The Mini Big Band

The Mini Big Band are the UK’s best and most sought after and highly acclaimed modern swing band with an uncompromising reputation for providing the highest quality live music at events all over the UK, Europe and further afield.

Created by twin brothers Chris and Jon Hibbard in 2007 the band has developed into UK’s leading modern big band with a wealth of professional engagement experience. The brothers have drawn on their connections as musicians to bring together some of the UK’s finest professional musicians and new breaking talent whose studio and live experience spans from performing on all over the World with some incredible shows and artists including Jamiroquai, Roy Wood, Corrine Baily Rae, Mark Ronson, and many more. With all music arranged specifically for our powerful 6 piece horn section and swingiest of swingin’ rhythm sections, that classic full ‘big band swing sound’ has never been so closely recreated by a smaller theatre band.

A penchant for big band swing, sharp suits and vintage instruments and record collections that would put most to shame - this band take great pleasure and enjoyment in recreating the big band music of their musical heroes and industry legends.
