SWEDISH SENSATION GUNHILD CARLING RETURNS TO TUCSON SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 30
FOR ONE SPECIAL EVENT/PERFORMANCE AT SKYLINE COUNTRY CLUB
Swedish jazz superstar Gunhild Carling will sing, dance, and play the night away on Sunday, September 30 at the Skyline Country Club ballroom as pop-up supper club Mister Bing’s Presents hosts an evening of fine dining and entertainment.
A virtuoso on TWENTY-FIVE different instruments – including trumpet, trombone, harmonica, oboe, flute, and jazz bagpipe, plus singing and tap dancing – Gunhild Carling is an artist like no other. Her influences include everyone from Billie Holiday to Louis Armstrong and everything in between. She performs around the globe and has collaborated extensively with renowned ensemble Postmodern Jukebox. Her rendition of Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” has scored more than 1.3 million views on YouTube, and views of Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” – complete with jazz bagpipe solo – exceeds 1.5 million.
“We had a blast when Gunhild came to Tucson last April,” says the evening’s musical director and keyboard player, Khris Dodge. “The audience couldn’t believe what it was seeing. Gunhild would sing a verse of a classic jazz tune, then suddenly play the most amazing trumpet solo you’ve ever heard, and then follow it up with tap dancing…all within the same song. She kept us musicians on our toes all night long with her boundless energy.”
Something of a national treasure in her native country, the versatile Carling performed for the King of Sweden’s 70th birthday celebration. She also appeared on Season 11 of America’s Got Talent, took third place in the 2014 celebrity version of the Swedish television show Let’s Dance, and has played for audiences around the globe. She has spent a large part of 2018 performing around Europe, and her stop in Tucson will be her only Arizona date as part of her United States tour.
Mister Bing’s Presents, in partnership with Khris Dodge Entertainment and Stuart Moulton Entertainment, brings you an extraordinary supper club experience in the Skyline Ballroom. Executive Chef Brian Steiner and his team will prepare a special three-course menu for the evening, and the pre-dinner cocktail hour will feature master magicians and dancers from the Fred Astaire Dance Studio Tucson. The classic Hollywood show clubs of the 40s will come back to life against the elegant background of the Tucson skyline.
“Mister Bing’s is about creating an experience for our patrons,” says the eponymous host and founder of the pop-up supper club. “We transport our audiences back in time to glamorous, old-world Hollywood and give them an evening unlike any other they’ll get in Tucson.”
