THE PACIFIC PALM COURT ORCHESTRA
A jolly group of professional musicians, presenting music with good “tunes” from lots of musical eras and styles. Formed in 2011, the Pacific Palm Court Orchestra has played at concerts, high teas, parties, in fact wherever there is elegant conversation to be had.
Palm court music is light-hearted entertainment and, like the teas served in those grand hotels, is a curious blend of British and European flavours.

SAX BLUE – Saxophone Quartet
SAX BLUE is an experienced saxophone group playing a broad range of music from classical transcriptions to jazz tunes and novelty numbers. The group has been blowing over a period of 12 years and produces a creamy but punchy blend of sounds with Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Baritone. The quartet’s repertoire includes baroque and romantic arrangements, jazz standards such as Blue Monk, Body and Soul, Don’t Get Around Much Anymore, Good Bait and Down By the Riverside, and special tunes like Tiger Rag and Bohemian Rhapsody.
Sax Blue like to honour the early 20th Century saxophone ensembles, such as the Brown Brothers.
The members of the group are Craig Parish (Soprano/Alto saxes), Cameron Harker (Alto), Chris Higgins (Tenor), Rod Barnes (Baritone). All are members of the exciting Dungeon Big Band.
Sax Blue has played many concerts over the years, including support for the internationally-known Dutch Swing College Band.
