The Mark Buckingham Big Band

The Band

The Band

The band was created during the UK lockdown period. Professional musicians where allowed to perform, rehearse and stream, so Mark took advanaged of this ruling to get players who where just sitting at home watching the telly or delivering groceries to get them playing again. Many thanks to St Mary’s Church Putney.

Chris Fletcher

Chris, the percussionist in the Groove Warriors, gave Mark a complete library of Big Band music about 6 months before his sudden death. Mark felt his wishes for it to be used should be fulfilled!


Mark has by chance assembled some of London’s finest musicains to play in this band. Hence the band are playing top arrangements by from the worlds finest bands. Count Basie, Gordon Goodwin, Buddy Rich etc. Live performance starts on the 23rd May 2021.
