Debbie Curtis

The Debbie Curtis Radio Big Band is the UK's most exciting professional Big Band for shows, concerts, private or commercial parties and functions, concerts, dances, corporate events, university balls, weddings, black tie affairs, festivals, cruises, tv and radio, award ceremonies etc. Quality Guest Stars and the band's unique 'Hobsons Choice' Re-enactors and Dancers' (if required) turn a concert into a show!

Using only the best musicians, the band has performed at prestigious venues such as The London Palladium, Her Majesty's, The London Savoy & The Cafe Royal. Our musicians have also performed with or alongside some of the biggest names in show business such as Paul McCartney, Shirley Bassey, Jamiroqui and Robbie Williams, to name but a few!
All are fully professional, no part timers or amateurs.

First established in 1972 by Eddie Curtis, the band can cover the music of all the Big Bands, many era's and many styles can be catered for. The band music library has over 10,000 music arrangements and continues to grow! Special requests outside of the library content can also be obtained especially for an event.

Debbie is Eddie's daughter, she is the band leader and vocalist, an accomplished musician/performer she is also an expert in Big Band music and the history that surrounds it. Debbie has a real passion for the music she grew up with and is also unique as the only fully professional female Big Band leader in the UK!

An array of Guest Stars are also available to appear with the band!

The DCRBB has their own PA Sound System, so no need to hire one!

Should you book the band, the standard package would include Debbie Curtis, 16 musicians, PA System & Sound Engineer.

You might also want to consider, at additional fees, 'Hobsons Choice Re-Enactors and Dancers', including the immensely popular 'Viv The Spiv' and Sergeant Brighton. We also have Vintage Vehicles available. Hobsons choice can also provide 'Meet & Greet' services, adding a personal touch to your event.

Patrick Lunt, former BBC Radio 2 Broadcaster for over 20 years is a regular addition to the stage when a client requires a presenter, he is also an excellent 'After Dinner' speaker.

Usual performances are 2 hours long with a break after the first hour, this can of course be tailored to suit particular requirements. We can also provide, free of charge, additional music on CD for background or dancing, or with a trio of musicians at a negotiable rate. A number of top 'Swing DJ's' are also available.

For commercial bookings, we will provide  a reasonable amount of promotional material such as brochures and CD's for publicity etc. We have our own ISDN line for direct linking up to radio stations for promotional interviews with Debbie. We can also email out event details to all our newsletter subscribers, as well as advertising it on the band website.

A PR promotion on Debbie and the band reached around 60 million people across Europe by way of national and local radio, newspapers, magazines and online news resources and the popularity of the band continues to grow!

You will find the Debbie Curtis office friendly and helpful, they will give you all the assistance they can to ensure your event is a success and we pride ourselves on our efficiency to deliver the highest quality of service to the customer.
