The Horace Stone Dance Orchestra

History

The band was formed in the middle 1970s as the INGRAVE BIG BAND, but at the request of a promoter was changed later to THE HORACE STONE DANCE ORCHESTRA.. We were fortunate to be able to use St. Nicholas Church Hall in Ingrave for regular Thursday rehearsals, hence the original name.

Once we began performing in public for dances and concerts we gained the interest of experienced musicians and it was not long before we completed our line-up of piano, bass drums guitar, four trumpets, four trombones and five saxophones, a musical director and singers.

If you should want to book the Orchestra or a small combination, find out when we are going to be playing near you, or have any other queries about us, please either call Horace Stone on 01277 810785 or else send us an email.

Many thanks for coming to our website, and we look forward to playing for you soon!
