Sam Furlonger is quickly building a name for himself as a top London vocalist since relocating to the capital in 2022. Following years of fronting big bands and smaller groups, he cut his teeth and paid his dues in his coastal home-town.

The most recent collaboration with top London band The Fraser Smith Quintet sees Sam sing an iconic set of expertly transcribed arrangements from the seminal ‘Sinatra in Paris’ concert. The group’s first London show was a roaring success, selling out weeks in advance.

?So much more than a tribute act, the group features some of Europe’s finest young professional Jazz musicians. Living and breathing swing, they bring the inimitable music and legend of Sinatra to life for a modern audience.
