Tony Turner is bringing his Northern Showtime Orchestra back to Whitby Pavilion to present its new show The Great American Songbook on Sunday October 11 at 7.30pm
Richard Adams will be the guest vocalist as the orchestra features the music of George and Ira Gershwin, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Duke Ellington and other great songwriters of the 1930s to the 1960s.
Scarborough-based Richard is a guitarist and accomplished male vocalist.
Richard is developing a national reputation for his ability to recreate the songs first performed by legendary singers such as Frank Sinatra, Ray Eberle, Nat King Cole and others.
“Not only does this eight- piece orchestra perform this great music live,” said Tony Turner, trombonist and orchestra leader, “but we recreate the originally recorded performances of Frank Sinatra, Fred Astaire, Michael Buble, Robbie Williams, Tony Bennett and even Lady Gaga.
“Picture Fred Astaire dancing with Ginger Rogers when we strike up songs like Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off, Fascinatin’ Rhythm or classic ballads such as Summertime and Georgia On My Mind.”
Tony Turner is a member of the George Bradley Big Band, the Geoff Laycock Orchestra and other UK brass and big bands.
Tony has put together the Northern Showtime Orchestra shows.
The orchestra will also be performing its Story of Glenn Miller Show on Sunday November 8 at the Whitby Pavilion. Reduced prices are available if booking tickets for both shows.
