About Us

The Dave Hankin Big Band in Full Swing

Playing to packed-out theatre audiences, The Dave Hankin Big Band has risen to become the South West's premier Jazz Orchestra. Featuring high-quality musicianship, and performing a diverse repertoire from Glenn Miller to Maynard Ferguson - all of Dave's very own arrangements - including themed concerts celebrating the Magic of the Movies, Frank Sinatra and Michael Buble. The Dave Hankin Big Band is a feast for music lovers.

The Dave Hankin Band was formed in November 2007 and began regularly meeting at rehearsals to work on Dave's library of personally-crafted arrangements. The full-size, 17 piece line-up, plus the captivating vocals of Bern Stewart, were soon branching out from the local venues and jazz clubs, and began performing at festivals such as the Looe Festival, The Dart Music Festival, and the Boringdon Hotel Jazz and Ale Festival.

Along the way, the band have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in British jazz, with the likes of Gordon Campbell (trombone), Bruce Adams (trumpet) and Alan Barnes (saxophone) joining them for special concerts.

In 2015, Dave put together a programme of music to present "Frank Sinatra - The Centennial Celebration". The success of this show, with standing ovations and rave reviews, propelled the band into the production of further themed shows in subsequent years: "The Magic of Michael Buble" and "The Magic of Glenn Miller", each meeting with similar results.
