WESTON-BASED band the Live And Swingin’ Boys will be hitting the high notes for a charity show at the Winter Gardens.

The band, which includes members Exley Edwards, Mike Purnell and Simon Duffill, has recently been in concert with Go Compare tenor, Wynne Evans and their show Live & Swingin’ has been delighting audiences all over the UK.

After the band’s success at Weston’s Blakehay Theatre, they are back, complete with the Encore Swing Band to deliver another sell-out show.

They also have a special guest singer, West-End leading lady Ria Jones.

Ria recently starred in Best of Broadway at the Royal Albert Hall with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as Evita, Cats and Chess.

She is a long-standing friend and follower of the Live And Swingin’ Boys and is happy they have the opportunity to perform together on the same stage.

The band will be performing hits such as Mack The Knife, Lady Is A Tramp, New York New York, That’s Life, Mr Bojangles and Fly Me To The Moon.

The band will be also raising money for the charity Prostate Cancer.

The event will take place on August 11 and will include a meal. People can sit down for the meal at 7.30pm and the show will start at 8.15pm.

Tickets for the meal and show are priced £29.95, and £15 for the show alone, which are available from Encore Pro Productions box office on 01934 835245, or from the Winter Gardens.
