There's a definite feel of nostalgia in Saltdean thanks to the opening of retro shop, Sons of The Desert, in Longridge Avenue, and plans for the renovation of the 1930s Art Deco lido forging ahead.
To coincide with this, there is a call for big band/swing musicians to express interest in setting up a locally based community jazz orchestra
The aim would be for musicians of all abilities - subject to being able to read music and play to Grade 5 level or equivalent - to play music from the 30s, 40s and 50s.
Once proficient the band would be available for events to help raise money for charitable causes.
Apart from players, the new group would also require conductors and also anyone who can help with finding a suitable rehearsal venue, accounts, funding, general organisation and more.
