Fans of Don Lusher will know that he was recently appointed an OBE for his lifelong service to music and is regarded as one of the greatest trombone players in the world.
Born in Peterborough, he started playing the trombone when he was six years old and has played with the bands of Joe Daniels, Lou Preager, Maurice Winnick, Geraldo and eventually Ted Heath.
The first half of the concert at the Princes Hall is guaranteed to be non-stop jazz music and will feature the Lusher band playing a selection of compositions associated with such giants as Buddy Rich, Stan Kenton and Duke Ellington, all of which have become big band classics over the years.
The second part of the programme will feature a segment dedicated to the music of Ted Heath, using the original arrangements as they were performed by Britain’s greatest swing band.
Another bonus for the evening will be the band’s vocalist Sheila Southern, who is one of the country’s top female singers.
Don’t miss what is sure to be an amazing evening of music and nostalgia in Aldershot.
Tickets are priced £13.50 and £12.50 and are available from the box office on 01252 329155.
