Trafford’s best known crooner Wayne Devlin, who recently recieved the British Citizen Award for Services to the Arts, will be performing live at Mulino restaurant in Urmston for a very special night of songs from the Great American Songbook.

During the event Wayne will dedicate a section of the evening to salute iconic singing legend Tony Bennett who turns 96 years old on that day with a selection of Bennett classics including his hit single.”I Left My Heart In San Francisco.”

Wayne recently sang continuously for 24 hours to honour Tony Bennett, who is living with Alzheimer’s disease, raising £9,000 for the Alzheimer’s Society in the process. He later received the official seal of approval from Bennett who praised him across his social media.

Also on the evening Wayne will pay tribute to local crooner Arthur ‘Arty’ Plumb who saddly passed away recently. 

Wayne said. “Arty was really well known in the area. He was a lovely man that I was proud to call my friend, we both shared a deep passion for crooning. We sang together on a number of occasions and I’m deeply saddened that I will never be able to do so again. I send my deepest condolences to all of Arty’s family and friends and will do my best to honour and salute him by singing a few of his favourite songs. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.”

The event will take place on August 3rd at Mulino restaurant on Primrose Avenue in Urmston. Wayne will sing from 7pm to 7.45pm and then again from 8.15pm to 9pm.
