Title: Viva Blackpool brings Xmas Joy 2016
Post by: PETER MOWBRAY on December 27, 2016, 03:58:01 PM
Blackpool Viva is something that Live In Blackpool has supported since they rented the upper floor of the Layton Institute 5 years ago.. :thumbup1:

Its  an experience that leaves you wanting more..!

We paid for the dine and cabaret package and arrived a few hours before the show started so that we could enjoy the most amazing food..

Home made soup and prawns to start..

(http://i702.photobucket.com/albums/ww21/PETERMOWBRAY7/Blackpool/Blackpool001/A7110498-D90E-4274-9F7A-3BC0173B3A70_zpstqfdfz30.jpg) (http://s702.photobucket.com/user/PETERMOWBRAY7/media/Blackpool/Blackpool001/A7110498-D90E-4274-9F7A-3BC0173B3A70_zpstqfdfz30.jpg.html)

The mains of roast beef with seasonal vegetables..

And cheesecake for pudding.. :tongue_smilie:

(http://i702.photobucket.com/albums/ww21/PETERMOWBRAY7/Blackpool/Blackpool001/8C734DCC-18BD-40C9-A37C-5D1F33B2B919_zpsjhugoq0z.jpg) (http://s702.photobucket.com/user/PETERMOWBRAY7/media/Blackpool/Blackpool001/8C734DCC-18BD-40C9-A37C-5D1F33B2B919_zpsjhugoq0z.jpg.html)

The food was very nice, it has a varied menu to choose from, but we fancied a non traditional Christmas meal..

All the focus was on the bed on the stage... :thumbup:

And out pops one of the stars of the show, the incredibly funny Leye D Johns.. :w00t:

(http://i702.photobucket.com/albums/ww21/PETERMOWBRAY7/DSC_2812_zpsx0j9lmck.jpg) (http://s702.photobucket.com/user/PETERMOWBRAY7/media/DSC_2812_zpsx0j9lmck.jpg.html)

The Christmas Show 2016 consisted of some superb vocals from Emma Wright and Johnny James Wright ( No relation ) and the uniquely talented Leye D Johns doing what he does best with his comedy mayhem and some very good vocal renditions..
I didn't realise how good Leye is at singing, a real all round entertainer.. :thumbup1:

The show starts with a Vegas type introduction, its very well done and choreographed.. :thumbup1:

The show consists of a series of sketches, amazing vocals and Leye D Johns slapstick humour..its amazing..

Emma Wright one of the best vocalists that I have seen in a while, a complete performer that hits every note.. :thumbup1:

A show is only as good as its dancers, fast moving and free flowing..loved them.. :thumbup1:
