The Capitol Years Live!
Prepare to be wowed by ‘Sinatra Sequins & Swing (The Capitol Years Live!), the most exciting new Big Band Swing concert to hit the UK in years and a real treat for any fan of 50s Big Bands, Frank Sinatra, Rat Pack, Swing & old-fashioned 50s Hollywood glamour.
See the UK’s most impressive Big Band Swing artists and a world class 15 piece Orchestra (led by showman MD of Ronnie Scott’s Orchestra, Pete Long, and players from BBC Big Band, John Wilson & Ronnie Scott’s Orchestras) live on stage in this high-impact, relentlessly entertaining Big Band concert-extravaganza celebrating the hits, the films & the 50s Hollywood glamour of 1953-60...Sinatra’s supreme ‘Capitol Records’ years.
With over 30 huge hits: inc likes of World On A String, Come Fly With Me, Too Marvellous, I’ve Got You Under My Skin, Night and Day, You Make Me Feel So Young, They Can’t Take That Away From Me & more. Entertainingly interwoven with some wonderful recreations of iconic songs from movies such as Pal Joey, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, High Society. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s classics from equally popular luminaries of this era: such as stunning Peggy Lee, mesmerising Marilyn Monroe & slice of swingin’ Bobby Darin too!
The show’s outstanding frontman, Kevin Fitzsimmons, is hailed for his naturally swinging vocal majesty. And, uniquely, has been endorsed as both the voice of Frank Sinatra, in a TV commercial with Hollywood movie star Naomi Watts, and the voice of Dean Martin, for a UK radio commercial. Special guest singer, retro jazz-cabaret diva Kitty La Roar, brings more than just vocal prowess & jaw-dropping sequined glamour with her sassy homage to the screen sirens & sultry-voiced divas of those heady years. Via hits like Fever, Too Darn Hot, My Heart Belongs To Daddy, Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend & stunning duets like You’re Sensational, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire plus other surprises. Simply unmissable!
