Biography

The Palace Avenue Dance Orchestra is an authentic and highly swinging Dance Orchestra performing special arrangements of music from the 1930s and 40s. The band performs a fully transcribed pad of music, with each song painstakingly taken down from original recordings and arranged specifically for the band, with feature numbers for each member.

The music that the band performs is mostly British and American dance band music chosen from this golden era of jazz, and the majority of the repertoire are real hidden gems, with many more classic and familiar numbers included. The rich, haunting melodies of Isham Jones, Lew Stone, Ambrose and Jack Hylton mix with distinctive and driving early 1930s Fletcher Henderson, Nat Gonella, Cab Calloway, and Mills Blue Rhythm, all the way up to later 30/40s numbers from Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Ellington, Dorsey and Louis Armstrong.
