A hit across the South West, Mr Billington works regularly with some of the region's most talented musicians and now fronts popular swing band, 'All Jazzed Up'. His vocal influences include Cole and Sinatra, and more recently, Gregory Porter and Michael Bublé. He will be accompanied on the night by Philip Clouts on the piano.
