About this event
This show is an absolute 'must see' for any Bobby Darin devotees. It was Darin who had the hit record with 'Mack the Knife' and this show takes you on a journey through his career - from the early days through to his shows in Las Vegas, and his untimely death at the young age of 37. Singer Tony Benedict (lead singer of the world famous 'Kings of Swing') is an authority on the life and music of Bobby Darin, and he weaves his own special kind of magic with the songs and the stories. He is accompanied by the Greg Francis Orchestra, who will also play for Ballroom/Sequence dancing in the evening.
This show lovingly reprises a vast catalogue of music recorded during this legendary singer's short but very dynamic career. The show features an amazing young vocalist,Tony Benedict, whose excellent interpretations of hits like 'Mac the Knife' (Darin's number one hit!) 'Beyond the Sea' 'Dream Lover' 'Lazy River' 'Clementine' and many more, flow with ease as he tells the story of Darin's life and career. Providing a truly spectacular accompaniment is the Greg Francis Orchestra.
