"A joy from start to finish...a terrific set, bursting with energy, joy and charisma."

Fiona Coffey

Diane is a much-sought after singer on the London cabaret circuit, specialising in soul and jazz blues. Along with Phil she was a finalist in the London Gay Big Band's search for a star vocalist in 2014. As well as a renowned soloist she is also one half of 'Heart & Soul' with Miles Elliot, celebrating a shared love of soul classics from Motown to modern funk. Diane also appears on the 2017 Pride in London single, 'The Rest of Us', and the 'Cancer is a Drag' charity single, 'Christmas Time With You', both alongside Phil Lee-Thomas and a whole host of London cabaret stars.


Cardiff-born musical theatre actor, baritone and jazz cabaret stalwart Phil Lee-Thomas made his London cabaret debut at Crazy Coqs in 2016 with ‘Too Marvellous For Words‘ – the Johnny Mercer Songbook, since when he has appeared on numerous occasions throughout London, the continent and the States. His theatre credits include Joe Gillis (Sunset Boulevard), Dewi (The Distance) and as two very different doctors: Frank N Furter (The Rocky Horror Show) and Alec Harvey (Brief Encounter).

Reviews include, “Super smooth, velvet voice; he’s got it all going on” (Amy Lamé), and “Performs with great panache, humour and terrific audience response” (Harold Sanditen).
