Piccadilly Dance Orchestra Program

The Barn Concerts Bedfordshire

Michael Law’s Piccadilly Dance Orchestra was born from a chance event in 1968! Michael was given a wind-up gramophone and a pile of 78rpm records – and he promptly fell in love with the sounds of the 1920s and 30s dance bands and variety artists such as Ambrose, Ray Noble, Al Bowlly, Frances Day, ‘Hutch’, Turner Layton and many more. Michael founded his orchestra in 1988 and joined by his partner Alan Bennett-Law in 1992, the orchestra went from strength to strength, enjoying residencies at London's Ritz and Savoy Hotels and recording seven CDs.

At The Savoy, The PDO were the last to perform on the legendary stage where so many great bands of the past had performed, including Carroll Gibbons and the Savoy Hotel Orpheans, Geraldo, Fred Elizalde and Debroy Somers.

Acclaimed worldwide for their spirited recreations of the music of the British Dance Bands, Michael and the PDO were especially chosen for BBC 4's highly successful Len Goodman's Dancing Feet and a sequel, Len Goodman's Dance Band Days - and following their concert at John Dankworth and Cleo Laine's Wavendon theatre: "this was probably the most entertaining evening I can remember...the orchestra is really superb".
