AN UNASHAMED wallow in the songs written for Broadway and the West End of the 1920s and 30s is promised at The Radlett Centre this Sunday.

Michael Law’s Piccadilly Dance Orchestra (PDO) featuring 10 musicians and a female vocalist come on stage at 7.30pm with You’re The Top.

It features a cocktail of songs by Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, the Gershwin brothers, Noel Coward and friends.

The orchestra has been in demand wherever style and swinging music are required. Highlights have included several BAFTA Awards parties including special evenings for Julie Andrews and Sean Connery, West End Theatre first night parties and Earl Spencer’s 30th Birthday party, where Princess Diana asked Michael and the orchestra to play In The Mood.

In addition, they have performed at parties for Sir Paul Getty – at which Margaret Thatcher took to the dance floor – and Cunard themed a complete transatlantic cruise around the orchestra.

While much in demand as a dance orchestra, the PDO also tour theatres and concert halls with their concert programmes including sold-out performances at The Queen Elizabeth Hall, Cadogan Hall, Snape Maltings, Buxton Opera House and many other venues.

Tickets are £18 with concessions £16, available from the box office on 01923 859291 or go to www.radlettcentre.co.uk
