  • male and female vocalists

About Glevum Big Band

We love to play concerts for charities and good causes in and around Gloucestershire. Hiring a five piece band for a wedding or event can cost around £1,000. Hiring a big band of 18 musicians could easily cost much more.

We appreciate that this is out of the reach of many people and most small charities. GBB is run as a non profit organisation - please contact us and we can provide a quote for your private party or event.

If you are a local charity we may be able to play for a token amount to cover our costs or even for free on some occasions, as we like to support our local community. Get in touch and we will see what we can do.

If you can recruit an audience we can bring the Big Band sound!
