Two legends of the Christchurch Big Band scene, Doug Kelly and Doug Caldwell, will be celebrated in a tribute concert to their music in the best way possible.

The Garden City Big Band will play original music and arrangements by the two Dougs from an era when swing music and big band jazz were celebrated on the airwaves and the dance halls of New Zealand.

Now both over 80 years old, Doug Kelly and Doug Caldwell, along with musical director Lana Law have worked with the Garden City Big Band to bring their music to life. Originals like 'Wakatipu Environs', 'Thanks Bill' and 'Douglas Delight' sit along tasty workings of well known songs 'Days of Wine and Roses','Scrapple from the Apple', and even 'Jeepers Creepers'.

Established Jazz Diva and Doug Kelly's granddaughter, Kate Taylor joins the band on vocals.
