The Ladies of Swing is a show paying tribute to the amazing women who brought Swing and Jazz to the World. Expect to hear songs made famous by all the top Ladies of Swing from the 1920s right through to the 1950s - including Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Nina Simone and the Andrews Sisters to name just a few.
I think Ladies of Swing is great for people who are interested in music from 1920s to 1950s. Personally I prefer shows with acting and dancing as well as music but I can see why people are interested and enjoy music based shows. Artists during the second world war were writing songs to keep people happy during very sad times, this still relates to audiences today.
What Went Well
The guy that was playing the piano didn’t make any mistakes. I was able to tell that the notes he was playing was pretty hard and he managed to play them perfectly. The ladies also had great voices and they also nailed their notes as well.
Even Better If
I think that if they had more space and practiced switching positions more than they would have switched even smoother.
What I Would Have Done To Improve
When the ladies were doing their solo songs I think it would have been better if there was one beam of light shining on them to make everyone look at the singer. I also think the colours should have changed during the songs to make the performance more vivid.
