Frank meets Peggy celebrates the songs of The Great American Songbook, with songs like, Come Fly With Me and The lady is a Tramp, seen through the eyes of three iconic artists from the era - Franks Sinatra and Miss Peggy Lee, accompanied by the sound of the Count Basie Orchestra.

A show set in the grand era of a style of music that has never lost its lustre, woven together by a moving narrative, original musical arrangements, imagery, and snapshots of the day that witnesses the true era of swing.

You will hear all your favourite Sinatra tunes brought to life through the outstanding talents of Mr. Eugene Wolfin.

Add to the mix, songs of the incomparable Miss Peggy Lee performed with love and affection by Ms Erna Ferry.

Accompanying these world-class vocalists is the sound of the Count Basie Orchestra, performed by New Zealand’s own Rodger Fox Big Band.
