A Salute to one of the most successful orchestras in the world

James Last

This spectacular brand new show consists of almost nonstop and unforgettable numbers from the revered swing era (Woodchoppers ball, in the mood Sing Sing Sing) to the more popular vocal and instrument numbers of today ( my heart will go on .How deep is you love. Sweet Caroline) add to this classical favorites, ( Nesson Dorma )  iconic film ( Star Wars, James Bond )  and theatre music all played  in that Happy Music Style that made James  Last famous.     .

 

James Last is reported to have sold an estimated 200 million albums worldwide in his lifetime and was the second best ever album charting artiste, after Elvis Presley

His  trademark sound was called “Happy Music” and employed big band arrangements of well-known tunes which made him the "most commercially successful bandleader" of the second half of the 20th century  

 

 .    With Mike James Orchestra containing arguably the most highly-talented, enthusiastic and energetic musicians and singers in this country then you have a virtual non-stop show of party atmosphere. This new show is delivered in a style that encourages audience participation from the first few bars of the opening number is lead by the earthy charm and boyish enthusiasm of Mike James himself, one of Britain’s best and most enduring band leaders.

In summary, if the audience does not instantly respond and join in with the proceedings, then it’s something of a rarity.  For a Mike James concert is one of those not-to-be-missed nights of unforgettable music magic and the Happiest show on earth.
