcher Henderson, whilst also paying tribute to the great British dance Bands like Ray Noble or Ambrose.
Presenting the show, and putting on the top hat white tie and tails, is the suave singer and bandleader Duncan Galloway. So pack up your troubles, come on get happy, and experience an evening of superlative live music, with more than a dash of wit and humour.
