Much about the James Bond films is iconic, with one of the most important elements being the music, from John Barry to David Arnold, Shirley Bassey to Madonna and, most recently, Thomas Newman and Adele joining the club.
When you hear those opening bars of Monty Norman’s main Bond theme you know you’re in for thrills, exotic locations, wonderful gadgets, Bond Girls, fast cars and of course those iconic characters who are loved by millions, Miss Moneypenny, M and of course Q.
The Bond themes are a signature element of the franchise; of course every spy needs his theme song. Written specifically to fit the new film and provide that extra helping of movie gold, this unique tradition has featured original performances from legends such as Shirley Bassey, Adele, Nancy Sinatra, Carly Simon, Paul McCartney, Duran Duran, Lulu and Alicia Keys to name but a few.
With this in mind, this concert is brought to you by the cream of top musicians plucked from leading orchestras and West End shows gathering to perform all the Bond Themes including Goldeneye, Diamonds Are Forever, Live and Let Die and the most recent addition, Skyfall. The big band sound is topped off by the stunning vocals of Kerry Schultz and fun facts, movie moments and big laughs are all provided by our comedic compere who presents the evening’s entertainment.
Kerry trained at the renowned Sylvia Young stage and theatre school and as one of the UK’s most naturally talented and gifted female vocalists has worked consistently in theatres and in some of the UK’s, function bands and as recording and session singer (her personal highlight being Chesney Hawkes!). For the last 10 years, Kerry has fronted Q The Music’s corporate work travelling extensively in the UK and abroad. In the National Entertainment Awards 2013 both the band and Kerry won awards, the latter for Best Female Vocalist.
Whether you’re a James Bond, big band or popular music fan, this show has something for everyone, outstanding musical scores, extraordinarily talented musicians, powerful vocals and some of the Bond-esk, tongue in cheek silliness that is expected along the way. Don’t miss out!
