Giving theatregoers a real taste and visual experience
8:50am Monday 16th December 2013 in Local
THE new Sinatra, Sequins and Swing concert show will be coming to the Palace Theatre.
This show is not to be mistaken with the typical tribute Rat Pack Shows. Expect to be musically wowed by an honest rendition of Sinatra’s ‘50s Hollywood Glamour from his significant Capitol Records years backed by a world-class 15 piece Big Band live on stage.
Audiences can expect to hear highly talented vocals supported by top players drawn from likes of BBC Big Band, Ronnie Scotts Orchestra, John Wilson Orchestra and all directed by the MD of Ronnie Scotts Orchestra, Pete Long.
It celebrates a special musical era via more than 30 hits such as World on a String, Come Fly With Me, Chicago, Witchcraft and several duets like Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.
It is fronted by Big Band jazz singer Kevin Fitzsimmons, who has performed his own sell out shows at world famous venues and private events for many celebrity and VIP clients, Sir Trevor Macdonald being one as well as HRH the Prince of Wales.
Essex-based singer/co-producer Kevin said: "The show is a key event for any fan of Sinatra, Big Bands and 50s Hollywood. And if you like The Rat Pack – you’ll love this wonderful Capitol Years show."
The show also features world-class retro Jazz starlet Kitty La Roar, providing a visual Hollywood screen siren, with a real talented sultry voice.
A spokesman for the Palace said: "The show is brilliant and local audiences are in for a real treat. Tickets are good value for money too as The Pete Long Orchestra, also known as the Ronnie Scotts Jazz Orchestra, alone cost around £40 to see at Ronnie Scotts, so fans also see this top Big Band locally at nearly half price."
The Frank Sinatra Capitol Years spanned from 1953 to1960, shortly after Frank’s Oscar winning performance for the classic movie From here to Eternity.
This era was the pinnacle of Sinatra’s career and the heyday of Big Band Swing and Hollywood screen sirens.
The show is on February 13 next year.
