GET ready to swing in time, because the finest musicians from the Royal Air Force are bringing their talents to Southend.

To mark the 70th anniversary of the founding of the US Air Force, the Royal Air Force’s finest musicians will perform a Stars & Stripes flavoured musical tribute to their fellow aviators on this year’s RAF in Concert production.

RAF in Concert, American Legends, will be on at the Cliffs in Friday December 1

With Big Band numbers from the swing era, Rock & Roll, Motown and classics from the Great American Songbook, music legends from the United States have helped provide the soundtrack to our lives over the past seven decades.

The band will take audiences back in time through the past seven decades - from Sinatra to Streisand, Basie to Bernstein, the programme of music includes Send in the Clowns, Hoe Down, Stars & Stripes March and I Left My Heart in San Francisco

Tour organiser, Tina Outlaw said: “We’ve brought together a fantastic programme of music to really celebrate the great American legends and the influence their music has had on all our lives over the past 70 years. From Sinatra to Elvis and Dolly Parton, the audiences are set for a fantastic evening”.

The US Air Force was formed as a separate branch of the U.S. Armed Forces on September 18, 1947 under the National Security Act of 1947
