ON Friday, November 30, Chorley Community Centre is hosting a performance by Chorley’s Starlight Swing Orchestra.

They will be re-creating the authentic swing sound from both sides of the Atlantic.

The Starlight Swing Orchestra was formed in March 2004 by four like-minded musicians who wanted to establish an authentic swing sound band in their local town of Chorley.

They comprise five saxes, three trumpets, two trombones, bass, guitar, piano, drums and a featured male or female vocalist.

Of course all bands need a band leader and that accolade goes to Ian Hunter, who has forged his love of swing music into the very heart of the band.

Chorley Community Centre is swiftly gaining a reputation as a venue for live music performances with a touch of nostalgia.

Tickets are available from Town and Village Estate Agents in Fazakerley Street or by ringing Cathy 01257 410297.

They’re a snip at £6 each.

There’s a licensed bar and doors open at 7pm for an 8pm start.

All proceeds to the group’s drama group for young people with learning difficulties.
