Big R Big Band logo

Led by Bristol's best dressed drummer, the 16 piece Big R Big Band are firm favourites with the Bristol swing dance crowd. Frequent performers at the Slapstick and Harbourside festivals, as well as the regular Bristol swing events that happen in the city, The Big R can also be found swinging across the rest of the West Country. Being dashing, debonair, dandy and authentic, the classic swing tunes of the 30's and 40's have never sounded, or looked, so damn good.
