Chris Tummings

Chris Tummings in the movie Water with Michael Caine and Billy ConnollyActor and musician Chris debuted on stage in 1979 and has since appeared in various theatrical and musical theatre productions including "Buddy" and most recently "The Harder They Come".

His on screen work is just as varied with film credits including Runners (with Edward Fox) and Water (with Michael Caine and Billy Connolly).

Comedian Chris Tummings in character on a TV sketch showChris is probably best known however for his work in the hit comedy sketch show No Problem. He continued this love of comedy writing and starring in the Channel 4 comedy series Get Up, Stand Up which ran for four years.

One common thread through Chris’ career has been his love of music, whether through the early part of his career singing with “Broken Sound” or developing himself as a multi-instrumentalist (Chris plays saxophone, guitar and percussion) - tonight these two paths combine in a show packed with great tunes and big laughs.

Like Chris, Victor is both an actor and musician. A founder member of the Black Theatre Co-operative, Victor toured many of the company’s key productions through the 1980s, including "Welcome Home Jacko", "Mama Dragon", "One Rule", "Redemption Song" and "Trinity".  Most recently Victor has appeared on stage in the first British Black Musical to hit the West End, London, "The Big Life" at the Apollo Theatre and the stage musical "The Harder They Come" at the Playhouse Theatre, London.

Victor Romero Evans on Channel 4's Black on BlackStarring alongside Chris in the popular No Problem, he also found TV fame on the weekly Channel 4 magazine show Black on Black. On film, Victor has starred in cult British classics Babylon and Burning an Illusion amongst others, including The Class of Miss McMichael (with Glenda Jackson).

Victor has recorded a string of reggae hits, most notably the smash hit "At the Club", which brought great success to him and producer John Collins, catching the eyes of The Specials (more work with 2 Tone followed including producer credits on the iconic "Ghost Town".)Victor Romero Evans with fellow vocalist Janet Kay

Always enigmatic on stage, Victor gigs as often as his acting duties allow, often appearing with his long time friend and collaborator, vocal star Janet Kay.

The Club Skaaville All Stars

Sax star Ray Carless taking a break during recordingBand leader Ray Carless is quite possibly one of the most in demand musicians in the country today.  Never has the tag "he’s played with everyone" been so appropriate.  From his early days with Incognito, and as a founder member of the Jazz Warriors, through to playing with Adele and Tippa Irie, Ray’s list of projects and collaborations is unequalled.  Add to that an appearance at Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday celebrations and you start to get the picture.

Ray sets the bar high in terms of music – needless to say his band follow!
