Crooners

Victoria Theatre, Halifax on June 15.

Join the company of three self-assured gentlemen of style and vigour, who swing the hell out of the music of Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin and Matt Monro, backed by an outrageous live 10 piece band and a splendiferously British injection of comedy.Crooners brings parody to a genre symbolised by the crooner and exemplified by the music of the Rat Pack and the American Songbook in a manner that will leave you smiling from ear to ear. Among the three is former Manchester City and Ireland footballer Jim Whitely. 01422 351158.
