Todd Gordon sings the Sinatra Songbook

Hamilton-born Todd Gordon, recognised as one of Britain’s top jazz and swing vocalists, makes a welcome return to The Town House with his Sinatra Songbook. Not a conventional tribute show, but a sincere and sophisticated take on the music that was popularised by Sinatra when he was at his creative and artistic peak.

Over a 20-year period Todd Gordon has immersed himself in The Great American Songbook and has acquired a repertoire of well over a thousand songs. Expect a stunning vocal performance and an evening to remember.

“Doing it his way, the ghost of Sinatra lives on in the work of one of his most polished admirers” Clive Davis, The Times (London)


Dirty Harry Plus Dogtooth Plus DJ

Date:
Location:

Cost:

Dirty Harry

Dirty Harry is the only tribute band for the true Blondie fan.

Formed in 2011, Dirty Harry was borne out of singing doctor, Sarah Kennedy’s desire to create an act which could pay homage to everyone’s favourite rock goddess, Debbie Harry and to the band who practically invented Power Pop, Blondie.

In the annals of rock, Blondie is unique; their back catalogue has proven to be timeless and with Ms Harry at the front, what’s not to like!

Dirty Harry has not only the original sound, feel, attitude, and full back catalogue of the band but a look-a-like of Debbie to deliver the good stuff.

If a recap of some of the top tunes are required, lets remind ourselves; ‘Heart Of Glass’, ‘Call Me’, ‘Rapture’, ‘Sunday Girl’, ‘Dreaming’, ‘Atomic’, ‘Denis’, ‘Hanging on the Telephone’, ‘Maria’, ‘One Way or Another’ , Dirty Harry do it all plus plenty more.

The essence of Dirty Harry is to put on a show Blondie would give the nod to.

As Oscar Wilde put it - “There are but a few great second acts, but for those that can deliver in style, the applause lingers long after the curtain comes down and the critics have put down the sword…”

Pity he never caught Atomic Kittens version of ‘The Tide is High’!!

‘Every gun makes its own tune…’

A fusion of primal rhythm, energy, choreographed movement and infectious humour to captivate audiences of all ages and backgrounds...

After years of performing at some of the country’s most prestigious venues, T.V. and film appearances, touring across continents, and collaborating with different musicians from countless genres, members of Mugenkyo now return to the roots of Taiko drumming with a lively and entertaining concert, performing an array of traditional Taiko whilst revealing the history, culture and background in a dramatic but intimate show.

Rhythm, movement and humour light up the stage on a journey that's not to be missed...
