Trevor Vincent
 - Musical Director Two Rivers Swing Band

Trevor started playing trumpet and arranging at school and enrolled on the Jazz & Light Music Course at the Leeds Music Centre (now Leeds Conservatoire). Having obtained his diploma, he moved to London where he worked for many famous bandleaders of the time including Ken Macintosh, Ray McVay, Joe Loss, Syd Lawrence, Tony Evans & Johnny Howard. He also played in backing bands for Dame Shirley Bassey, Dame Vera Lynn, Cilla Black, Max Bygraves, Bruce Forsythe, The Three Degrees & The Drifters and played for 9 months on the QE2, including her first World Cruise.
As performing work grew gradually less, he returned north to teach Jazz Arranging & Composition at Leeds College of Music on the BA (Hons) Jazz Studies Course and obtained a Master’s Degree from the University of Leeds. He has played for many memorable productions at the Alhambra Theatre Bradford and the Grand Theatre Leeds, and at many local venues including Yeadon, Guiseley, Keighley & Ilkley. He continues to play regularly in local big bands & small jazz groups. 

Trevor says "If you are interested in joining a big band), I couldn’t recommend <Two Rivers> highly enough, not only for the social and educational side, but also because they make a great sound…..a pleasure to stand up in front of. And if you are looking for a band to play at a function, I’m sure you will not be disappointed."
