FIVE STAR SWING presents a new and exclusive 'feel good' 1940s matinee show... HITS FROM THE BLITZ.

 

One of the many things that came out of the UK during the 2nd World War years was British people's determination to sing-a-long and help raise the mood out of all that was bad around them.

 

This unique brand new and exclusive 'feel good' 1940s matinee show recreates a sing-a-long platform for the audience to join in! Songs brought to life by the singers and multi-instrumentalists of the Five Star Swing band ("superb, they swing like crazy!" – Sheila Tracy, BBC). Featuring Simone from the latter days of the Ivy Benson Orchestra plus Chris Smith (Jnr) composer and arranger for Glenn Miller's Brother, Herb and the BBC Radio Big Band.

 

GLENN MILLER! ANNE SHELTON! BUD FLANAGAN! COUNT BASIE! GRACIE FIELDS! ARTHUR ASKEY! VERA LYNN! DORIS DAY! TOMMY DORSEY! FRANK SINATRA! The repertoire list just goes on...

 

The song list also goes on... It's A Long Way To Tipperary, Pack Up Your Troubles, Lili Marlene, The White Cliffs of Dover, I'll Be Seeing You, There'll Always Be an England, A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square, Bless ‘Em All, Roll Out The Barrel, Run Rabbit Run, Wish Me Luck, We're Gonna' Hang Out The Washing, Kiss Me Good Night Sergeant Major, The Very Thought Of You, Bye Bye Blackbird, Little Brown Jug, Tuxedo Junction, American Patrol, Chattanooga Choo Choo, Pennsylvania 6-5000, A String Of Pearls, Moonlight Serenade, In The Mood... to mention but a few.

 

Join us for an afternoon of sing-a-long and memories that will create the uplifting mood of the 1940s era.
