The Swing Magic Revue starring Big Daddy Cool and The Swing Kittens is coming to The Palace Theater in Gallatin  for one night only Saturday June 16.

The Swing Magic Revue is described  by "Big Daddy Cool" himself, aka John Pyka, as "a musical variety revue that harkens back to the classic supper club floor shows of the 1940s. It is a full evening variety revue with a compelling story and something for every taste!"

Set in post-World War II Chicago, the show features swing music for the mid-20th Century, award-winning magic and illusion, and high energy swing dance. Songs include "It Don't Mean A Thing," "In The Mood," "Jump Jive & Wail," "Blues In The Night" and many more hit songs from the mid-20th Century.

The Swing Magic Revue stars John Pyka as "Big Daddy Cool" Johnny Dellarocca, the larger than life king of swing who holds court at the infamous Club Roxy. The Swing Magic Revue also stars Brandy Sunshine, Sophia Prose and Crystal Starr as The Swing Kittens-the femme fatale singers and dancers of Club Roxy.

Nashvillian Pyka created the show that has toured nationally and even been produced off-Broadway in New York City.

"I'm excited to bring this show back to the Palace" says Pyka. "We performed at The Palace for a capacity crowd during the 2011 season and are excited to return to what has become our home theater!"

The Swing Magic Revue swings into Gallatin Saturday June 16 for one night only; tickets are only $10 online, by phone, and at the box office the night of the show. Reserved VIP tickets are available for only $15 and include a pre-show reception backstage with the cast. To reserve tickets call (615) 854-5459 or visit www.bigdaddycoolshows.com.
