Memphis Belle Swing Orchestra

Memphis Belle Swing Orchestra

No other British orchestra can boast that their first performance was backing the legendary singing star Harry Connick Jnr! Such is the heritage of the world famous Memphis Belle Swing Orchestra, which was formed in 1989 especially for the David Puttnam movie Memphis Belle.

Graham (back row, 4th from left) still plays with the band regularly along with Musical Director Greg Francis.
