The SFORZANDO STAGE BAND was a fifteen piece big band formed in 1991. All of its musicians were semi- professionals who had been playing for a number of years. The band had a young, fresh and big exciting sound that had an exciting style of its own.
Sforzando’s musical director, LES BRUCE, is a clarinet player at heart, who learned to play the saxophone whiilst studying for a BA (Hons) in music. Since then he has performed with a number of big bands, including the RON YOUNG DANCE ORCHESTRA and MIDWEST BIG BAND, as well as his own LES BRUCE BIG BAND, which is still performing.
KERRY SMALLMAN was the most talented singer to join SFORZANDO, with a wealth of musical experience gained from 10 years of singing for Stagestruck.
