“Fashions may change but quality is timeless, which explains how the stylish Elaine Delmar has survived the passage of so many vocal trends over the years. A favourite with both jazz and cabaret audiences, she continues to set the standard for sophisticated, rich-toned interpretations of the Great American Songbook” London Evening Standard
"If somewhere in paradise a cloud is reserved for Kiri Te Kanawa to sing Mozart arias throughout eternity, not too far away another one must be set aside for Elaine Delmar to sing Gershwin." NZ Herald
Elaine Delmar is one of the most popular jazz and cabaret performers this country has ever produced, equally at home in intimate cabaret rooms and in concert and arena settings. She makes her Crazy Coqs debut with GERSHWIN AND MORE.
Whether in hushed ballads, dynamic standards or the blues, Elaine’s unique way with a lyric and a melody underscores her unassailable position as a ‘singer’s singer’ who is loved by audiences throughout the world.
Elaine's experience is wide and diverse. On stage, she appeared in Cowardy Custard at London's Mermaid Theatre and No Strings at Her Majesty's Theatre in the West End. Although best known for her starring role in the musical Bubbling Brown Sugar at The Royalty Theatre, London, she also had notable success with Kern Goes To Hollywood, appearing in both the London and Broadway productions. Elaine also received critical acclaim as a straight actress for her role in A Map Of The World at the National Theatre. She has made many appearances on TV and radio and featured in Ken Russell's film Mahler as the Bohemian Princess.
