And your Eastern Courier has

for the

ticket dou­ble pass to win

show.

Kiwi mu­sic le­gend Suzanne Lynch leads the per­for­mance

a

troupe and band in the roll back of the cal­en­dar, when she sings tunes made fa­mous by Doris Day and Con­nie Fran­cis.

Former Pek­ing Man front­man Pat Ur­lich will be singing pop­u­lar Elvis num­bers, com­plete with the un­for­get­table gy­rat­ing hips and moves, while Karl Perigo will croon melodies from the likes of the Everly Broth­ers, hop­ing to make the au­di­ence swoon.

Oper­atu­nity’s Claire Mitchell says view­ers can ‘‘re­live the ro­mance and the fun of when vo­cals met har­monies’’.

‘‘The band will rock and roll the au­di­ence and the singing trio will join to­gether with songs of tight har­monies and toe-tap­ping rhythms.

‘‘Bring your danc­ing shoes,’’ she ad­vises.

Tick­ets are $34 and in­clude a light lunch with the artists after the show. To book, free call 0508 266 237 or visit www.oper­atu­nity.co.nz.
