Our 30th Anniversary album will be studio-recorded and will focus on the great British Dance Bands of the late 1920s and 30s - including a toe-tapping selection of songs in superb 'period' musical arrangements, performed by the PDO's marvellous musicians and singers.

If you prefer to pay by cheque, please make it payable to 'The Piccadilly Dance Orchestra' and contact us for a postal address.
Funding is for:
Recording studio + engineering (including mixing & editing);
Album design (including front cover, back cover, liner note insert, disc artwork);
Musical arrangements and transcriptions from original 78rpm recordings;
Production & manufacturing of physical albums;
We have decided not to use Kickstarter because they take 10% of funds raised and we want as much as possible of your generous contributions to be used to produce the album.
Our aim is to raise £7,500. If we raise more than this, we may be able to add more musicians such as violins and an additional sax, trumpet and trombone to some of the recording sessions.
Sponsors will be kept informed about the album's progress by email. Thank you in advance for your support!
