Fans of the Rat Pack and the music of the American Song Book are being offered a very British alternative for 2017.

Crooners is a brand new comedy musical that puts a quintessential British twist to a genre symbolized by the Crooner and exemplified by the music of the Rat Pack and the American Song Book.

This comedy musical is a collaboration between comedy writer and performer, Roman Marek, and one of the UK’s most prolific modern swing bands, The Mini Big Band, and features music of the greatest Crooners of all time; Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jnr as well as Tony Bennet, Bobby Darin and Britain’s very own crooner, Matt Monro, with a brand new comedy script that has had audiences smiling from ear to ear.

'We love the music of the Rat Pack and the great crooners and wanted to combine that with our love of the British variety comedy show' says script writer Roman Marek. 'We wanted a show that makes British audiences laugh out loud. An all singing, all dancing musical comedy the likes of Morcombe and Wise.'

Crooners follows the story of three very British gentlemen who, by their very nature, exhume the characteristics of a crooner; suave, self-assured, stylish. But, by the very same nature, it is not always obvious that these characteristics adopt quite so well by the quintessentially British. Cue a splendiferous injection of British comedy. Tongue firmly in cheek.

'What excites us about this show is that we are not limited to music like a Rat Pack tribute' adds Musical Director, Chris Hibbard. 'The show has songs famed by Tony Bennett, Bobby Darin, Nat King Cole and Matt Monro. All the greats.'

The show includes the fully live on stage musicianship of the 10-piece modern swing band The Mini Big Band. The is going to be a swingin’ affair.
