The Swingin' Martinis - Tuesday 4th May
With a double scoop of comedy, a generous serving of musical mayhem and good old slapstick; The Swingin’ Martinis have put together a cocktail that any self-respecting swinger will not want to miss out on! The duo, Johnny Reid and Vinny Nowell have worked together in various guises for over 20 years and it shows! They share the same dress sense (nothing less than a tuxedo) and from the moment, they enter the room, there is an electric energy and expertise to their show.
