Let the Music Play – a Celebration of Barry White
Barry White, a two-time Grammy winner, is renowned for his unique, smooth bass voice. The distinct singer often toured with Love Unlimited, the female group for who he composed, conducted, produced, and arranged timeless hits, including “Ecstasy”, “Cant’ Get Enough of Your Love Babe”, “Never Never Gonna Give You Up”, and many more.
Barry White has earned gold and platinum discs with total sales exceeding 100 million. His live shows were always sold out at every phase of his career, and his unique voice remains nearly impossible to replicate. Touring with his own female group (The Supreme Dreamgirls) and orchestra, William Hicks has portrayed Barry White for quite some time.
William Hicks pays meticulous attention to detail, making this show simply unmissable!

Walk Like A Man – The Sounds of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons
The Four Seasons gained their fame in the 60s, releasing some of the best rock ‘n roll hits of the era, producing timeless classics like Big Girls Don’t Cry, Sherry, Beggin’, and Walk Like a Man.
These classics boasted the distinct voice of Frankie Valli, the famous falsetto, which is just as magnificent today as it was back then. The band consisted of fantastic male musicians and was undoubtedly one of the best acts of the time. The group sold more than 100 million records across the world, earning its spot in the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame. Mark Halliday, also known as “Jersey Boy”, produced the perfect recreation of Walk Like a Man, the ideal tribute to one of the best rock bands the world has ever seen.

Ring of Fire – The Johnny Cash Birthday Bash!
It’s the Man in Black’s birthday, and Rick McKay is honouring him with a totally authentic Johnny Cash show at The Spa…
This performance is more than a simple tribute to this massive name in music. It gives the audience a clear view of the music and the life of the Man in Black. The band performs all its greatest hits in a fitting style and atmosphere. Jodie Mckay portrays the role of June Carter Cash wonderfully. Keen attention to every detail has gone into the show, and this led to the drummer of Johnny’s Tennessee Three, WS ‘Fluke’ Holland, thanking Rick McKay and Starkville for bringing life to Johnny’s music. Similarly, the bassist of the Tennessee Three, Dave Roe, openly endorses this show for anyone who loves Johnny Cash or just wants to hear the real thing for the first time.
This show simply cannot be missed when the original band members praise it so highly.

Roy ‘Chubby’ Brown – The Bad Boy of Comedy
We’re delighted to welcome one of the icons of comedy with his often blue and irreverent brand of humour. Not for the easily offended, Roy has entertained all over the world and, according to Les Dawson, would have been a TV star had he picked a different colour. To blue, that is. One of the funniest men performing today, the man who came up the hard way, always goes down well with his faithful audience and new fans alike. Prepare to laugh until something hurts, and expect no mercy! Expect outrageously near and over-the-mark humour, and please don’t buy a ticket unless you’re happy to be shocked.
