There is now less than one month to go before Pete Long and his 'Goodmen' take to the stage in a remarkable reenactment of Benny Goodman's Legendary Jazz Concert at the Carnegie Hall in 1938.

Bandleader and clarinettist Pete Long (Ronnie Scott’s Big Band, Echoes of Ellington and ex-sax star of Jools Holland’s Rhythm and Blues Orchestra) presents a superlative recreation of one of the greatest concerts in jazz history. Benny’s line up that night included stars such as trumpeters Harry James and Ziggy Elman, drummer Gene Krupa and pianist Jess Stacey.

Of course you don't have to have know about Benny Goodman to enjoy the evening; the energy and musicianship from Pete and his fellows will inspire even non-musicians! Pete Long and his musicians have gone to great lengths to re-create this concert, including original arrangements, period instruments and even the stage seating plan. The result is an evening of fabulous music that swings like crazy, it’s a great night out not to be missed! 

The concert takes place in the Queen's Hall at Queen's College, Taunton from 7.30pm. Tickets cost £15 for adults, and £10 for concessions (students, OAPs etc.).
