Sunday Brunch Concert

Celebrating the Stan Kenton-Ted Heath Band Exchange of 1956

For many years American bands were restricted from playing engagements in Great Britain. Finally in 1956 there was an agreement that American bands could perform as long as a British band was able to perform in American to reciprocate. This historic exchange of bands featured Stan Kenton's Orchestra performing in Great Britain with Ted Heath's Orchestra booked for a U.S tour. That 1956 exchange opened the door for a wave of others that followed. This special Sunday Brunch features two full bands performing music played during the 1956 tours.
