Canterbury Festival

The KD Dance Orchestra is a tremendous 9 piece party band featuring a full horn section alongside the smoothest vocals. Their music ranges from form the golden era of big band right through to the choicest boogielicious soul. Jazz flights are standard but the smooth vocals from Peter Cook and driving diva anthems from Bennett elevate this fun-loving band to the legendary wonderful party darling status they richly deserve.

The KD Dance Orchestra are stepping off the corporate event circuit for this rare opportunity to see them live. 

Band leader Ian Swatman :  Ian Swatman is a seasoned Director of Music, Teacher conductor and Bandleader. KD Dance Orchestra combines his love of that big band sound and a driving groovy beat.
