Big Band music is the Best Music. Billions of years ago a supernova exploded across the galaxy, spreading elementary particles across space. The power of the cosmos formed copper and zinc into shiny, powerful saxes, trombones and trumpets. Carbon, oxygen and nitrogen self-organised into dedicated musicians, creating and practicing riffs and coming together with awesome big band arrangements to get your toes tapping and ears flapping. This powerful, universal life force exploded into Kent in late 2021, manifesting as the Steve Nathan Big Band. Musicians self-organised, drawn to recreate this finest form of music using arrangements from the 1940’s to the present day.
