The Great Yorkshire Dance Orchestra
The Great Yorkshire Dance Orchestra is an authentic 1920s jazz band, whose entire repertoire consists of transcriptions of original scores and recordings from the art deco era. Playing on vintage instruments of the time, this 12-piece ensemble takes a step back to an age where dance halls brimmed with luxury and glamour, and the celebrities were the stars of the silver screen.
