  • Show Description
  • Artist Bios
  • Following their hugely successful, sold out performance in August, Chris & Shimi return with a brand new show.

    Their passion for music sweeps the audience away on a magical journey every time they perform together. Highly successful artists in their own right, something special occurs when they grace the stage as Tiano.

    Shimi’s soaring tenor voice is equally at home singing musical theatre classics as well as songs made famous by Andrea Bocelli. They inject new life into familiar songs, perform songs written by award-winning composer Chris, and songs they’ve written together which were featured on TV earlier this year.

    They impress the audience with their clever and interesting medleys of songs performed in perfect harmony and stunningly arranged by Chris on piano, gliding seamlessly between different styles and take the audience on a unique trip to the Oscars in a segment which never fails to amaze the audience.

    This dreamy duo promises a highly entertaining evening.

  • Chris Hamilton

    Chris started playing the piano at the age of four. He has performed in cabaret internationally from the House of Commons to Bangkok. He has been described by New York critics as “the real deal” and “a total showman”. In the UK, The Daily Telegraph hailed him as “an ace pianist”. New York cabaret legend Steve Ross called him “a wizard on the keys” and Twiggy commented after one of his shows: “I haven’t heard the piano played like that in years”. In 2017 he appeared in A Spoonful of Sherman at Crazy Coqs where he was regularly singled out by critics: “Star of the show is Chris Hamilton with his sparkling, pitch perfect accompaniment and occasional show stealers”. The British Theatre Guide stated that “Hamilton is clearly a very gifted composer”. In 2017 he won the prestigious Silversea Guest Entertainer of the Year Award.
