Richard Shelton: Sinatra and Me

  • Stafford Gatehouse Theatre (map)

Join us for one night of true glitz when Hollywood based award winning British actor and singer Richard Shelton arrives in Liverpool to don Sinatra’s tuxedo and pulls out some of the greatest of Sinatra’s songs.

Supported by the fabulous Denmark Street Big Band based in London’s West End.

Richard Shelton (Emmerdale, Rat Pack Confidential) has performed on the greatest international stages including The Coliseum in London and Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, and regularly features on BBC radio.

His latest album,  ‘An Englishman in Love, in LA’ was recorded in Frank Sinatra’s studio B at Capital Studio’s in LA, using some of Sinatra’s musicians, and using Sinatra’s very own microphone. Richard even wears Sinatra’s actual tuxedo in performance – so this is no cheap imitation – Richard Shelton is Sinatra!

Shelton will be accompanied by The Denmark Street Big Band – founded by Musical Director and band leader Paul Burch. The band creates the same kind of energy, excitement and style as the great big bands of the past. Hand picked musicians with impeccable reputations and experience. Since 2013, they have been resident special events big band for the The Royal Opera House’s New Year’s Eve Celebrations. Members of the band regularly perform with some of the biggest names in the music industry including many famous West End Musicals.
