Ray Gelato, one of the Queen’s favourite musicians, returns to Ipswich next year.

Known as the Godfather of Swing, he’s the lead act in new show The Raspberry Cannoli Cabaret, being brought to the region by events promoter Mister Jack.

Inspired by a New York, Italian-American club, there will be live music, dancing, cabaret and burlesque. You can see it at the Corn Exchange on May 25. Early bird tickets are £20.18.

A spokesman for Mister Jack said: “We are very excited to be working with Ray again. The show is set to dazzle audiences once again, bringing elements of mystery and escapism to the stage and transporting the audience to a different time and place. Expect an evening of pure spectacle, with dancing, cocktails and enigmatic mystique.”

Ray, front-man for Ray Gelato and the Giants, added they were looking forward to performing with some incredible acts which will be announced early in 2018.
