The Barn Concerts Bedfordshire

Hotfoot from The Savoy, The Ritz and the Café de Paris, Michael Law’s Piccadilly Dance Orchestra bring you the music of a period when the public valued melody, lyrics and irresistibly foot-tapping music: the 1920s and 30s. From the 20s Charleston era through to the smoother and more sophisticated 30s, this music was created to lift people out of the doldrums, and now beguilingly evokes a happier, simpler time – perhaps this is why The PDO were especially chosen for BBC 4’s highly successful Len Goodman’s Dancing Feet and the sequel: Len Goodman’s Dance Band Days. The PDO was also chosen by Michael Parkinson for a gala Help For Heroes Ball - 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”.

Join us for an evening of fun - swing, jazz and song.

Owned and managed by Michael and Alan Bennett-Law, PDO is world famous for providing superb entertainment to a very high standard and much sought-after for concert and cabaret performances as well as for private parties and corporate events.

From the Charleston of the 1920s Gatsby era through the beautiful classic songs of the 1930s, to swing and jazz hits, Michael Law's Piccadilly Dance Orchestra play the greatest dance music and the best tunes of the Jazz Age. The PDO enjoyed residencies at London's Ritz and Savoy Hotels and have recorded six CDs. 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 it's 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". Catch The PDO in the Helen Mirren/Michael Caine movie Last Orders.

"Astonishingly good"  The Spectator
