Folly Farm have announced the date of its Summer Swingtime Spectacular on Saturday 25 June at 7.00pm. A superb evening of swing time classics and some memorable tunes with Chris Powell on the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ joined by the sensational swing band The Numbers Racket.
Celebrity guest player, Chris Powell on the fabulous Wurlitzer Organ, is a renowned performer, playing concerts by invitation throughout the UK and overseas and is well known for his Blackpool style which he developed while he was resident at the Tower Ballroom. Joining him on the band stand will be professional 7-piece swing, jazz, jump-jive and blues band, The Numbers Racket, encouraging you to dance to classics from Ray Charles, Jackie Wilson, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy plus many more.
Chris Ebsworth, Managing Director at Folly Farm said: “It’s likely to be hugely popular night as the Numbers Racket have a large local following in fact it’s unlikely to fulfil one of their classic songs ‘Ain’t nobody here but us chickens’ so we are advising to book early to avoid disappointment on the night.”
The Summer Swingtime Spectacular will be a night to ‘Let the good times roll’ and maybe try your hand at a ceroc dance move or bob to a lindy hop rhythm. Or, just sit back and relax while you enjoy the foot tapping nostalgic songs from across the decades. Whichever way you choose to enjoy the night, you won’t be disappointed in this Summer Swingtime Spectacular.
Tickets are £8.00 and available at the Folly Farm Box Office on 01834 812731, preshow and interval basket meals available but pre-booking is advisable.
