Only UK Sinatra concert recommended by President of Sinatra Music Society, Sinatra, Sequins & Swing: The Capitol Years Live! is the ultimate homage to Sinatra’s golden years at Capitol Records. This critically acclaimed concert returns by popular demand to celebrate the legendary songs, films and Hollywood glamour of 1953-61, starring once again two of the most enthralling and talented singers of this genre, backed by the mighty Pete Long Orchestra (featuring players from Ronnie Scotts Jazz Orchestra & BBC Big Band).
With over 30 well-loved classics (likes of Chicago, World On A String, Night & Day, Witchcraft, The Tender Trap, I’ve Got You Under My Skin) interwoven with recreations of famous songs from Sinatra’s TV and film appearances. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s mesmerising Marilyn Monroe, some timeless hits by Sinatra’s legendary Capitol Records luminaries Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald and Bobby Darin and fun in between.
The quality and charisma of the two vocal stars has consistently mesmerised audiences worldwide. Similarly, world renowned band leader Pete Long (Ronnie Scott’s Big Band/Jools Holland’s Rhythm and Blues Orchestra), conducts and performs with some of the best musicians in the business. While the impact of his Orchestra (with star soloists from Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Orchestra & the BBC Big Band) hypnotises both newcomers and even most avid fans of the era.
