The Managers of the Month

The Managers

Fancy spending a Sunday afternoon listening to one of the best big bands Britain has to offer?

On Sunday June 29, the 19-piece Bolton-based big band The Managers visit The Continental in Preston for a sesion of driving jazz, pop and even rock.

Since 2006, The Managers have pursued the goal of bringing the best of big band and jazz to the North West of England.

Expect no soppy nostalgic meander down Memory Lane from this band.

The Managers play the music of Stan Kenton, Buddy Rich, Duke Ellington, Les Brown, Maynard Ferguson, Frank Sinatra and more with energy and verve.

Founded and led by twins Ben (piano) and Jay Shepherd (lead trumpet), The Managers are mainly young musicians from around the region, which possibly explains the extra energy they bring to each performance.

Tickets £8 or £6 concs (under 11s free) available online from See Tickets, WeGotTickets & Skiddle or in person from The Continental (01772 499 425) or Preston Visitor Information (01772 253 731).
