Derry’s biggest live band “The Bleu Note Big Band” will be returning to The City Hotel Corinthian Ballroom on Saturday, February 15 with all the popular sounds of Glenn Miller, Frank Sinatra, and Michael Buble to name but a few.
The Bleu Note Big Band is fronted by local recording artist Andrew Monk who is well known to the music scene in Derry and has performed for the past 10 years in the City Of Derry Jazz Festival. He will be joined on stage by music guru, Joe Quigley as musical director and lead guitar, Jim Whiteside on drums, Philip Wallace on percussion, Ronan O’Callaghan on strings and synth, Derrick Collins on piano, Rohan Armstrong on bass, The Campbell sisters on vocals, Carol Quigley on front vocals.
The 17-piece band, when last performing in the City Hotel brought the audience to a standing ovation when they performed their rendition of The River Dance which no doubt will be performed again on the 15th.
The Bleu Note Big Band last appeared in The City Hotel two years ago to a full capacity house of ballroom dance enthusiasts, and today’s younger swing music fans who have embraced the classics made famous again, by the likes of today’s Michael Buble and Robbie Williams.
A Dean Martin tribute act will be making his first appearance in the city in a cabaret spot on the same the night. This will be the talented Adrian Cullen from Sligo who has performed for the past ten years in the music scene in the south of Ireland and around the world on cruise ships.
