AS part of a national tour, Five Star Swing are coming to Worcester's Huntingdon Hall this month with "The Big Band".

The show promises to be an evening of vintage swing, featuring classic songs from Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Glenn Miller, performed by the Five Star Swing's multi-instrumentalists and singers.

As seen on BBC's Children in Need and Dame Vera Lynn's charity ball, the show is led by bandleader Chris Smith Jr, composer and arranger for the BBC Radio Big Band and a former composer for Herb Miller Big Band.

Along with Tony Bennett's trombonist, also featured is vocalist and saxophonist Simone, who was taught to play alto saxophone in the 1980's by bandleader Ivy Benson.

The band's local trombone player, Alan Collier, said: "Fans have enjoyed this 'feel-good' style of music for generations - following our extensive UK tour, I am excited to be bringing the sound of our big band brass, saxes, rhythm and vocalists back home."

Tickets for the show at Huntingdon Hall on Tuesday, August 16, are £16 and are available by calling 01905 611427.
