The Sweet Blossom BigBand is a group of musicians from Geldermalsen (the centre of the Netherlands). A number of “old hands” in the music world, most of them born on stage, play enthusiastically together with a number of neighbouring musicians living in the area, ranging over 50 years in age from the youngest to the oldest.

The band plays mainly “swing ” numbers from the 40’s and 50’s, mostly in the style used by Glenn Miller and Duke Ellington; but they certainly don’t hesitate to play other styles! With “Bossa Nova’s ” and “Samba’s ” they entice audiences to get up and dance. As well as other styles of well-known dance numbers, such as “ In the Mood ”, ballads as: “Georgia on my mind ”, or favourites as “I’m getting sentimental over you ”, this group plays with just as much enthusiasm and skill.

In 2001 the band celebrated its 10-year anniversary at the “ Wyenburg castle ” in Echteld, when with 4 other bands they played in a jazz festival. Attracting over 500 visitors it was a real happening, celebrating their jubilee. In March of the same year their first CD, entitled “Out of the Basement ” was presented. A splendid performance of 13 well-known numbers with a range of soloists can be heard on this CD. The second CD was produced in 2006 at the Power Sound Studios in Amsterdam.

The Sweet Blossom Orchestra gives many types of performances. These presentations are chosen from a wide repertoire and adjusted to various atmospheres and styles. Whether it is a stylish intimate dinner-dance, or a swinging jazz afternoon, a selected theme arrangement, or a production number, or anything requested, the Sweet Blossom Orchestra under the leadship of Teunis de Wit is just the band to take care of any request. A “ Big Band ” to give you an unforgettable evening! Because “SWING IS IN!”
