The band is hosting a three-set extravaganza of jazz, swing, blues, Latin and more at Victoria Hall, Ripponden.

Featuring classic swing era hits through to more modern numbers, the band will also be showcasing several new tunes as well as the debut performance by its new vocalist, Robert Gee.

Doors open at 7.30pm before the band strikes up at 8pm.

There is a licensed bar and dance floor.

Tickets are priced £12, including a pie and peas supper and a free prize draw.
