The zestful energy of the Swing Jazz and Jive era is presented in spades when Symphony Sid And The Swing Kings take the stage to perform a star-studded selection of classic standards from the Great American Songbook – all the great tunes that made Glenn Miller a household name.
“Add rip-roaring saxophones to evocative Broadway glitz, glamour and razzmatazz – sit back and bask in the luxury of the ‘Big Band’ on parade…”
Symphony Sid And The Swing Kings capture and command the limelight with a vigorous vocal-led performance that makes all of those classic favourites from the Golden Age of Hollywood leap into life before your eyes. Look forward to sassy, classy arrangements that will surely have your toes tapping from the moment The Swing Kings take the stage. Add superb horns and some stunning vocals, and the show is on the road.
A solid and dependable rhythm section of guitar, bass and drums drives the music along. Throw in a stomping brass section, vividly reminiscent of the 1930s and ’40s American ‘Big Band’ at its absolute zenith, and you’ve got the perfect recipe for a totally brilliant night out. In addition, the band also includes a set of ‘Commitments’- style Soul and classic Rock’n’Roll. Be ready to party!
