For the first time ever The Dig for Victory Show will have a fabulous live swing band taking centre stage on the Saturday night 11th of June; Lucy Moon and the Bruce/Ilett 7 are a sensational new collaboration of Bristol Jazzers!Reputed swing vocalist Lucy Moon of the Paper Moon Band has joined forces with the core players of the Bruce/Ilett Big Band to create a hard swinging, deliciously harmonic octet evoking the sound of the 40’s.
Fronted by Lucy’s rich vocals, featuring the powerhouse trumpet playing of Jonny Bruce within a 4 piece horn section and the original arrangements of swing classics from virtuoso guitarist Denny Ilett; this band swings with a force that is undeniably exhilarating.
For those of you getting a Saturday Night Dance ticket it also includes a complimentary dance lesson by Swing Dance Bristol and supporting act The Goodnight Sweethearts. Enjoy drinks from the bar, delicious food from the stalls around the marquee and a night of great music!
