The Guildhall Theatre in Derby will be swinging along to the Hits From The Blitz show on Sunday, September 16, starting at 6pm.
The unique feelgood 1940s show, as featured at Dame Vera Lynn’s Charity Gala Nights, boasts famous wartime tunes and singalongs, brought to life by the singers and multi-instrumentalists of the Five Star Swing band.
The concert features Simone from the latter days of the Ivy Benson Orchestra, plus Chris Smith Jnr, composer and arranger for Glenn Miller’s brother Herb and the BBC Radio Big Band.
Chris said: “I’ve been brought up with this style of music as my father, Chris Smith Snr, played trombone for Frank Sinatra on his European tours.
“It’s a great atmosphere during the show as there’s a strong resurgence in jazz and swing music enjoyed by all generations these days”.
Tickets are £10.50 (group discounts available) and are available by calling the box office on 01332 255800.
