June 24th brought the exciting Anything Goes Orchestra to the Hinckley ACT in Leicestershire.
They are a Ukulele based band playing classic jazz, swing, pop and punk songs for your enjoyment – nothing is sacred.
From the humble little ukuleles to the double bass, washboard, kazoo and children’s drum kit.
The small instruments combine and layer to create a big band sound suitable for all kinds of events.
‘“Don’t Wait” is an apt title for the Anything Goes Orchestra’s new CD. It begs to be listened to right now! Great song choices, great playing and great vocals make for a thoroughly enjoyable CD. Don’t wait.’
The entrance fee for the evening was £8 for members and £9 for non-members. The event started at 8 pm, with doors opening at 7.30 p.m.
Based in the Sketchley Meadows Business Park, Hinckley ACT is a high quality music venue that offers an informal and intimate atmosphere for concerts and for the monthly club nights, where musicians can come along and ‘take the stage.’ Established by company chairman, Keith London, on the premises of his firm Advanced Carbide Tooling (A.C.T.), the venue provides full stage and seating facilities, plus top quality sound and lighting equipment.
There is a licensed bar and ample free car parking.
