The Two rivers swing band

 

The Swing Band is directed by the trumpet player and jazz arranger Trevor Vincent. It plays classic big band and jazz numbers along with some Latin and Rock ’n Roll. Many of these are Trevor's own arrangements for the Band. The Swing Band holds at least two dances each year, which are the highlight of its calendar. It also plays on local bandstands, at concerts, festivals and other community events.
