What's On

Big Band Sinatra Show, 30th May 2010

If you are in Puerto del Carmen today then try and catch the only big band on Lanzarote at Mulligans Bar on the strip.

Sinatra Gig This show is only on once a month, on the last Sunday in the month.

I went at the end of April with my in laws who are Jazz aficionados and they couldn’t have been more impressed.

Colm Farrell, resident entertainer in Mulligan’s, sings with the band and it has always been his dream to put together a big band to do all the Sinatra numbers. This is a big band!

Comprising nine classically trained musicians, this is no ordinary pub gig!

It is a fabulous international mix of talents, with an Irish man fronting the band with Hungarian keyboard, clarinet and bass players, Lanzarote men on trumpet and drums, Dutch ever youthful septuagenarian on tenor sax, Cuban trombonist, and guitarist from Uruguay.

Only in Lanzarote would you find such an interesting mix of people. Plus they are only one of two orchestra bands in the Canaries at the moment.  read more »
