Produced with Red Bridge Arts. Following a sold out series of shows in 2017 with “Midnight at The Oasis”, Spatz & Co Showband return to the stage for their 2018 extravaganza “Something in the Air …..” Turntable started when MJ McCarthy and his Great Aunt Kathleen – 55 years his senior – connected over a stack of vinyl. Since then the Turntable team have toured her record case around Scotland, inviting listeners of all ages to investigate its contents whilst reflecting on the importance of music in their lives. Performed by Michael John, Turntable features music, stories, audience interaction and guest speakers. The performance explores memory, identity, family and most importantly of all, the joy of music. 'The show will make you smile, laugh, feel moved but most of all put a tap in your foot and a song in your heart.' ***** Edinburgh Reporter Spatz & Co’s bandleader and vocalist Roy Mac says “Our shows span 60 years of music making, from the 1930s to the 1990s. From Broadway and London West End to radio and TV, we bring together iconic Big Band sounds. Get ready to enjoy R & B, Swing, Latin, Pop, Jazz, Rat Pack and American Songbook- all with a Spatz & Co twist! The audience never knowing what to expect next – it’s all part of the fun!” Spatz & Co have individually worked with Elton John, The Drifters, Deep Purple and many, many more. Get ready for a great night of music!

Afghanistan: 2009. Ryan is there to see the world, learn a trade, get a life. Training's complete, combat is a buzz. But on one particular hot and desperate tour of duty, Ryan sees things he can’t talk about, to anyone. And when he returns home, the trouble really begins. A Brave Face explores Post-Traumatic Stress, an unseen and often unrecognised injury of war, and the impact it can have on even the closest of families. With compassion and fearlessness, Vamos brings its trademark, wordless, full mask style to a story that needs to be told. “***** Quite simply, a triumph” Inquire “Outstanding” Time Out “Catch it while you can” The Stage BOOK ONLINE AT www.eastwoodparktheatre.co.uk OR CALL 0141 577 4956 ERCultureandLeisure @ERCL4
