Live on Stage

Pasadena Roof Orchestra

It’s hard to believe, but the Pasadena Roof Orchestra are celebrating 55 years of touring and playing live music from the 1920s and 1930s. The recipe for their longevity is quite simple … staying true to the original sounds that were produced nightly by the resident bands in some of the first-class hotels pre-war, and in the jazz clubs of New York and beyond.

Pasadena’s live show features lovingly recreated orchestrations of melodies from the Great American Songbook composers such as Irving Berlin and George Gershwin. Also represented are hot tunes from the likes of Duke Ellington and Fletcher Henderson plus classic British dance band arrangements from Ray Noble and Lew Stone. Hosted with humour by vocalist and band leader Duncan Galloway, who is never short of an anecdote or two!
