Chris Ross & the Broadway Swing Band 

'Swing the American Songbook'

Please join Chris Ross and his amazing band for an evening of swing classics from the 40's and 50's. There's a selection of well-known songs from Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Bobby Darin, and even Al Jolson gets a look in. We have long admired the era of the music known as "The American Songbook". These instantly familiar songs have stood the test of time and have been brought to our attention again by performers such as Michael Buble, Rod Stewart, Dianna Krall.

 

Glenn Millar's "In the Mood" is never going away ...

Sinatra's "Got you under my skin", first recorded in 1946, is still a firm favourite

Al Jolson's "My Mammy" is a track that gets the crowd joining in whenever it's performed.

 

Come reminisce with these songs and many more when Chris Ross and his 7 piece band "The Broadway Swing" showcase them at the Duke of George on Thursday 21st January 2021
