Alex Mendham & His Orchestra:

10:45 - 11:30pm
Formed in 2010 under the direction of Alex Mendham, the orchestra authentically performs and records period dance music from the 1920s and 30s.
The passion the orchestra has for this music is what keeps them together. No corner is cut when it comes to preserving the music. From their vintage instruments to the pomade on their hair, no detail is overlooked. The orchestra also prides itself on its library of music. Thousands of rare dance band arrangements from the period. All of these things are indispensable tools of the trade.
