Fall in love again with the golden age of dance
Sharing its name with the 1975 vinyl album by Fred Astaire and Bing Cosby, Just a Couple of Song and Dance Men brings together the exciting dance routines and fabulous songs of legendary performers in one glorious stage production. Following the famous and immortalised male dancers of the Hollywood movie musicals, the show will captivate you with their lives, their songs and their dancing … particularly their dancing.
The show is a narrative concert with two male performers, accompanied by a talented pianist on a grand piano. Joe Meldrum and Shay Debney will be singing and dancing the songs of the great bygone era in a performance that channels Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope and many more…
Joe Meldrum returns to the stage after starring in the sell-out Fred Astaire: A Fine Romance at RPAC last year. A talented dancer, actor and singer, Joe has also starred as Big Deal in West Side Story. Joining Joe on stage for this singing and dancing extravaganza is Shay Debney, fresh from his current tour with The Wizard of Oz. Shay has played many prominent roles including Eric in the dance production of Lord of The Flies with Sir Matthew Bourne’s Company.
