Product description

Review

"...an invaluable guide to negotiating the minefield of creating a cabaret act and making a career and living from it." Mark Shenton, Playbill

“...a fascinating insider’s handbook on how to nurture an audience for the kind of classic songbook fare that struggles to make itself heard in a world obsessed with The X Factor.” Clive Davis, The Times

"Not a text book.. but a treasure chest dripping with glittering gems of cabaret secrets!" Cabaret Scenes Magazine

"Don’t get worried about the title this isn’t another kiss and tell saga but a step by step guide to putting a show together with first hand knowledge from Gary and others in the business. It is a logical approach to an often difficult job that will reap rewards." Encore Magazine

"This is simply essential reading for upcoming and professional cabaret performers." Thanasis Kalantzis

About the Author

“Michael Bublé isn’t the only person keeping the Sinatra Flame alive,” so said the London Times of Gary Williams, cabaret doyen, star of the West End’s “Rat Pack” and soloist with leading big bands and concert orchestras including the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, the Melbourne Symphony, the BBC Big Band, Ireland’s RTE and the Lahti Sinfonia Finland.

Other work includes performing for The Prince of Wales at Buckingham Palace, ‘That’s Entertainment’ a tribute to the MGM musicals with the John Wilson Orchestra at the Royal Festival Hall, performing at Sinatra’s Palm Springs home for the LA Jazz Institute, Radio 2 with the BBC Concert Orchestra, ‘Winter Wonderland’ at the Royal Albert Hall, ‘A Swingin’ Session’ with the Nelson Riddle Orchestra in Los Angeles, ‘Big Band Wonderland’ at Ronnie Scott’s, ‘The Legend of Sinatra’ (UK tour), a tribute to the music of Fred Astaire presented by his daughter Ava, BBC Pebble Mill, Gloria Hunniford’s ‘Open House’ (with Donny Osmond and Burt Bacharach), the soundtrack for the Warner Bros’ motion picture ‘Mrs Ratcliffe’s Revolution’ and BBC1’s ‘Doctor Who Christmas Special’. Time Out described his 'Sinatra Jukebox' show as “An evening of old school virtuosity.”

As the author of 'Cabaret Secrets: How to create your own show, travel the world and get paid to do what you love', he's literally written the book on stage craft. It was described by David Ackert as, “a career GPS for cabaret performers.”

His three acclaimed Abbey Road studio albums prompted Oscar winning lyricist Don Black to say “In a world of Pop Idol mediocrity Gary Williams shines like a dazzling beacon” and the London Evening Standard called him, “The UK's leading standard bearer for the supercool era”.
