Round up your T-birds and Pink Ladies to head to the Cook Road venue on Saturday next week for the ultimate celebration of Dirty Dancing and Grease.

A tribute group will be performing all the greatest hits from the iconic films from Hungry Eyes to She’s Like The Wind, Grease Lightning, You’re The One That I Want and Summer Loving.

Vocalist Danielle Sharp said: “James’s and mine natural onstage chemistry brings both these shows to life in a fantastic tribute to Grease and Dirty Dancing.

“You can expect a fantastic vocal adaption of all of the popular and best loved songs from both shows.”

The professional singer has been performing for more than 12 years with some top talents.

She has sung alongside this year’s The Voice winner and former Liberty X star Kevin Simm and has really enjoyed taking the show on tour to places like Ireland.

Danielle says it’s great to be working alongside experienced Grease showman James Evans who played Danny Zuko in the show’s European Arena tour. “I actually got into the tribute act through a performer friend of mine,” she recalled. “I got asked to cover a gig with him up in Scotland and absolutely loved it.

“I’ve been doing the tribute for nearly three years now – it’s such a fun show to do, the songs are great and audience love it.

“James definitely has the Swayzee moves and charm.”

The group will also be showcasing all the moves, lifts, dances and spins associated with your favourite tracks, making it the perfect excuse for a night out.

“My favourite songs to sing from Dirty Dancing are Be My Baby by the Ronettes and Time Of My Life as it’s such an iconic song,” Danielle added.

The Grease and Dirty Dancing tribute act will start at 9.30pm on Saturday, August 13.

Tickets cost £5, or you can upgrade to VIP tickets for £10, which include front section seating, a meal and a drink.
