Friends for 30-years, multi award-winning vocalist Claire Martin OBE and legendary saxophonist and vocalist Ray Gelato have combined their love of all things 'swing' and joined forces for their first show together, 'A Swinging Affair'.
These much celebrated and respected musicians share the stage with a world-class trio led by renowned-pianist Dave Newton to explore the Great American Songbook - including classics such as; 'Let's Call the Whole Thing Off', 'When Your Lover Has Gone', 'Undecided', 'They all Laughed' and 'They Can't Take That Away from Me'. Their shared passion for the music will be evident as they revisit and reinvent hits by artistes such as Louis Jordan, Amos Milburn and Louis Prima.
If you like your music sassy, sharp and swinging - this is the show for you. A swinging affair indeed!
