Next Public Concerts ...

13th April 2020 >> All the band's upcoming concerts are cancelled, until further notice, due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We trust you're all safe & well, during this difficult time.

Our sold-out public concert at Jennett's Park on 21st March 2020 hung in the balance until one week before the event. But it then became clear there was no option but to cancel. Everyone was notified, and every ticket was immediately refunded.

The South Hill Park Food & Music Festival on 6th/7th June 2020 has now been cancelled. We had a couple of other private events also cancelled.

The band is due to play at Warfield Park on Saturday 1st August 2020. At present, this event remains scheduled to go ahead.

The band hopes to play at both South Hill Park Arts Centre in Bracknell, and Jennett's Park Community Centre in Bracknell, sometime between September & December. More details in due course.

As always, please phone 07739-314261 any time, or email davidbennett470@gmail.com

Thank you, and best wishes.

About the Band

We are The Supertonics Big Band, a 17-piece big band, based in Bracknell, Berkshire.

 

We play a mixture of traditional big band swing music, from the likes of Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman etc - other popular jazz standards arranged for big band - music from musicals & the movies, and even some rock & roll and other "modern" tunes.

We rehearse every Wednesday evening, at Binfield Primary School, just outside Bracknell - we're always looking for more players & guests - phone or email any time.

We play public concerts in Bracknell six times a year, either South Hill Park Arts Centre, or Jennett's Park Community Centre. Tickets always sell out fast as we have a strong following.
