Thornbury Swing Band - Live!

Creating professional videos and audios costs money. We aim to keep our costs to a minimum so that we have more to donate to charity. The short video clip here is one recorded live by an audience member. We hope it gives just a taste of the band live and that you'll enjoy it too.

making music for good causes

None of the band is paid for playing. We give our time and enthusiasm to raise money for charity.

After covering our running costs (insurance, music, etc), all money raised by the band is donated to good causes in the local area. 

Since 2008 we have donated many thousand of pounds to local causes.
