About us


Led by experienced Jazzer Paul Rigby, The Blackburn with Darwen Big Band is a modern youthful twist on the big band tradition. Aiming to bring the big band sound to the masses, with repertoire ranging from Miller to Mars… They’re a band for all ages!
The BwD Big Band is stuffed full of young talent, including a fantastic female vocalist.
We have a truly broad repertoire from swing/jazz through to latin/funk including some hits of recent years, so we cannot fail to please, and get the dance floor jiving.

The band is available to be engaged for festivals and private parties, for more information or if you would like to join our band, email info@bwdbigband.co.uk
