     Band In Residence at St Marys

    Commencing January 2017 St Mary’s will welcome its very own “Band in Residence”.

    Sweet Rhythm Big Band are a Sale based 15 piece big band playing music which ranges from the “Strictly Ballroom” favourites through Glenn Miller classics, Films and Broadway Shows to recent hits.  By coincidence, their Bass player is Steve Golding, the son of Norman & Sheila Golding and Allison Wood’s brother, who we are delighted to welcome back to St Mary’s.

    The band has been together for over twenty-five years and has performed at weddings and other celebrations throughout Greater Manchester including Cloisters Bolton, The Concorde Hangar, The Hilton Manchester Deansgate, Egerton House Hotel, Etrop Grange, Mere Court Hotel, Mottram Hall, Northop Hall, Old Trafford Football Ground, The Palace Hotel Manchester and Rochdale Town Hall.

    As our “Band in Residence” Sweet Rhythm will rehearse in the Main Church most Friday evenings and will perform a couple of concerts at St Mary’s each year plus supporting Local Community Events.  They will also help support the young people of the church musically.

    The band is a not-for-profit organisation and any surplus remaining after covering their expenses is donated to charity.

    The band is currently looking for Trombone Players, do you know of any ?
