WORKSOP welcomes a top class musical act next month with a tribute to the Kings of Swing.

Gary Grace and his eight-piece Shiny Stockings Orchestra come to North Notts Community Arena on Saturday 9th June.

International jazz - swing vocalist Gary promises an authentic rat-pack inspired evening of golden oldies, with some more modern classics thrown in.

Expect to hear the silky tones of Frank Sinatra, Nat ‘King’ Cole, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett and Matt Monro amongst others.

Plus up-to-date numbers by artists such as Michael Buble.

Gary began singing as a child, and his vocal talent blossomed under the expert guidance of singing teacher Gladys Riseley.

In addition to his many appearances abroad, which have included several six-month seasons in the Balearic Islands, he has also performed in a number of UK theatres including London’s West End, as well as for cruises, corporate events and private functions. He is also in much demand for weddings.

Supporting Gary on 9th June will be special guest Sara Blair-Manning whose jazz - swing style emulates Ella Fitzgerald and complements Gary’s act perfectly.

The show will also feature the fabulous electric violinist Caroline Owen.

The evening promises to be a swinging night not to be missed.

Tickets are priced just £10.
