What the world needs now

A tribute to the songs of Burt Bacharach

Burt Bacharach achieved three Academy Awards, six Grammy Awards, and an Emmy, showcasing his exceptional talent and influence. His songs have been performed by over 1,000 recording artists, reflecting his significant impact. In the United States alone, he amassed an impressive 73 top 40 hits. Collaborating predominantly with lyricist Hal David, Burt Bacharach was an extraordinary artist who passed away on February 8th at the age of 94. However, his musical legacy continues to thrive.

Stirling and his Lounge Band take you on a magical musical journey through four decades of wonderful tunes and arrangements from one of the greatest composers of the 20th Century, with classic songs made famous by legendary artists such as Dionne Warwick, Herb Alpert, Tom Jones, Neil Diamond and many more.

It’s a musical tribute to the unforgettable tunes and harmonic arrangements of the brilliant Bacharach-David songwriting team – and your guests will be tapping their feet and singing along to the feel-good vibe of the Bacharach sound.
