About Peter Milley’s Cairo Club Orchestra

Celebrating 30 years in the business, Peter Milley’s Cairo Club Orchestra has an excellent show lined up for Mother’s Day on Sunday 10th May at the Flying Saucer Club.

Spoil Mum by taking her along to this get-up-out-of-you-chair, 1920s-style performance. The Cairo Club Orchestra is unequalled in its ability to recreate the most popular hot music of that jazz era. There will be vintage microphones and hot hot hot solo work, as well as the well-honed musical skills of Nichaud Fitzgibbon. Some brand new tunes will also be added to the set – of course, they’ll be introduced with that trademark Cairo Club quirkiness we all know and love.

As it’s Mother’s Day, this one is going to be a little bit more special than normal. This performance offers the option of a lunch and show ticket. From 12:30pm, you’ll be served a delicious three-course meal before catching the stunning vocals of Nichaud Fitzgibbon and the accompanying Cairo Club Orchestra.

So bring along your mothers, your sisters and your misters, your brothers and your others for an afternoon you won’t want to miss.
