    8th February 2010 Big Band Singer Matthew Ford

    An evening of musical nostalgia greeted the Arts and Literary Society at its 13th presentation when Matthew Ford and his Band gave us ‘A tribute to the Swing Legends’. The nine piece band of outstanding musicians, many of whom had appeared with Jim Wilson at the unforgettable MGM promenade concert last year, accompanied Matthew as he reminded us of the legendary performers such as Matt Monro, Tony Bennett and Dean Martin. The music was lively and very reminiscent of the big band era with which most of us had grown up. The audience loved every minute of the performance and clapped and cheered for more, so Matthew and his band obliged with a truly epic rendering of Mack the Knife.
