The Prime Time Big Band

Recently nominated as London’s “Jazz Instrumental Group” (Jack Richardson London Music Awards), George Laidlaw’s Prime Time Big Band has been thrilling London and area audiences with their delightful mix of music since 2002. This 18-piece group is known for its versatility, performing everything from authentic swing era dance tunes to clever modern arrangements. Prime Time performs three times a year at the acclaimed Aeolian Hall in London, and at many public, private and corporate functions throughout the year. Contact us for details of performing for you.

Prime Time has released two CDs and have copies available for purchase at our events.

We are pleased to have Gina Farrugia, WINNER of the 2017 JRLMA "Jazz Vocal" category, as our featured vocalist.
