After the recent success of our show at the Live Theatre, we’re very much looking forward to our next Great American Songbook show in December.

This time we’re at the prestigious Sage Gateshead and are made-up that in the first few days of the tickets going on sale already 100 have been sold.

Sell-Out Live Theatre Show

We’ve been overwhelmed by the support and kind words sent to us after our recent show at the Live Theatre.

To have so many people come along from as far as Aberdeen, Dundee and Northampton and finish the evening with a standing ovation made this a magical night for us and raised a considerable amount for a great cause.  THANK YOU!
