About

The Story of Swing

'From Bobby Darin to Bublé'

Hosted by renowned singer and entertainer Gareth John with 20 piece big band, Jazz Colossus, this brand new show for 2022 will take you on a journey through the much-loved style of swing and big band music through the hits of Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr, right through to modern day crooners such as Michael Bublé and Harry Connick Jr.

While Gareth is known for his top class showmanship, having shared the stage with members of the Beautiful South, The Specials and many more through his career, he is joined by some very special guests.

Local rising star Ffion Rebecca, Leicester music legend Gaz Birtles (ex-Beautiful South), highly regarded Sinatra tribute artist Morgan Perkins, and highly sought after performers The Vixen Trio are among those joining Gareth and the band on what will be a very special evening.
