What do people say about Barisons Swing Band?

"....the real star is the music itself and the live 13-piece band led by Brian Hill. Hill exquisitely reconstructs the sounds and rhythms of each of the great bands from the excitement of Benny Goodman's Sing Sing Sing to the sophisticated swell of Glen Miller's Moonlight Serenade making this a reminder of the intoxicating power of a live dance orchestra."

"This band, with swinging rhythms and lush orchestrations, is polished and tight, delivering a near faultless set list of some of the best of the swing era. Hill and his men do a first class job of recreating the toe-tapping tunes of the great bands."

"Big Band music s one of my favourite styles and Brian Hill and Barisons Swing Band ticks all the boxes. There are fantastic tunes from the best band leaders, including Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey and of course, Duke Ellington. They are all delivered with great style and impact, and Andy Abraham's voice is terrific."
