If you love the big band sound…
West Cliff Theatre Clacton is staging a mammoth musical tribute on on July 14.
According to the producers, this is not the typical tribute Rat Pack shows, but an honest rendition of Sinatra’s ’50s Hollywood Glamour from his Capitol Records years – backed by a full big band live on stage.
Pete Long’s all-star 15-piece orchestra is led by respected big band singer Kevin Fitzsimmons who, last year recreated Frank Sinatra’s voice for a TV advert with Hollywood movie star Naomi Watts. World class retro jazz starlet Kitty La Roar a visual Hollywood screen siren, Marilyn Monroe look, with a real sultry voice. She sings hits such as Ella Fitzgerald’s ‘Too Darn Hot’ & Peggy Lee’s ‘Fever’ and more.
Faithfully recreated 50s arrangements include classics such as World on a String, Come Fly With Me, Chicago, Witchcraft and several duets like Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, celebrating a special musical era through over 30 hits and seven costume changes.
The Frank Sinatra Capitol Years’ spanned from 1953 to 1960, shortly after Frank’s Oscar winning performance for the classic movie ‘From here to Eternity’. This era was heyday of Hollywood screen sirens and Big Band swing.
Andy Jeffrey of West Cliff Theatre, said: “We are really looking forward to Sinatra, Sequins & Swing. The show is fantastic and local audiences are in for a real treat, and tickets are good value for money, too.”
