Returning to the Crazy Coqs after this year's sell-out run, star of the West End's 'Rat Pack' Gary Williams invites you to a "A Swingin' Christmas".

Join us for an old fashioned Christmas, just like the ones we used to know! Take a sleigh ride with Gary and pianist Matt Regan and celebrate in style with festive favourites from Andy Williams, Mel Tormé, Nat 'King' Cole and Frank Sinatra. Packed with the all time holiday classics like Let It Snow, White Christmas, White Christmas, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and many more.

Gary Williams has performed as a soloist with leading big bands and concert orchestras including the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, the Melbourne Symphony, the BBC Big Band, Ireland's RTE and the Lahti Sinfonia Finland. He toured the UK in 'The Legend of Sinatra' and in the tribute to the music of Fred Astaire, which was presented by his daughter Ava. As a headline act on the world's luxury cruise liners, he has visited over 60 countries. His recent album paying tribute to Sinatra was Jazz FM's Album of the Week and has been released in Japan. His "best of" CD (featuring highlights of his Abbey Road recordings), prompted Oscar winning lyricist Don Black to say, "In a world of Pop Idol mediocrity Gary Williams shines like a dazzling beacon". www.garywilliams.co.uk
