Take2 Big Band

The Take 2 Big Band is an 18 strong group of musicians playing a wide range of music varying from the old standards of Glen Miller, the more recent music of Maynard Ferguson and up to modern day music from the likes of Michael Bublé. The band comprises four trombones, four trumpets, five saxophones, keyboards, bass, drums and rhythm guitar and plays in and around the Barnsley and Sheffield area.


Available for bookings, the band currently performs at both private and public functions. See the ‘Contact Us’ link for details of how to book us or obtain more information. Costs vary depending on whereabouts the engagement is, the day of the week and amount of notice but we are very reasonable !!


See both our original CD “Every Little Beat Helps” and our latest CD “Home” – The HOME album by the Take2 Big Band is aptly named, as each and every part of every song and instrumental number was recorded at HOME. Throughout the infamous 2020/2021 LOCKDOWN the Take2 Big Band recorded 11 tracks, captured here on CD for your entertainment. Enjoy!

“Every Little Beat Helps” was recorded by largely the same band but eight years prior and contains some big band greats on there including Ev’ry Little Beat Helps and Maynard Ferguson’s version of Macarthur Park to name a couple.

CDs / USB sticks are £8 each or both for £14 (Plus P&P)
