SWING - The Beat That Shook The World - Event image

About this event

Brendan Fitzgerald Jazz Ensemble trumpets the slip and slide dance rhythms and slinky melodies of the 30's and 40's Swing era in this suave, sophisticated cabaret.

In 1929, the roaring twenties crashed in the Great Depression. A flamboyant world of excess gave way to a decade of austerity and rumblings of war. The crisis bred a new culture of escapism as deco dance halls became popular havens for big band exuberance and the euphoria of Swing. A riveting story channeled by New York's Metronome magazine music critic, George T Simon as he voices the rivalries and personalities of Swing.

★★★★★ "An inspired combination of music, song, theatre, dance and screen stills transporting the audience back to a unique period of the 20th century" The Advertiser
