How It All Started

The band's Musical Director Paul Burch has put together a big band that creates the same kind of energy, excitement and style of the greatest big band of the past era. Born of the love of Big Band Jazz, sax player Paul Burch began searching for an ensemble of musicians to create a fantastic new big band. During the search he called upon musicians and friends who had played together from his time playing with The Coldstream Guards and playing with bands on-board luxury cruise liners.

Paul has hand picked musicians with impeccable reputations and experience. The band members have performed with some of the biggest names in the music business and have played in many West End Musicals. After assembling the musicians and taking it name from the London street that has been the heart of British music scene, The Denmark Street Big Band was born.
