Eighty years after the explosion of swing the genre still remains as popular as ever - and Alistair Izobellís tribute show Slick Swing will bring this vibrant era to life at the Roxy Revue Bar until 30 March 2013.
In the 1930s American musicians produced some of the greatest songs and singers, many of whom are still acclaimed today. In more recent times a Robbie Williams and Westlife cover of the Glen Miller classic ĎAinít that a Kick in the Headí introduced the genre to new generations.
Three dynamic singers and a five-piece band will produce the distinctive swing rhythm and big band sound. Vocals are provided by the talented Nur Abrahams, Aleshia Solomons and Edith Plaatjes, backed by Don Veno Prins on saxophone, Trevino Isaacs on keyboards, Charlton Daniels on bass and backing vocals, Jayson Delaney on guitar and Keagan Links on drums.
The foot-tapping, finger-clicking song list contains all the favourite swing standards and the audience can expect to hear Almost like being in love, Thou swell, Paper Moon, Thatís life, Mack the knife and many more.
Slick Swing at the Roxy Revue Bar is on Wednesdays to Saturdays from 8 :00pm. Tickets are R78.00.
