'Live from the Bandstand' is a series of free, live music concerts taking place in Alton Public Gardens on various Sunday afternoons throughout the summer.

The 'Blue Sky Big Band' will be performing on Sunday 7th August at 2pm.

Blue Sky Big Band plays predominantly Jazz and Swing style music, typical of the Big Band era of the 1940s. We cover music from many composers and artists including Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Woody Herman and Louis Prima to mention but a few. Our repertoire also includes a number of modern pieces but everything we play is suitable for dancing and easy listening.

The Band has a traditional Big Band format with Saxophones (Alto, Tenor and Baritone), Trumpets, Trombones and a Rhythm section which comprises Drums, Double Bass/Electric Bass, Keyboard/Vibraphone and Guitar.
