Black is Back – live and ready to swing
04/07/14 & 05/07/14
Inspired by his time on BBC’s The Voice, Merthyr Tydfil’s Swing Singing Super Hero, Paul Black, has taken his stage show to the next level – recruiting a 13 piece live band to back him in what he hopes will become a nationwide theatre show.
Speaking about this next step in his career, Paul explains why his first two shows, on 4th and 5th July, are going to be in his hometown. “Following my appearance on The Voice, there has been so much local support and enthusiasm that I felt I wanted to give something back. We so often get lumbered with such negative, grey, stereotypes here in the Valleys that I really wanted to inject a bit of Las Vegas glitz and glamour – if only for 2 nights”.
With promises of burlesque dancers, fire eaters and bi-lingual support artists Paul is certainly fusing both cultures in what promises to be a night to remember.
A strong advocate of promoting his home town, Paul has given his time freely to such projects as ‘We Love Merthyr’ where his humorous portrayal of ‘The Werewolf of Merthyr’ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9mATFIUYo0) has gained him many internet fans.
