About Cornish Roots

Big band
Helston
Public liability insurance of £1 million
Cornish Roots is a band made up from 20 local professional musicians that love to play big band music.

Having started out in local bands such as Helston School Jazz Orchestra and the Cornwall Youth Jazz orchestra, we all share the same passion for music. Our aim is to help local charities, and provide a top quality band for gigs and functions. We can play in any style from themed movie nights and 60’s swing evenings to strictly come dancing style parties. Our repertoire includes popular pieces such as Michael Buble’s Everything, James Bond’s Live and Let Die, Grease megamix, Glen Miller’s In the mood, as well as big band classics from the like of Buddy Rich, Bob Mintzer and Maynard Ferguson.
