A professional trumpet player who has been entertaining audiences worldwide for nearly 40 years has finally achieved his ambition to have his own 18 piece swing band and he is bringing them to the Riverhead Theatre in Louth on June 5 and 6.

Steve Walker, aka ‘The Man With The Golden Trumpet’ has taken over Paula Baldwin’s Big Swing Band and relaunched it with a powerhouse line-up and an exciting programme of tunes.

The concert will include big band hits by legendary bandleaders like Count Basie, Charlie Barnet, Duke Ellington, Gene Krupa, Tommy Dorsey, Stan Kenton and, of course, Glenn Miller.

After playing on the BBC Proms in the Park for an audience of 45,000, he is hoping to fill the 200 plus Riverhead Theatre two nights running. To book seats call 01507 600350 (Monday-Saturday, 10am–1pm) or call in at the theatre.
