About the event

Hills Big Band bring their style and groove to any occasion. Swing doesn’t entirely describe the Hills Big Band. Yes, they present the familiar Count Basie and Glenn Miller numbers and their two stunning vocalists skilfully cover the work of Frank Sinatra and Billie Holiday. And yet… the Hills Big Band leave no stone unturned, bringing you great arrangements of numbers by the likes of The Beatles, Michael Bublé, Earth Wind and Fire, Duke Ellington, Bon Jovi, Steely Dan, Van Morrison, Louis Prima, Quincy Jones and James Morrison. From their humble beginnings in the Perth Hills, they have grown to handle major gigs, for example filling the Ellington Jazz Club many times and featuring in the Live at the Northbridge Piazza series in 2012 and 2014.

Led by Musical Director Tom Salleo, future star trombonist/pianist and arranger, the members of  the band are a disparate bunch from the Perth Hills and beyond. The players include professional musicians, teachers, ex-soldiers, university students, business people and retirees; all have a common interest in preserving and presenting all that’s best in big band music.
