Spatz & Co Showband

Escape to the fictional tropical nightclub ‘The Oasis’ for a show of music and song from Scotland’s premier showband.

From Glenn Miller to Acker Bilk; from Sinatra to Paul Simon; from Ray Charles to Billy Joel; from Bacharach to Lennon and McCartney; from Chuck Berry to Stevie Wonder, and more!

Uniquely, every band member is a bandleader and an accomplished soloist in their own right, with special expertise that spans big band, swing, rhythm and blues, jazz, funk, rock and roll, and Latin-American. Gus Andrews (trumpet) toured with The Drifters, Malcolm MacFarlane (guitar) toured with Shakatak and Jamie Cullum.
