About

The Silver Ghosts, whose upbeat swing performances have previously effected exhilarating 'Boardwalk Empire/Gatsby' style atmospheres at venues like Ronnie Scott's bar, The Savoy, and St. Martin-in-the-Fileds, are offering you the opportunity to delight in their upbeat experience with an accompanying meal in the Verdi restaurant within the resplendent enclaves of The Royal Albert Hall. On this occasion they will be performing as a quintet. First set 12pm noon £31.50 incl. 2 courses & a welcome drink The choice of numbers mixes fun and interesting obscurities that were big hits of the period, performing a mix of high spirited winners and adding familiar swingin' faves for your dancing pleasure. Verdi - Italian Kitchen at the Royal Albert Hall 'Exceptional good value all round, with the majesty of the building around you.' BA High Life Casual dining and authentic flavours of Italy in one of London's most iconic settings. Open for lunch and dinner, Verdi Italian Kitchen at the Royal Albert Hall offers delicious food, a relaxed atmosphere and warm service in a spectacular setting. It's the perfect place to wind down, laugh and eat well with friends and family over a bottle of great Italian wine and satisfyingly authentic food. The Silver Ghosts live performance The repertoire evokes the breathless and high spirited dance gigs of the 1920s 30s and 40s. A weave of quirky, upbeat numbers like Rose Murphy's 'Busy Line', the risque 'Jack I'm Mellow', polite dance orchestrations like 'My Woman' and Harry Warren's sophisticated 'Too Many Tears', together with some familiar standards but performed in their original 'pre cold war', jazz ensemble style. The outfit is normally a 7 piece swing orchestra, but will be performing as a quintet on this occasion. Over the past few years the outfit has performed at high profile venues like Ronnie Scott's bar, The 100 Club, and The Savoy as well as having the fortuity to have recorded a session for the BBC at the beautiful Art Deco premises at Bush House, just before the latter moved to their new location.
