Event details

Joe Pettitt and The Len Phillips Swing Orchestra plus West End stars Stephen Triffitt and Nicola Emmanuelle

Celebrating the two biggest names in jazz and popular music for a generation. Faithful renditions of Nelson Riddle’s stunning arrangements from stars of the West End’s Rat Pack: Live From Las Vegas plus thrilling new instrumental versions from Britain’s most popular 17-piece Big Band.

Setting the scene are the instrumental tracks from the bandleaders who worked with Sinatra and Fitzgerald through their careers: Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Harry James, Tommy Dorsey, Quincy Jones, Chick Webb, Billy May and Buddy Rich.

With two shows for Sky TV (100 Years of Big Bands and A Swingin’ Christmas with Mica Paris), a Number 1 in the iTunes Jazz chart, a top 40 hit in the UK Singles Chart, a live-stream from Abbey Road Studios, performances at the Royal Albert Hall, Cadogan Hall, Blackpool’s Tower Ballroom and a tour to Dubai, all in the last two years alone, this is an orchestra to reckoned with.

Frank Sinatra Jr said of Triffitt, “Stephen is the best, the greatest, because he captures the soul of my father”. He starred for three seasons in Las Vegas at the Sands Casino and has twice sold-out the London Palladium with own solo show.

Nicola Emmanuelle created the role of Ella Fitzgerald in the West End production of the Rat Pack: Live From Las Vegas and is one of the most highly regarded jazz singers in Britain today.

“Swing, sophistication and sass. The ultimate orchestra with an unrivalled sound” - Dame Joan Collins
