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).
