» Review: The Pink Sinatra

In the intimate surroundings of the New Steine Hotel we were treated to a cabaret of songs from old blue eyes. And indeed, Scott Free does have those twinkling blue eyes. He pretty much has all of Sinatra’s telltale phrasing and mannerisms off pat, too. Not that it is a slavish impersonation – well for a start, Frank was never gay, was he? Choosing a selection of his greatest hits but including a few less well known numbers was a great idea, too. From time to time he was joined on stage by a dancer who was clearly held back by the lack of space, but this did nothing to detract form the fact that this show is pure fun and she certainly added to that. I felt that the entire thing would have been raised a bar had there not been flashing lights behind the act and had the format been perhaps darker and the seating more cabaret style with small tables and chairs, perhaps candle-lit. But these are small points compared to the obvious vocal talents of this man and his easy, natural charm.

» Brighton Lights 31

Our new programme for thelatest.tv sees Juice FM presenter Guy Lloyd investigate all manner of things. He starts off with chart-topping band The Hoosiers who were mega-successful a couple of years ago, were dropped by their major label and have become fashionably independent. Their chart-topping album cost £1 million to record, their new album £100 and we reckon it's just as good. We have exclusive footage of this new record. Guy does crazy-golfing with them, checks out their sound-check and witnesses the fans' adoration of the band at Audio in Brighton. In future shows Guy will be doing waxing, Dot Cotton, air guitar and needs your suggestions for more crazy things (or people) to do. Send to bill@thelatest.co.uk
