Big Muffin Serious Band


A kid-orientated big band (and the music-orientated side-line of the McGillicudy Serious Party political outfit) encompassing many different styles, always with a comic edge, and never using guitars.

Jim Fulton and Graeme Cairns released their debut back in 1987, and it took some 14 years before the follow-up Heavens to Murgatroyd appeared with extra member Baz Galbraith joining the fold (which includes an array of ensemble players).
