Our first concert since February 2020 featured Ali and the Swing Cats playing their own versions of numbers collectively known as the great American songbook. Composers such as George and Ira Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Duke Ellington and Jerome Kern often wrote these memorable tunes for the musical theatre and films.
The afternoon certainly went with a swing, garnering appreciative comments and warm applause from the socially-distanced audience.
Reformed over the Summer of 2021 in a trio line-up the band is now playing at private parties, weddings and village halls across the South West.
With Ali Foyle (jazz violin/vocals) are Al Falkingham (guitar/vocals) and Nick Strong (piano/ bass).
