Denis King, Sarah Eyden, Dave Olney and Mike Smith, aka ‘Love Is In The Room’ are excited to be hitting the road in 2019 for their first UK and European tour!
‘LOVE IS IN THE ROOM – LIVE’ is set to captivate audiences with a fantastic blend of laid back jazz and easy listening music combined with uplifting original melodies by Denis King and well known songs by legendary performers with whom the band have worked. (Tony Bennett, Judy Garland, Sammy Davis Junior) With award winning composer and pianist Denis King, the stunning and soaring notes from vocalist Sarah Eyden, the UK’s leading concert and studio session drummer Mike Smith and the very highly regarded concert and studio session player Dave Olney on bass, it really promises to be a show not to be missed! Wit and humour, consummate musicianship, and a love for good songs all come together to create a highly entertaining show.
In the 50’s and early 60’s, Denis King was a member of Britain’s massively successful first boy band, The King Brothers. Since then he has composed over two hundred TV themes, including ITV’s Ivor Novello award-winning theme to Black Beauty and countless other instantly recognisable TV works. He has collaborated with many music and theatre legends and has written over 25 stage musicals and show tunes, many of which are included in this brand new live show. In addition to his musical talents, he is renowned for having a great sense of humour and tells some very funny stories! (Check out this video of some of Denis King’s most memorable moments:
Sarah Eyden is a former member of The Swingle Singers. Sarah has sung on over 200 hundred Hollywood film soundtracks and has worked with orchestras worldwide in some of the greatest concert halls with the worlds greatest conductors. She is currently on tour as solo vocalist with The Syd Lawrence Orchestra. A recent review by the Ted Heath UK tour really says it all, reiterating Sarah’s incredible talent but also her warm audience rapport: “Her voice is controlled, intonation perfect and wit and humour and added extra – she is truly an all round entertainer”.
Finally and by no means least, Mike Smith and Dave Olney. Both are highly skilled and sought after in the industry, especially given the extensive list of playing credits
they have to their names. Mike has played for Shirley Bassey, Elaine Paige, Michael Ball, Katherine Jenkins, Robbie Williams, the BBC Concert Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra to name just a few! Dave has played for Scott Walker, Cliff Richard, Hank Marvin, Olivia Newton-John, Dionne Warwick, the BBC Big Band and the Syd Lawrence Orchestra… and again the list goes on.
‘Love Is In The Room’ features some of the UK’s finest musicians who have played with the best and for the best. Denis, Sarah, Dave and Mike LOVE the music, LOVE what they do and cannot wait to get the tour underway to share it all with you LIVE!
