Jazz on Broadway

A group of Wellington’s hottest jazz singers and musicians present a celebration of the golden era of music in a fun-filled and high energy variety show. The Retro Pack have presented award-winning shows in the past at jazz festivals and at Circa Theatre including ‘Blue Eyes’; a tribute to Frank Sinatra, ‘Unforgettable – the Story of Nat King Cole’ and ‘The Glory of Gershwin’ which featured in the Wellington Jazz Festival in 2016.

This time The Retro Pack pay tribute to Broadway’s brightest lights. The famed avenue has been home to some of the most talented and sophisticated composers, many with jazz-oriented roots. Harold Arlen, Jerome Kern and Irving Berlin are three of the most significant theatrical composers of the early 20th century; represented on Broadway hundreds of times. Cole Porter, Stephen Sondheim, Rodgers and Hart have penned time-tested musical gems that continue to uplift and entertain – on stage and on record by music legends such as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Michael Bublé, and Diana Krall among others.

Curtain up!  Light the lights! For a New York state of mind.

CDs available pre-show, post-show and during intervals, cash sales only

The Retro Pack is a true variety act with multiple, highly talented and acclaimed singers and musicians and a carefully selected repertoire of songs that audiences love and can sing along to.  The onstage dynamic and banter between the performers is completely infectious and gets the audience tapping their toes, laughing, and reminiscing.
