EXPECT your favourite Christmas song and a whole lot more festive cheer when TwoTone Music’s popular Tuxedo Club steps on stage in Port Elizabeth this month.
After a busy year performing at various high-profile events and weddings, the suave pack of tuxedo-clad entertainers return with a new show in aid of Thamsanqa Family Restoration Services.
Director Ulagh Williams (piano and vocals) is back in the proverbial saddle after a year-long break from stage shows after giving birth to a baby girl in March.
“The Tuxedo Club have been very busy this year but we’ve only done private performances,” Williams said.
“Our followers have been waiting patiently for a new show and we’re excited to bring our music back to the stage just in time for Christmas.
“We will also be giving to charity so we are inviting the public to open their hearts and pockets and support this show,” Williams said.
Scat-man Brinley Yon returns with his zany stage antics and will be joined by crooner Francis Pratt and newcomer Aston Wylie.
Adding some spice on brass will be nationally renowned trombonist Kyle du Preez.
Evergreen Christmas music from Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Dean Martin and Louis Armstrong will be performed alongside more modern renditions from artists like Michael Buble, Mariah Carey, The Eagles and even Bruno Mars.
“We guarantee that everyone’s favourite Christmas song will make an appearance,” Williams says.”There will be plenty of audience participation and singalong opportunities, blended with the guys’ quirky and humorous on-stage banter.”
The show is for all ages and is the perfect mix of sophisticated entertainment and festive cheer.
The show will be staged on December 20 at 8pm in the picturesque Christmas Shop at the Moffett-on-Main Lifestyle Centre.
Pre-booked tickets cost R120 (R95 for pensioners and students). Tickets bought at the door will cost R140.
