Syd Lawrence Orchestra

Come and join this wonderful Orchestra to celebrate 50 glorious years of swing at Middlesbrough Theatre on Friday, March 17.

In 1967 Syd Lawrence formed what was to become the UK’s most successful and longest running Big Band, performing in theatres all over Europe and regularly featuring on TV shows such as Les Dawson, Morecambe and Wise, Pebble Mill, Wheel Tappers and Shunters and a Royal Variety performance.

With Radio 2 broadcasts every week and numerous album recordings, the orchestra also toured with Tony Bennett, Matt Munro, Frankie Vaughan, Mel Torme and played concerts with Shirley Bassey.
  
For the last 20 years the Orchestra has been led by virtuoso trombonist Chris Dean and has continued to fill theatres around the country, making 14 albums under his baton and recording TV shows in England and Germany.

Tours of Brazil and Holland, Belgium and Monaco have kept the band at the top of the Big Band world.
