A celebration of the music of the legendary Nat King Cole will be held at the Stables Theatre on Sunday February 28 from 7.30pm.

Mike Hatchard and Pete Prescott are joining forces to present this evening of music from a true great.

Mike is an amazing pianist who has played for such stars as Matt Monro, Cleo Laine and Johnny Dankworth, Maxine Daniels and Tina May.

He is a songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist and singer, played on hundreds of sessions, and to add to that list of achievements he has just appeared in a one man play.

Pete has fronted and worked with bands internationally. After four years and three albums in Switzerland with Sergeant he came back to record the Forcefield album with drummer Cozy Powell. He made a number of albums with Paul Sinden. He released Loose Ends in 2005 (which featured Mike on several tracks). He has organised Beatles day since 2000 and is looking forward to this year’s event on April 3 at the White Rock Theatre.

They both share a love of Nat King Cole, one of the most influential jazz pianists but above all one of the greatest vocalists of all time. Tickets £13 plus concessions from 01424 423221 or www.stablestheatre.co.uk
