The Fabulous Legend of Swing show by Paul-Hayden of the British Rat Pack literally rocked or rather swung Leamington Spa theatre last night with such an incredible cast of high end corporate entertainers that included Paul-Hayden, Joe Corrigan, George Anthony, Val Kelly and special guest Kirsty, The Legend of Swing orchestra and Vegas Show girls proved that a non tribute show was the best thing happening in swing music for music lovers.
Revellers were blown away by the live music entertainment that this production offered and delivered.
The charming Paul-Hayden gave a prequel of the forth coming performance as the show opened with the acappella “Hush” highlighting the pure vocal talent that was in store for those in attendance.
These Head line soloists proved so much amazing talent with mind blowing harmonies as a vocal unit as well as incredible solo performers.
This show had a class above all other swing shows. The natural fun on stage filled the theatre while in addition the Big Swing Band /Orchestra were mind blowing, punchy and concise.
As far as journeys are concerned The Legend of Swing show covered everything from the 1920’s Crossroads into this millennium. They brought to life in a very unique way the smash hits that were made famous by Billie Holliday, Glenn Miller, Marilyn Monroe and The Rat Pack.
There were no pretentious tribute performances as this entertaining show is fit to bring Las Vegas into this millennium.
Val Kelly bounced the house with Peggy Lee’s “He’s a tramp”. George Anthony grooved the audience with Nat King Coles “Pennies from Heaven”. Joe Corrigan rocked the boat with Bublé’s “Cry me a river”, while Paul Hayden truly punched out “That’s life” in a unique manner that the great Frank Sinatra would have been proud of.
The Legend of Swing show has always incorporated some very special guests along the way including; Ian Gomes, Mim Grey and on this occasion the fabulous Kirsty singing “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” with gorgeous burlesque show girls amongst others on stage that brought the house down.
The Legend of Swing orchestra are a real who’s who when it comes to the support they have given to many celebrities as BBC and Westend musicians. This great sixteen piece Big Band was led by the brilliant Musical Director “Duncan Lamont” who opened the second set with beautiful instrumental renditions of “Glenn Miller’s” Sing sing sing and In the mood.
The Legend of Swing production was written by Paul Gittins and co director Joe Corrigan. It has continually pulled in an incredible line up of the United Kingdom’s top corporate vocal entertainers, a blistering big band orchestra and fabulous dancing show girls from the Vegas Show Girl act.
After the show at Leamington, Paul announced that this production will now be made available to the high end of corporate entertainment and party planning sector which is the music entertainment industry from which he is accustomed having performed for Royalty, Coutts and the like.
“Though we have always blown away all audiences in attendance at the theatres, this production only came to light because of our successfully working the corporate entertainment sector. Therefore it is only right after this tour that the high end of corporate entertainment and hospitality should benefit from the Legend of Swing production”.
We say “That if you the public want to see a show that has cost many thousands in the making then go to the final public showing in Bournemouth on the 22nd July because unless as with the previously entertained Coutts top 80 who make a cool £ million on every heart beat you will probably not get the chance to see the show again unless on television”.
The Legend of Swing show corporate entertainment that was made available to the masses with our compliments and those compliments of corporate entertainment companies.
