Since 1969 the Pasadena Roof Orchestra has been faithfully re-creating the glories of popular music from the 1920′s and 1930′s.
The fun-packed show features timeless classics from the great American song book – those wonderful tunes that miraculously lifted peoples spirits during the depression era, and which made household names of singers such as Bing Crosby, Al Bowlly, and Fred Astaire. The repertoire includes songs from Irving Berlin that are providing the delightful escapism for musical treats today such as the hit show Top Hat.
The musicians master the arrangements and sound of the fabled American orchestras such as Duke Ellington and Fletcher Henderson, while also paying tribute to the great British dance Bands like Ray Noble or Ambrose.
Presenting the show, and putting on the top hat white tie and tails, is the suave singer and band leader, Duncan Galloway. So pack up your troubles, come on get happy, and experience an evening of superlative live music, with more than a dash of English wit and humour.
