The Mini Big Band is run by twin brothers Chris and Jon Hibbard (pictured above) who provide the highest quality musical entertainment for any wedding, corporate or private event. The Mini Big Bands show is full of classic swing band and rat pack style numbers; from some classic Sinatra, Dean Martin and Bobby Darin to the more modern swing band classics of Michael Bubble, Robbie Williams and Harry Connick Jnr. We also pride our selves on our modern homage to swing; performing some more popular, modern numbers from artists such as Oasis, Radiohead and Take That in our own unique classic swing sound.
As a band we pride ourselves on our professionalism and understand how important your event is. Our flexible style and experience will ensure that your event runs the way you want, without any stress.
The Band is made up from some of the finest musicians in the UK whose studio and live experience spans from performing all over the UK, Europe and the World. The members of the band have graced the stages at some of the finest concert venues around and with some of the finest shows and bands, ranging from Jamiroqui to The X Factor.
All of The Mini Big Bands music has been specially arranged for the 10 piece band to ensure we get that classic “big band swing sound”, a sound that smaller bands simply can not achieve.
Award Stings/Play ons
Our specially designed “play-ons” or “stings” can really put the icing on the cake for any awards evening or corporate event. A short hit of that classic big band swing sound as people make their way to the stage gives a real touch of class and excitement to your evening, whilst helping to create and build a fantastic atmosphere for the award winners and guests alike.
Once booked for an event The Mini Big Band can also provide extra entertainment for your day. This can range from a solo pianist to a Jazz quintet for your arrival drinks or as background music for your meal. This can really help to create an amazing atmosphere at your event, whilst giving people a taster of what is to come later with The Mini Big Bands main set.
