North Swindon Big Band began life as the U3A Dance Orchestra in 1993 and in 2017 we relaunched as the North Swindon Big Band with our new Musical Director Karen Cordon.

The band consists of:-

5 Saxophones
4 Trumpets
4 Trombones

The bands extensive repertoire has been built over the years and includes many dance numbers (i.e. Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Quickstep, Cha Cha, Rhumba etc.) as well as many Big Band standards including Glen Miller, Count Basie etc.


North Swindon Big Band also has many arrangements made popular by Frank Sinatra and the ‘Rat Pack’.

Whether you are a devotee of the swing bands or are new to the music you will have undoubtedly have heard many of our numbers such as ‘In The Mood’, ‘American Patrol’, ‘Mack The Knife’, I’ve Got You Under My Skin’; the list is extensive.

You can, of course, simply listen to the band, but our music is also for dancing. We will tailor our programmes to your function requirements
