very funny musical act DELEA SHAND, Hailed by the Albany Times Union as, “Especially impressive.... even while delivering some swooping and percussive vocal affects,” soprano Delea Shand sings everything from opera, new music, musical theatre and comedy.

charismatic /funny musical act CELIA DELANEY Celia Delaney is a comedian who writes and performs stand-up and songs, both at conferences and in her own solo shows. Not one of your ‘run-of-the-mill’ after dinner speakers, Celia is a breath of fresh air if you are looking for something different for your event. She writes about middle age, marriage and monotony in her own inimitable style, combining intelligence and wit with a healthy dose of audience interaction. Having trained at Mountview Academy for Theatre Arts – the leading drama school for Musical Theatre in the UK – and after spending years treading the boards, Celia is now enjoying being one of the London comedians who have brought other disciplines into their comedy. She has been a jazz singer, an actress, a speaker, a coach and then trained in cabaret and comedy, and brings all that experience together to make it a day…or night… to remember.
