The Magnificent AK47 and a "Swing Orchestra" collaboration? Really??

It's not often that the worlds of Swing Bands and BlokeSong coincide but when they do you can anticipate something special.

We have been approached by The London Swing Orchestra who are playing a special St Georges Day matinee at the Wiltshire Music Centre in Bradford on Avon on Sunday 23rd April starting at 3pm -

It is a Celebration for the Feast of St George: Mad Dogs & Englishmen - Graham Dalby director and the fantastic London Swing Orchestra bring you a special St George's Day programme, featuring vintage hits from the 1930s and 1940s as played by the Great British dance bands. This elegant matinée includes songs by Noël Coward, Flanders and Swann and Cole Porter. It will be a warming and nostalgic tribute to the English: to their pride, to their quirky humour and, above all, to their heartfelt love for this sceptred isle.

It also includes The Magnificent AK47 performing two songs as part of the show - The Vly and a sea shanty (or might be Shed) and it sounds like a lot of fun and builds relationships for future possible collaboration.

Bizarrely enough we were contacted by the main organiser because of all the You Tube versions of The Vly out there - he liked ours best.  Strange world, that there t'internet...
