The Essential Sounds Big Band is delighted to be returning after a very successful first year. The band consists of 22 experienced musicians and Vocalists that cover a large repertoire of popular music which include traditional big band music from the Glenn Miller era but more extensively general popular music up to the present day. This year, they will be joined by The Three Chordettes, a female vocal trio who specialise in 1940s swing.

The Three Chordettes – Lisa Roberts, Molly Scurrell and Sarah Hitchcock – first performed with Essential Sounds last July for an open-air band concert and are delighted to be joining them on stage at this year’s Felixstowe carnival.  The band will conclude its performance with a Last night of the Proms theme incorporating the traditional songs such as Land of Hope and Glory,  Rule Britannia and There’ll Always be an England for audience participation and hopefully plenty of flag waving. The band has rapidly become known for its entertainment value in large open-air environments not only for the quality of the music produced but also for the audience friendly approach that produces a relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere.

Join us on Friday 27th July at the Beachside Events Area from 7pm!
