THE SHOW

Scotland’s King Of Easy Listening, Colin Scougall, is touring with a brand new show full of classic songs made famous by the great crooners of the 20th century.  The Glasgow born singer, who takes his craft seriously but not himself, will take you on a nostalgic trip through favourite melodies such as Fly Me To The Moon, Beyond The Sea and Unforgettable whilst paying tribute to popular male vocalists like Tom Jones, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Andy Williams, Matt Monro, Dean Martin and many more

- all accompanied by Colin’s amazing live band.

THE REVIEWS

Review - Colin Scougall: Rutherglen Town Hall 21 September 2019  A TRIBUTE TO THE GREAT CROONERS  I hear concert and theatre performers putting on a show in Rutherglen, Scotland, have some trepidation about what they can expect from the audience - staid, conservative sophistication can be a tough nut to crack, but Colin Scougall didn't need to worry about cracking nuts - the average age of this crowd was about 80 years of age.  Colin, 52, came out at 7.30 pm dressed in sparkly gold attire. He was joined by the his 8-piece band - 7 cool looking dudes and one wee lassie, (a broad spectrum of ages). Anyway, they were a tight, accomplished unit - tenor & alto saxophones, trombone, trumpet, keyboards, percussion, electric bass & electric guitar. Their show objective was to deliver some classic crooner songs from the 20th century.  Colin’s singing was the highlight - he has a very strong & polished voice - always very well controlled and had some witty repartee between songs. Even a problem with the microphone could not deter him from his mission to entertain the near sellout crowd to classic songs from Great Crooners.  The band seemed happy to be playing so many classic songs for us. It was clear that they were all very familiar with the material, loved it and were big fans. Their enthusiasm invigorated us. They conveyed the songs with earthy professionalism. The guitar work was faultless.  Colin did Sade’s ‘Smooth Operator’ as a special personal treat. It was really well done. A major highlight was a powerfully delivered 'Don’t Cry Out Loud'. We were all keen for that one and were not left wanting. Intermission arrived and many fled for a pee, pint & puff.  During the second half of the show song highlights were: 'Sweet Caroline' (which got many of the women folk up dancing), Lionel Ritchie’s 'Hello’, 'New York State of Mind', ‘Can’t Take My Eyes Off You’ & Frank Sinatra’s ‘My Way' - performed with great gusto.  At the end of the encore at 10.00 pm those that could in the crowd, were happy to give a standing ovation - a significant arthritic effort for most of them. The crowds shuffled their way out of the theatre, happy with the festoon of pleasant, good old fashioned tunes.  D Mayhew
