Tanya Carrum

(If you are not familiar with The Brenster & Carrum Show (Brent McAthey and Tanya Carrum) then be prepared to have your socks knocked off. This duo is electric with excitement. Excitement to perform just for you, excitement to give you your money’s worth, they are alive with the sound of music. Their hour and half is filled with duos and solos. Together they perform classics such as “I won’t dance, don’t ask me”, “The lady is a tramp”, “He drinks tequila and she talks dirty in Spanish”, and they close the show with their signature song, “I like you so much.”

As for the solos, wow! Brent has eight costume changes and performs everything from Tom Jones’s “She’s a lady”, to Leonard Cohen’s “I’m your man” to “Tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree”. Brent’s colourful shirts  just can’t compete with Tanya’s sexy corsets, tight jeans or velvet skirts. She’s all woman, singing in English, Spanish and Italian. She easily belts out “Don’t cry for me Argentina” in Spanish, of course, and switches to Italian and sings Caruso’s “Lucio Dalla.” She’s so passionate about her singing, it will bring tears to your eyes. Then she’ll vamp it up in a mariachi outfit (talk about an eye-popper) and a glam sombrero that only Tanya could wear. It’s a glorious show, it’s genuine and generous. They give the gift of an electric energy. And this gift keeps on giving.)
