"The most exciting thing in cabaret today, Joanna Strand and Jacqueline Tate are the perfect vocal duo. Jacqui is a natural comedienne and Joanna effortlessly elegant at all times. The result is an act should be compared to that of Julie Andrews and Carol Burnett".

James Lessiter, Cabaret News

Tonight's singers share a plethora of west end, opera and jazz credits, including Phantom of the Opera (where these ladies of song first met and where Joanna is now performing), Avenue Q, South Pacific, Master Class, Jekyll and Hyde and Allegro.
