The world’s longest-running international jazz band comes to The Apex...

Holland's legendary Dutch Swing College Band were officially launched on D Day 1945 and are still going strong! With over 100 albums to their name, this traditional Dixieland jazz band have appeared at festivals, theatres and royal occasions in all continents.

These world-class young players are fiery, soulful, tasteful, and enthusiastic. There’s undoubtedly a tremendous thrill in playing with the world’s longest established international jazz band and this shows in every performance.

The DSC Band played a prominent role during the post-war period, when many youngsters fell under the spell of American jazz music. But the DSC band didn’t merely copy these American virtuosos, they created their own interpretations, arrangements and compositions, building up their unique and recognizable sound.

Highly successful in their native homeland, the band appeared frequently on TV and in film productions, and quickly found an international following. Through the years many big names in jazz music have been backed by the DSC, from Sidney Bechet, Joe Venuti and Rita Reys to Teddy Wilson.

Don't miss your chance to see this superb band before their world tour hits Germany, Belgium, Russia, Thailand, China, Switzerland and Scandinavia!

Dutch Swing College Band will be at The Apex on Tuesday 9 May at 7.30pm. Tickets are £17.50, ring the Box Office on 01284 758000, or visit www.theapex.co.uk for more information, or to book your tickets.
