The Paul James Band Bring Their Great American Songbook ‘Sisters Of Swing’ Show To Sage Gateshead

(Press release)
Kick-start Christmas with glamour and swing – plus a chance to win free tickets.
A North East band who’ve performed around the world as well as for stars including Alan Shearer and Ant and Dec are bringing their unique swing show to Sage Gateshead this Christmas.
The Great American Songbook ‘Sisters of Swing’ event on 1 December promises to be a glamorously entertaining night, guaranteed to kick-start the festive season in style.
Laura Adams and The Paul James Band have already taken the glitzy show around the globe and now they can’t wait to present it to their fellow Geordies.
The ‘Sisters Of Swing’ show is a tribute to the inspiring ladies who left a legacy of great swing music including Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Peggy Lee and Nina Simone and features Great American Songbook classics such as ‘The Lady Is A Tramp’, ‘Cry Me A River’ and ‘At Last’.
Laura and the band will also be swinging into Christmas with festive favourites such as ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’, ‘The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting)’ and ‘Winter Wonderland’.
Lead singer Laura said: “I was born and raised in the North East, so to sing at this amazing venue is a really big deal for me. We’ll be aiming to create some real magic to kick start the festive season in style.”
Laura has enchanted audiences on board cruise ships, in theatres and at top venues across the UK.   She’s also performed at celebrity weddings and high-profile charity balls with clients including Ant and Dec, Marco Pierre White, Anton du Beke and Alan Shearer.
She added: “We’ve been lucky enough to perform at some fantastic events over the years, and performing at Sage Gateshead is going to be a real highlight too. We can’t wait.”
