Have you heard the latest swing sensation? Pack up and come fly away with the best swing band around. Picture yourself dancing cheek to cheek with your loved one, to music of a time less hurried, where women adorned in hats and gloves were wooed by handsome strangers in the night. To a time when crooners like Sinatra and Nat King Cole ruled the nightclubs. Indulge in a Martini, sit back and relax to the smooth crooning vocals of Mr Brad Leaver. As sophisticated and profound as anything by Tony Bennett, Brad combines PhD intellect with caveman machismo, mixed in blender of pure swing, guaranteed to grab even the most Sinatra proof listener way down at the bottom of the soul.

Backed by a piano trio Led by Ian Macrae, with Dave Sanders on drums and Owen Newcomb on double bass, strap yourselves in for a night a unforgettable show of swing and bossa nova classics. Come and celebrate the style and mood of the fabulous forties and fifties aboard this first class musical journey.
