Pasadena’s rooftop recipe for success keeps on delivering

IT’S 1969 and along with man taking his first steps on the moon the Pasadena Roof Orchestra gets its licence to swing when more than 1,000 original dance band arrangements are discovered in an attic by founder member John Arthy.

More than 40 years on from that incredible find the orchestra’s repertoire has been shaken again – not stirred.

The best 1920’s and ‘30’s tunes are the simple ingredients for that cocktail.

So sit back and take a sip of the orchestra’s new programme Licence to Swing.

The Pasadena Roof Orchestra will perform at the Elgiva theatre in Chesham on Friday, March 30 at 8pm.
