Some of the best showstoppers from the musical stage performed by singer Mark Rattray and a team of six superb dancers made this entertainment a treat and a half.

It's a long time since Opportunity Knocked for Mark Rattray - but success in that early talent-spotting TV show opened the door to a flourishing career.

He wows audiences with top quality performances and his journey through the history of jazz made for a splendid evening.

No matter that some of the numbers were distant relations of true jazz because the delivery was faultless and the choreography was straight from the best of the West End.

With a talented and syncopated four-piece band on stage, Rattray belted out a succession of favourite numbers beginning his journey in the Deep South with Summertime and working his way to Broadway. If They Could See Me Now and Chicago were just two of the slick and exciting production numbers which typified the show.

When the action moved to Europe the audience feasted on the best of Cabaret and a tribute to the inspiring and exhilarating work of Bob Fosse with razzle-dazzle performances of Chicago and Steam Heat. That's entertainment!
