Liam O’Brien’s seasonal celebration of the swing era, Crooning at Christmas is one of Limerick's favourite nights out during the city's festive season.
Now an annual sell out at Dolan's Warehouse, he celebrates the show's fourteenth year in Limerick on Sunday December 23rd - with advance booking essential.
The former Emmerdale star is also one of Ireland's leading exponents of the classic crooning style - inspired by his West End leading role playing Dean Martin in "The Rat Pack - Live from Las Vegas" which toured the UK, Europe and right across America. He most recently debuted his new show SINATRA to great acclaim - on the 20th anniversary of the iconic singer right here at the Warehouse.
He regularly performs across Ireland with his own Million Dollar Swing Band, the Kings of Swing in the UK and most recently the renowned Black Magic Big Band in Galway. He has sung at the prestigious Roundhouse in London and a packed to the rafters Royal Albert Hall for ‘Carols with the Stars’.
Crooning at Christmas features classic songs such as Baby It’s Cold Outside, White Christmas, Let It Snow and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas along with newer tunes by artists such as Harry Connick Jr and Michael Bublé.
Fans of Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole will relish the swing sounds of the Million Dollar Swing Band - led by musical director Peter Hanagan.
For this year's concert, Liam is supported by West End star Shonagh Daly (Les Misérables) with more special guests to be announced soon.
