"Not only is he a brilliant singer; he also puts the audience at ease. A lot of artists are not good at being themselves when not singing - Gary is as relaxed chatting as he is singing, and he's funny too. Don't miss him." London What's On
"You make me feel drunk with smiles and happiness." Gaby Roslin BBC Radio London
Returning to the Crazy Coqs after last year's sell-out run with news songs for 2015, star of the West End's Rat Pack Gary Williams invites you to A SWINGIN' CHRISTMAS.
Take a sleigh ride with Gary and pianist Clive Dunstall and celebrate in style with festive favourites from Andy Williams, Mel Tormé, Nat 'King' Cole and Frank Sinatra. A performance packed with the all-time holiday classics including Let It Snow, 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 a tribute to the music of Fred Astaire, which was presented by his daughter Ava. 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."
