A Swinging Session

With Brian Pamphilon and Bruce Rollo

Dean Doyle with Sophistication present an evening of swinging music and great vocals as we salute the fabulous Big Band Crooners. The modern Big Band vocal style peaked with Frank Sinatra’s ‘Songs for Swinging Lovers’ in the mid-fifties. Since that album, singing with a laid-back delivery in front of a swinging band has never gone out of style!

Big Band singers had been around for almost 20 year. But the cool singer with an attitude and seemingly all the time in the world to deliver a song (in front of a cooking band), started with Sinatra’s concept albums of the 50’s. Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jnr, Bobby Darin and more recently Harry Connick Jnr and Michael Buble have kept this Music current and hip over the years.

To kick through this fabulous repertoire, Sophistication is joined by our little Rat Pack: Bruce Rollo (vocalist, avid Sinatra fan and an excellent impersonator) and Brian Pamphilon (vocalist, pianist and trumpet player who starred in the Ballina Players Production of ‘The Boy From Oz’). The band will also be a major part of the show with vocal and piano solos from the fabulous Narelle Harris, and classic drum features from Paul Belsham.
