CRGS Swing Band
Clitheroe Royal Grammar School Swing Band was formed in 2001 by Musical Director Nigel Spooner and has built up quite a reputation in the Ribble Valley and beyond for the standard and spirit of its playing.There were only seven players at its first rehearsal, but the band now comprises 18 players aged from 13 to 18, in the standard big band line-up of saxophones, trumpets, trombones and rhythm. The repertoire extends to over 100 numbers, ranging from the standards of the 1940s to Gershwin, Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Louis Prima arrangements, film themes and music from groups such as Weather Report and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. It has a busy schedule of 15 performances a year and has gone on four Summer tours since its foundation.
