The Swan Theatre, The Moors, Worcester Sept 14th 2013
After amazing reviews and sell out shows since 2008, Steve Maitland is coming ‘home’ for his 3rd consecutive year with his tribute show to Canadian Crooner Michael Buble. Steve is back again with the fabulous 16 piece Big Band 'In The Pink' from Bournemouth
In this rescheduled show from March, Steve has been able to get not one, but two support acts, ‘52nd Street’ and ‘Voices Unlimted’ and Yes, you have seen them together before so some of you may know what you can expect!!
Through timeless classic standards of Come Fly With Me, Me and Mrs Jones to Cry Me A River and the UK hits, Lost, Home, Everything and Haven’t Met You Yet.
After Mr Buble’s SELL OUT Tour at the O2, and new No1 Album this show will encapsulate all of the finest moments from his live shows. The aim is to give the audience a fabulously entertaining evening, not just to come along and see a show, but to be part of the show...this is one show not to miss this year.
A donation from the show will be given in support of Worcester Breastcare Support Group

Michael Buble and In The Pink Big Band Tribute
Review By : Andrew Booth May 2011
So a Michael Buble tribute finally hit Mr Kyps.
Truly an inspired and different piece of selection by Mr K! http://www.mrkyps.net/
What really made this tribute for me was the 16 piece orchestra which accompanied him. In the Pink Big Band http://www.facebook.com/
Without that if he had just sung to a backing track the evening would have been very good. This band lifted it another level, their sound filling the hall.
Conducted by a very bouncy blonde lady (who also played sax) the band were tight and punchy in their delivery. The guy playing Michael Steve Maitland did have the trademark suit and black tie and a great voice.
The first half began with ‘Cry Me A River‘, It Had Better Be Tonight’ ‘Home’, then a few standards –‘Try A Little Tenderness’, ‘Sway’, ‘Save The Last Dance For Me’, sandwiched between ‘Everything’
The returning Michael then did one of my all time favourite songs-‘Moondance’
Then we got ‘Haven’t Met You Yet’, ‘Stuck In The Middle’ and ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’ plus ‘Feeling Good’.
His Finale went very Frank Sinatra with ‘That’s Life’, ‘New York New York’ and ‘All of Me’.
The whole evening was Guilty Pleasure songs to produce one big Guilty Pleasure.
The audience were baying for more but all good things must come to an end and hopefully this good thing will hopefully be rebooked for a repeat performance very soon. Pure uplifting bliss !!!!
