Shows in September 2021

John Lydon

SUNDAY 19th SEPTEMBER 7.30pm

John L 001

He’s a legend and an Icon, a revolutionary and an immortal. John Lydon – aka Johnny Rotten – changed the face of music and sparked a cultural revolution. The front man and lyricist of the Sex Pistols and Public Image Ltd (PIL) caused a political earthquake and transformed music for good.

To coincide with the publication of his new book, the brilliant, funny and insightful I Could Be Wrong, I Could Be Right, he is touring the UK. Lydon will talk about how he sees life, along with his unique and extraordinary career, and take audience questions during a pyrotechnic, one-off tour.

Signed books will be available to buy at the venue which John will pre-sign. He WILL NOT be signing them at any pre/after showtime.

Nick Ross Orchestra-Glenn Miller & Rat pack Era

SATURDAY 25th SEPTEMBER 7.30pm

NRO03a

On Saturday 10th February 1990, the Nick Ross Orchestra played its first ever concert at the West Cliff Theatre, Clacton. The NRO proved to be an immediate success and Nick and his orchestra have continued to be a regular feature of the West Cliff programme ever since.

Some 31 years after their debut appearance, Nick and the band will be presenting “Sounds of the Glenn Miller & Rat Pack era” at the West Cliff on Saturday 25th September 2021 @ 7.30pm.

NRO02

Many years before the Beatles stepped onto the world’s most famous zebra crossing, Glenn Miller made his last known recording at London’s Abbey Road Studios on Monday 27th November 1944, just a few short weeks before he “disappeared” on December 15th of that same year. It was especially poignant to be able to bring the NRO into those same studios to make a new CD for you almost 75 years later.

NRO001

The lights soften, the mood settles. An audience waits for that first moment of sound. The Big Band is poised, relaxed, but with eyes anxious for the lead. And then, as if giving body to an echo, the murmured notes of ‘Moonlight Serenade’… and the night, it seems, is suddenly full and timeless.

There are those who watch and listen who tap a shy finger to the melodies, others who follow with a silent foot-beat, still others who murmur softly through the lyrics, and those who simply permit a fleeting smile. But common to all are memories.

Recapture the sounds of a bygone era as the Nick Ross Orchestra presents ‘an unmissable evening of music and song’ – the Classic Big Band Sound of the 1940s & 50s.
