Swing music and great food at Stock: book now

After the success of our Stock Opera Night we’ve got another rare treat for you in one of Manchester’s grandest dining spaces.

Thursday 19 August will see a special Confidential night with a six piece Swing Band bringing big tunes to one of the North’s best Italian restaurants.

Along with the band you’ll also enjoy the voice of Paul Pashley (click here for a video), one of the smoothest singers around. Pashley’s serenaded folk all over the world, his voice pure velvet power bringing out the best from classic swing/big band songs.

His CV is impressive by the way and includes the Rooney’s Italian wedding reception, a Manchester United Champions League Final Aftershow, the MEN Theatre Awards and appearances at events at Liverpool FC, the Co-op, Five Stars Charity and across the globe in Bahrain, Scandinavia, the States and elsewhere.

OK magazine said of the Rooney wedding appearance: ‘'As if the view itself wasn't enough of a treat, British newcomer Paul Pashley took to the miniature stage to sing a mix of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Matt Monro classics, all carefully chosen by the newlyweds - even the grandparents were on their feet.’ June 30, 2008.

Tickets for this event cost £55 each for readers, with a £15 deposit to secure your place. People will be seated in gala-style tables of 10 and wine can be pre-ordered. (click here to view the wine list).

The evening will run like this:
7.30pm arrival at Stock – with glass of Prosecco

5 courses

Dress code: Black tie

3 x 35 minute sets plus live background music while dining.

Here’s some feedback from the Opera night at Stock:

“Just wanted to say what a lovely night we had at The 3 Tenors we met lovely people on our table and have even arranged a potential night out at the opera with our new friends.”

“We really enjoyed the night, we thought the venue was beautiful, the back ground music was great, the three tenors were fabulous and the organisation was very good.”

“The evening was absolutely first class in every way, thoroughly delightful and excellent company.”

“Firstly, I’d like to say that it’s really great that Manchester Confidential are working hard to bring together different activities into an evening such as this. It really was a brilliant evening – fantastic entertainment, lovely food, and a beautiful setting! I would definitely go to another evening like this.”

“I thought that the evening was absolutely brilliant. I took my parents and they both loved it. Dinner was perfect - as I would have expected at Stock - and the music was so enjoyable - really well chosen and beautifully performed and I don't know how anyone could fail to be impressed by the decor, not to mention the acoustics in that room!”

“The Three Tenors night in Stock was one of the best nights of my life... The positives were many, but the highlights were obviously the Tenors who "blew the doors off" and were captivating to watch... I felt so privileged to be listening to these Tenors that when the next night comes along I will book immediately without looking at my diary because any clashing event won't be as good as this.”
