Swing makes a comeback at Roxy's, GrandWest

Eighty years after the arrival of swing Alistair Izobell's tribute show Slick Swing brings the vibrant era to life at the GrandWest Roxy Revue Bar from 8 February to 30 March, 2013, Wednesday to Saturday.
In the 1930s, American musicians produced some of the greatest songs and singers, many of whom are still acclaimed today. In more recent times a Robbie Williams and Westlife cover of the Glen Miller classic Ain't That A Kick In The Head introduced the genre to new generations.

All the favourite swing standards

Three dynamic singers and a five-piece band will produce the distinctive swing rhythm and big-band sound. Vocals are provided by Nur Abrahams, Aleshia Solomons and Edith Plaatjes, backed by Don Veno Prins on saxophone, Trevino Isaacs on keyboards, Charlton Daniels on bass and backing vocals, Jayson Delaney on guitar, and Keagan Links on drums.

The song list contains all the favourite swing standards and the audience can expect to hear Almost Like Being In love, Thou Swell, Paper Moon, That's Life, Mack The Knife and many more.

Doors open at 8pm and the curtain rises at 8.30pm. Tickets are available from Computicket at R78.
