The West End’s favourite jazz-cabaret duo – Joanna Strand & Jacqui Tate – return to Crazy Coqs for an evening of comedy and song.

The Crazy Coqs – Brasserie Zedel Live 18th Feb 2018 at 19.00

Tate is currently performing the role of Madame Thenadier in Les Misérables and Strand has until recently been covering the role of Madame Giry in Phantom of the Opera and is now appearing in Rothschild and Sons at The Park Theatre. Tonight, our two West End Mesdames come together with their well-loved jazz duo show formula, with new arrangements of songs by Piaf, Porter, Arlen, Cy Coleman and many more.

“The most exciting thing in cabaret today, Strand & Tate are the perfect vocal duo. Tate is a natural comedienne and Strand is effortlessly elegant at all times. The result is an act that should be compared to that of Julie Andrews and Carol Burnett” – Cabaret News

Strand & Tate share a host of west end credits including Avenue QSouth PacificMaster Class, and Jekyll & Hyde.

The band member’s line-up John Bailey (piano), Romano Viazzani (accordion), Nick Pini (double bass) and Jason Reeve (drums).

CANCELLED – David Vaughan at The Pheasantry with Viazzani on Accordion – 3rd May 2016

David Vaughan - The Pheasantry - 3rd May 2016

The London Festival of Cabaret – David Vaughan


David Vaugahn The Pheasantry 6 Piece








Singer-Songwriter David Vaughan is back at The Pheasantry, King’s Road, Chelsea, London on Tuesday 3rd May 2016 at 8.30pm for The London Festival of Cabaret. Vaughan draws inspiration from the European chanson tradition and uses a unique blend of musical instruments to paint a wonderful palette of musical colours which underpin his original songs. Romano Viazzani on accordion, Daniel Broncano on clarinet and bass clarinet, Jason Reeve on drums, Tom Hewins on tuba and double bass and of course Vaughan himself on piano, guitar, trumpet and vocals. His music cannot easily be categorised and since there are very few if any record shops left, all of which compartmentalised music into narrow genres and therefore influenced the categories of music one used to listen to, it doesn’t matter a jot. Come along and be pleasantly surprised at many musical traditions guide Vaughan’s songs. All songs are masterfully and imaginatively arranged by Vaughan himself to bring out the best in his instruments and this is especially evident in his wonderful recent album We’re on a holiday.

Tickets are £15 and available at
