WHAT IS THE
LANGSETT DANCE ORCHESTRA?
Formed in 1985 by the legendary band leader Dennis Goodison, the Orchestra began life as a junior Dance Band, rehearsing at the old Langsett Music Centre. It quickly took on a life of its own, providing the soundtrack to many a tea dance across the region.
As the musicians have grown up (nearly all were youth members), so has the band's musical taste and we now have over 200 tunes in our library!
We take pride in keeping the dance-band traditions alive, playing a wide range of material from Glen Miller and Benny Goodman through to Stevie Wonder, Tower of Power, Earth Wind & Fire and Nirvana.
We host regular informal concerts for our friends and fans (see the live board) and can also be booked for events, festivals and private parties.
Find us and friend us on Facebook!
