25th August 2016 sees the beautiful and unique surroundings of Wilton’s Music Hall in East London transformed in to a glamorous pre-war era dance, led by consummate gypsy-jazz guitarist and big band leader Benoit Viellefon. In an enchanting display of vintage virtuosity, Viellefon and his orchestra serve swing, song, and style to create a transporting atmosphere of classic Gallic charm.
Voted best band to dance to at Twinwood Festival 2015, Benoit Viellefon & His Orchestra sweep you away to a bygone age of elegance, evoking the golden era of music between the roaring 1920's-1940’s and Big Band Jazz. Consisting of upbeat, quirky, and loving renditions of jazz classics interspersed with some fantastic original compositions, Viellefon and his dynamic 7-piece orchestra stage a spectacular show not to be missed.
Reminiscent of the sounds of Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Fats Waller, Al Bowlly and Charles Trenet, Viellefon’s orchestra is one of the leading bands on the UK’s swing scene. Having captivated audiences and keeping them on their feet at countless vintage festivals and residencies at London’s top nostalgic venues, as well as appearing on national television and radio, Benoit Viellefon and his orchestra bring the romance of this golden era into the 21st century and one of London’s most unique and characterful venues.
Wilton’s Music Hall is a gem in the heart of East London and the oldest grand music hall in the world. The Grade 2 Star listed building recently completed a 4 year capital project with support from Heritage Lottery Fund and numerous trusts and individuals, reinvigorating the building and making it the perfect space to compliment a show of this nature. Join some of London’s coolest and quirkiest as they dance the night away in style.
