About this Act

Little Black Dress Duo is a classy two-woman cabaret act serving up a delicious banquet of vocal and instrumental delights; a squeeze of Eartha Kitt, a spoonful of Kirsty McCall, a saucy dollop of Tom Lehrer and a sprinkling of Caro Emerald with lashings of continental melodies and rhythms … and that’s just for starters!

A captivating vision in black, oozing glamour and dripping with diamonds, Amanda and Dawn delight their audiences with an eclectic musical mix of passion and wicked humour.

Amanda releases her inner diva with rich, theatrical vocals expertly enhanced on occasions by her thumping rhythmic guitar. Meanwhile Dawn, poised on adjacent styling stool, remains quietly but magnificently in control on exquisite piano accordion. Expect the unexpected!
