Village Events



The Band was started by two school teachers, Gary Wells  and Tom Forward, in 1996.
It has grown steadily since then to become the fine Band it is today.

It specialises in playing the original arrangements, when available, of Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Duke Ellington and various other big bands of the Swing Era.

Kevin Dunn, our Musical Director and drummer (& multi-instrumentalist!) is also an accomplished arranger and
writes for the Band.

Our aim is to continue playing the type of music that both we and our audiences enjoy.

Our repertoire is extensive and includes a wide variety of popular ballads, both traditional and modern

Members come from all over the Axe Valley and further afield - some from Lyme Regis, Sidmouth, Chard, Honiton and Seaton.

         "Piping Hot" are three friends (Michael, Maggie and Annette) who get together to play varied music ranging

          from well-known folk tunes to tuneful classics for special occasions, preferably for "good" causes.

          They play different "pipes" with keyboard accompaniment.
