The Definitive Burt Bacharach Songbook

Ballroom | Sheffield City Hall

JOHN REILLY and THE SMOOTH OPERATORS perform The Definitive Burt Bacharach Songbook with Musical Director – Lewis Nitikman

Following hugely successful, sold-out concerts both in Sheffield and Liverpool over the last few years, Britain’s finest song writers and session musicians are looking forward to performing their ‘Definitive Burt Bacharach’ show in the Ballroom in Sheffield’s magnificent City Hall.


It’s a sophisticated master class in melody, honouring Burt Bacharach, writer of one of America’s greatest songbooks for artistes such as Dionne Warwick, Cilla Black, Dusty Springfield, Aretha Franklin, Elvis Presley, Gene Pitney, The Carpenters and so many more.


Atlantic recording artist John Reilly fronts this concert with his spiritual and soulful vocals and with hand-picked world class session players who usually back artists such as Paul Carrack and Take That. Female vocals are elegantly performed by Miss Rachel Raynor and the Musical Director overseeing this dazzling non-stop parade of classic songs is Canadian pianist and composer Lewis Nitikman.
