Saturday 15.00 (Main Stage)

The Bob Cutting Big Band, formerly known as the Harold Elmey Big Band is Oxford’s longest established Big Band. We’re led by our musical director and local big band legend, Bob Cutting.

The band features the standard line-up of trumpets, trombones, saxophones and rhythm. Joined by one or more of our amazing singers, Karen Wymbs, Marion Nicolosi and Ella Thompson. Our repertoire consists mainly of standard big band arrangements. It includes numbers from such well known bands as Count Basie, Ted Heath and Glen Miller, as well as also those of more recent composers and arrangers.
