Following their success last year a trio of Arbroath entertainers has been encouraged to hold another swing-themed charity concert.

Singers Alan Mowatt, Doug Ford and Stuart Cargill will reprise their hit show ‘That’s Life: A Night of Classic Swing’ over three nights at the Meadowbank Inn.

Last year they raised £3,626 which went to local branches of Macmillan Cancer Support and The British Heart Foundation and this year local causes will again benefit.

The singers will perform a number of Rat Pack classics and songs from other swing heroes such as Bobby Daren.

Joining them this year is singer Tracy Gibson who will pay tribute to the likes of Ella Fitzgerald and other divas from the swing era.

Compere for the evening is Matt Paterson and comedian Frank Murray will also be tickling some ribs during the show.

It promises to be an evening of high entertainment and smooth style according to Alan. He said: “We’ve put it together like a night at The Vegas Sands Hotel. There’s a glass of bubbly on arrival, smooth music and then there’s a meal and the entertainment starts with a comedian and our own MC.”

The show is set to run from Friday, November 22, to Sunday, November 24, and tickets are rapidly disappearing, with Saturday’s show already sold out.

Tickets are £25 for Friday and £20 for Sunday, and includes a champagne reception, a two course meal and a full evening’s entertainment.

To buy a ticket call Alan Mowatt on 07710427005, Stuart Cargill on 07780824156 or Doug Ford on 01241 879383.
