Pasadena Roof Orchestra

Puttin’ on the Ritz!


7.30pm Stahl Theatre

West Street, Oundle, PE8 4EJ


Tickets:  £17.50 adult / £5 u18


The Pasadena Roof Orchestra is famous throughout the world for re-creating the glories of popular music from the 1920s and 1930s. Their fun-packed show features timeless classics from the great American song book – those wonderful songs that miraculously lifted people’s spirits during the depression era, and which made household names of singers such as Bing Crosby, Al Bowlly, and Fred Astaire.


The musicians are masters of the arrangements and sound worlds of the fabled American orchestras such as Duke Ellington and Fletcher Henderson whilst also paying tribute to the great British dance bands led by the likes of Ray Noble or Ambrose. Presenting the show, and putting on the top hat white tie and tails, is the suave singer and band leader, Duncan Galloway.  


So pack up your troubles, come on get happy, and experience an evening of superlative live music, with more than a dash of wit and humour!


“The Pasadena Roof Orchestra has an unrivalled reputation for its stylish performances of the great showband music of the 1920's, 30's and 40's.” What’sOnStage

Acclaimed jazz vocalist, Atila, and his stellar group of musicians have wowed packed audiences in London’s Hippodrome and Ronnie Scott’s, with their unique tribute to one of music’s all-time greats. Featuring many of Nat King Cole’s most loved songs, including Nature Boy, Unforgettable and When I Fall in Love, alongside stylish re-workings of his lesser-known gems, their show celebrates one of the defining voices of the twentieth century and uses music, narration and archive footage to take a fresh look at the life and work of one of the most iconic vocalists of all time.


Atila rose to fame as a vocalist for the National Youth Jazz Orchestra before being asked to tour the world’s top jazz venues with the legendary Buddy Greco. He makes regular appearances in London’s top iazz venues and collaborates on recordings and live performances with some of the UK’s most highly regarded musicians.


“I was knocked out by Atila. He has the voice and the class to show the world what great music is all about.” Buddy Greco

The David Gordon Trio has appeared on BBC Radio 3, at King’s Place, Copenhagen’s Jazzhouse and in the London Jazz Festival; they are also regular performers at London’s 606 club. Their music is characterised by searingly beautiful melodies, free-flowing improvisation and quick-fire humour which is no more evident than in their recent project ‘Alexander Scriabin’s Ragtime Band’ which has received across-the-board praise from jazz critics around the world.


Inspired by the Russian pianist/composer genius, this remarkable trio has produced exquisite jazz interpretations of Scriabin's miniatures – his billets-doux to eternity - and of pieces by Debussy, Irving Berlin and WC Handy. Jazz will love truly outstanding performance.


'Gordon takes an unlikely concept and makes it work superbly. The broad mix of musical styles keeps both band and audience on their toes and the playing is infused with wit and wisdom throughout' thejazzmann.com
