Get ready for an evening of infectious, melodic swing. Man Overboard have trawled the decades of the early 20th century to bring together this collection of toe-tapping, quick-stepping tunes of the highest quality.
The Man Overboard Quintet add their own stamp to a repertoire of tunes made famous by the likes of Billie Holiday, Django Reinhardt, the Mills Brothers, Duke Ellington and Fats Waller. The chemistry between these superb musicians and their audience makes every performance a magical occasion.
“Distinctive style, strong individual personalities and a collective ear for a great song”
