Certificate of Excellence
BRICK LANE MUSIC HALL
The soundtrack to our Sixties Show was put together by Paul James. Paul was not only part of the Sixties music explosion with his young band, The Soundcasters, he also worked in the music industry with the iconic stars of the decade – from Cilla Black and Billy J Kramer, to Gerry and The Pacemakers and The Beatles.
We asked Paul how he chose the music for the show.
“I have been writing shows for over forty years and, for me, choosing the music is the fun bit. Choosing songs for the 60’s show was easy with so many great classics to choose from. I always like to choose songs that the audience know and love, the ones that they say “I haven’t heard that for years, but it used to be my favourite”.
With wonderful songs – and a few laughs along the way….. The Sixties Show opens May 30th 2014 – be there or be square!

It’s official! Brick Lane Music Hall is the smiling heart of the East End.
On the day that a Right Move survey was published claiming that the people of the East End are the unhappiest people in England, an ITV News report showcased Brick Lane Music Hall as proof that the East End is still a great place to live. Any East Ender feeling unhappy, they said, just needs to drop in to Brick Lane Music Hall, guaranteed to get them smiling!
The report was presented by ITV’s Glen Goodman, who chatted to customers enjoying lunch before the Divas show. It also featured Vincent Hayes leading the audience in a cheery rendition of Brick Lane Music Hall’s “National Anthem”, Daisy Daisy!

Divas brings to the Brick Lane Music Hall stage some of the great legends of rock, pop, stage and screen, male and female, past and present, from both sides of the Atlantic. The show celebrates some of the stars who have carved out their own place in history, becoming legends in their own lifetime.
If the USA has Barbra and Elvis, we have Shirley and Elton! If you can answer four devilishly diverish questions, you could qualify for a very special offer during our forthcoming show!
1. Barbra Streisand is one of the few entertainers to have won an Oscar, an Emmy, a Grammy and a Tony. Her Tony was for which role? (her only West End appearance, in 1966)
2. Elvis Presley is sometimes referred to by what two-word accolade?
3. Shirley Bassey recorded the only Beatles song to have sold more copies than the original version. What was the song?
4. Which Elton John hit is the biggest selling single of all time?
Simply write the four answers on a postcard with your name (and group name if you booked with a group) and hand to the Box Office on arrival. We will hold a special prize draw EVERY DAY and the winner will receive a bottle of Champagne!
So if you haven’t yet booked, please hurry! Divas is at Brick Lane Music Hall from May 16th – 23rd 2014. Phone Box Office or see website listings for details.
