Todd performs his tribute to Tony

Todd Gordon pays tribute to Tony Bennett through an Eastgate Theatre show devoted to the songs that made the legendary crooner famous.

Among them will be I Wanna Be Around, Smile and I Left My Heart in San Francisco.

Todd’s breakthrough came when a karaoke performance on a work night out received a positive reaction, leading to him joining a jazz vocal workshop in Edinburgh. Todd opened for Dionne Warwick at the Edinburgh Jazz Festival in 2003.

He has performed joint concerts with jazz greats including Jacqui Dankworth, Carol Kidd, Claire Martin, Tina May, Juliet Roberts, Ian Shaw, Clare Teal and Anita Wardell and broadcast on BBC Radio 2 and 3.

The show is at 7.30pm on Friday, January 21. Tickets cost £13 (£11) - phone 01721 72577 for more details.
