The unique “feel-good” 1940’s show, as featured at Dame Vera Lynn’s Charity Gala Nights and performed for Dad’s Army original cast! Famous War-Time tunes & “sing-a-long” songs brought to life by the singers and multi-instrumentalists of the “Five Star Swing” band, ("Superb, they swing like crazy!” – Sheila Tracy, BBC).

Featuring Simone from the latter days of the Ivy Benson Orchestra plus Chris Smith (Jnr) composer and arranger for Glenn Miller’s Brother, Herb and the BBC Radio Big Band.

Producers and performers, Chris & Simone Smith, have for the past seven years been successfully touring their shows – “Swing ‘n’ Sinatra”, “In The Mood”, “Five Star Swing”, “The Big Band” and now “Hits from the Blitz”.

Chris says – “This band perfectly provides a genre that is already proving very popular with bookings for next year, exceeding our past records ! It has great “feel-good” appeal.
