In the intimacy of the Pheasantry cabaret room, take a step back in time to the 1940s with songs and music made famous by the likes of Glenn Miller and other Big Bands of the period, brought to you by the Jon Bennett Band, with star guest vocalists. In addition there will be a few special surprises, including Iain Dawson as Viv the Spiv (whose appearances have included the London Palladium).

The Jon Bennett Band features six members of the critically acclaimed Jon Bennett Big Band (appearances include BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, London’s Savoy Hotel, Australian High Commission, Dominion Theatre, Lyceum Theatre, and a Royal Gala Performance). They will play the music of Glenn Miller and other songs of the period.

Among the featured ‘showbiz’ guest singers will be from the USA the excellent blues vocalist Kat Pearson; from the UK, the excellent vocalist Nicola Anne; the stylish vocalist Mickey JC, and Mr Showbiz himself, Peter Hammilton, vocalist and entertainer (from the legendary 60s band ‘The Others’); plus comedian Ian Dawson as Viv the Spiv (the man with the black market goods, whose many appearances have included the London Palladium). And there will be a touch of Piaf with the acclaimed artist Susan Black performing some authentic songs made famous by the French songbird. In addition there will be a special surprise or two. 

Enjoy your return to the 1940s.
