With great songs, explosive dance routines & 70s costumes, Disco Inferno is a floor show tailor made for corporate clients or functions and events with a 70s theme.

Frank-&-Ella

Ella Fitzgerald is known as “the first lady of jazz” who brought the Great American Songbook to life with her wonderful renditions of jazz standards. She had an amazing three octave vocal range and was known for her pure tone and impeccable diction phrasing and intonation. A true legend, Frank Sinatra was arguably the greatest entertainer of the 20th century and very few have ever matched his chart success and record sales. Fitzgerald and Sinatra left an indelible mark on popular music and this homage to these greats is a celebration of the music of two remarkable performers.
