Hello my name is Gordon Grant I am the Musical Director of the Fanfare Big Band.

The band was formed by myself in 1983. Shortly afterwards I was asked to take over as
Musical Director of the Radio Leicester Big Band. The two bands became one until I moved
to Lincolnshire.


The band was reformed by myself in 2003. We are playing to wider audiences as The Fanfare Big Band can cater for most occasions. I am very proud to have a band of wonderful dedicated musicians plus my vocalist Joanne Shields. She is a much sought after cabaret act, which has taken her all over the world including performances with Tom O' Connor and Gerard Kenny. Joanne has also enjoyed appearing in many musical productions, taking the lead in "Hello Dolly" and "Dames Of The Sea".

I have recently published my autobiography called 'So you want to be a Musician?', which is available to purchase at our gigs and online here.
