SJO Singer Celebrates 80th Birthday!

Steve Bailey --the crooner who has fronted the SJO Big Band (Surrey Jazz Orchestra ) for well over 40 years celebrates his 80th birthday this month - and he still performs with great energy and dynamism!

On Tuesday 26th March he will again be entertaining a packed crowd at the Jacobs Well Village Hall with his mix of Frank Sinatra/Bobby Darrin etc style songs.

The SJO is Surrey's longest surviving big band, playing music of the big band era -- from Glenn Miller , Count Basie, Duke Ellington etc --this terrific band has been together for the best part of 50 years playing great swing and jazz tunes - that suits all ages.

The SJO Big Band holds concerts every last Tuesday of the month at the Jacobs Well Village Hall --and on 26th March the concert is in support of the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation who exist to raise vital funds supporting front line conservation projects which help secure a future for wildlife in their natural habitat.

Support both Steve Bailey and this excellent charity by attending on March 26th. For more information contact Peter Deane -07770 882855 or or see the website
