Notes for the band:

Obviously, it's a new line-up under the Swing Orchestra banner, but I have every confidence in the new team. The new DYSO is already sounding good, so with continued commitment, I'm convinced that we'll be buzzing by the time we reach May. I am looking forward to returning to Wath on Bank Holiday Monday.
