The Big Swing

The Big Swing

Saturday 14th April 2007 at 7.30pm in the Main House

The music, the magic, the humour and the sheer entertainment of a Las Vegas style Rat Pack show.

The Big Swing “A fantastic band that really makes the party come alive” present an evening of swing era classics with the superbly talented Johnny Grey “wow, what a voice!”." The show carries the trademark humour of the legendary Frank Sinatra as well as the timeless music of Cole Porter, Count Basie, Nelson Riddle and Sammy Cahn. 

The magic of songs such as Come Fly With Me, Mack the Knife and Beyond the Sea is recaptured in this highly entertaining show. The Big Swing, formed in 2003, has quickly come to prominence as one of the region’s most exciting acts.  The band brings together a diverse group of talented musicians including some rising stars of the Midland’s Jazz scene. 

What unites the band is a commitment to recapturing the spirit of the Las Vegas swing era as well as great pleasure in playing some of the finest songs ever written.

Tickets £12 (Concessions £10)
