Following the enormous success and popularity of “Legends of Swing” at theatres throughout the UK, and the revival of Swing music, Christmas Crooners is on its way to Buxton.
Originally arranged by Matthew Freeman, worldwide musical supervisor of the West End’s “Rat Pack”, the show, which is a wonderful trip down memory lane, especially for Christmas and the festive season, is on December 23 at Buxton Opera House.
Christmas Crooners features many of the Christmas favourites of Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole and ‘ole blue eyes himself, Frank Sinatra.
A fantastic cast of West End singers including Chris Vincent and Robert Grose, backed by the superb Jazz All-Stars band, perform over 30 hits including “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire”, “Little Drummer Boy”, “White Christmas” and many swing arrangements of Christmas hymns including “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”, “12 Days of Christmas” and “Silent Night”, along with many of their other hits.
Staged in the style of the famous Andy Williams Christmas Show, this brilliant production comes complete with a stunning décor - Christmas trees, a rocking chair and of course a beautiful fireplace; just right for chestnuts roasting on an open fire.
The Crooners and the Jazz All-Stars give the audience a show full of swinging Christmas cheer.
This is a show guaranteed to get you in the festive mood. Go and sing along to great songs from Christmas past”.
