Win: Simply Big Band tickets for show at Sheffield City Hall - VIDEO

START spreading the news... the golden age of swing comes to Sheffield next month with Simply Big Band at the City Hall on Saturday February 26.

And we're giving you the chance to win a pair of tickets.

From the raging razzmatazz of Harlem's Cotton Club in the 1920s, to the halcyon post-war days of swing and Sinatra's bobby-sox girls and the glamorous glitz of Las Vegas in the swinging 60s, the show features a 26-piece orchestra and a roster of top guest singers showcasing the great American songbook.

Fans of the jive, salsa, lindy hop, tap and foxtrot will be transported back to a magical musical period when immortals such as Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Ray Charles ruled the boards, and legendary big band leaders like Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington and Quincy Jones were the musical masters of their generation.
