The Nick Ross Orchestra ‘the Glenn Miller & Rat Pack era’

There are those who watch and listen, who tap a shy finger to the melodies, others who follow with a silent foot-beat, still others who murmur softly through the lyrics, and those who simply permit a fleeting smile. But common to all are memories.

“At our King’s Hall concert, we would like to pay tribute to the late Derek Southcott, a wonderful Trombone player and “Brass Legend” with connections to the Ilkley area. Derek’s was a member of the Black Dyke Band and the Syd Lawrence Orchestra, and after Syd sadly passed away, played lead Trombone with the NRO” says bandleader Nick Ross

Recapture the sounds of a bygone era as the Nick Ross Orchestra presents ‘an unmissable evening of music and song’ – the Classic Big Band Sound of the 1940s & 50s, at King’s Hall, Ilkley on Saturday 16 April 2022, 7.30pm.
