From London’s Leicester Square Theatre, Five Star Swing are returning to Queen Mother Theatre in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, on Thursday, May 25 with ‘The Big Band’.

This is an evening of vintage swing, featuring classic songs from Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Glenn Miller and many more.

The show also features Shirley Bassey’s and Tony Bennett’s trombonist Mike Innes.

Saxophonist and vocalist Simone Smith will be swinging along with songs she has previously performed with the famous Ivy Benson Orchestra and the Squadronaires band.

Simone said: “Fans have enjoyed this ‘feel-good’ style of music for generations.

“Following our extensive UK tour, I’m excited to be bringing the band back home!”

As seen on BBC TV’s Children in Need and Dame Vera Lynn’s Charity Ball, the band of multi-instrumentalists and singers is led by band leader Chris Smith, composer and arranger for the BBC Radio Big Band and a former composer for Herb Miller Big Band.

Tickets cost £14 adult and £13 concessions, and doors are at 7.30pm.
