We proudly welcome back London’s favourite singing band favourites with their new show ‘A Portrait of Matt’ with newly arrangements dedicated to the legacy of the UK’s finest singer Matt Monro. ‘The singers Singer’ was also described as a polished performer with feathery velvet tones and unsurpassed excellence who often hung around Denmark Street where the music
publishers were so how apt that the Denmark street Big band pay tribute in his memory. From Oscar winning Born Free The Italian Job, from Russia with Love, from Broadway songs to Spanish recorded songs and to the wonderfully produced George Martin recordings to Don Black’s lyrics. Tonight’s special guest vocalist features swinging favourite Paul Wood.

The Denmark Street Big Band recreates the swinging jazz sounds of the bigband era, performing music and songs than span an entire century of music, including standards made famous by Frank Sinatra, Dean martin,Sammy Davis Jnr, Bobby Darin, Nat King Cole, Ray Charles,Glenn Miller,Count Basie and Ella Fitzgerald along with other legends of ‘The American Songbook’.

Performing these classic songs using the Billy May, Nelson Riddle and Quincy Jones arrangements and using the finest musicians and vocalists in the UK, the band will transport you back to Las Vegas and perfectly capture the unique style and sound of this fantastic era of entertainment.
