DEAN DOYLE WITH SOPHISTICATION
A SWINGING SESSION
With Special Guests Bruce Rollo & Brian Pamphilon
SATURDAY AUGUST 24
Doors: 7pm – Show: 7.30pm
All Tickets: $20
Dean Doyle with Sophistication present an afternoon of swinging music and great vocals as we salute the fabulous Big Band Crooners. The modern Big Band vocal style began 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 have been around for almost 80 years. But the cool singer with an attitude and seemingly all the time in the world to deliver a song (in front of 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 are joined by our Rat Pack Brothers: Bruce Rollo (vocalist, avid Sinatra fan and an excellent impersonator) and Brian Pamphilon (vocalist, pianist and Trumpet player). 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.
