Event description

It's the year 1954. Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James and Eartha Kitt are all at the dizzy heights of their careers. With swinging jazz, powerful soul and cheeky kitsch these three women broke new ground for all who followed after. Melissa Western and her world class all-female band pay tribute to this magnificent era in music and inspiring trio of pioneering singers. 50s style abounds.

“Western is absolutely brilliant… Her aptitude for music is vast and versatile” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ThreeWeeks magazine [UK]
