Duncan Allen & Nick James’ inspiration for their joint passion for music originates from their respective homegrown musical backgrounds. Duncan’s grandfather, a professional musician, played trombone in the band that toured with Frank Sinatra in the 1950’s, here in the UK. Duncan’s early career took him from being a choirboy at Lancing College, to playing a stripper in a production of “The Full Monty” at the Theatre Royal in Brighton. His passion for swing and musical theatre focused his mind on the music that influenced him over many years. Performing as a guest vocalist with “T
... he Syd Lawrence Orchestra”, Duncan was honoured to be cast in a nation-wide theatre touring show of ‘The Rat Pack’ opening at the prestigious Blackpool Opera House.
Likewise, Nick started his career at the tender age of 11, joining his parents’ musical act on the northern club circuit, where he learned his early years’ stage craft. Venturing overseas, he then showcased his talent as a lead vocalist in various production shows. His popularity, eventually leading him to headline in “Raffles”, a theatre supper show based in the Canary Islands. More recently his production of The Doris Day Story – “It’s Magic” took him on a short tour as co-star and narrator. Latterly, Nick has had the pleasure of delighting and performing onboard both Royal Caribbean International and Fred Olsen cruises to a wide demographic of audiences to critical acclaim.
Both Duncan and Nick are passionate entertainers, each with over 20 years’ experience, delivering outstanding performances with flawless vocals, sophistication and style. Swing, musical theatre, and big band classics have taken them to theatres, festivals, cruise ships, and hotels both in the UK and internationally.
Duncan is also the co-founder of the musical trio, “The Flat Pack”, a Rat Pack themed show who were thrilled to reach the later stages of “The Voice UK” 2019 TV series and were mentored and coached by Olly Murs. He was due to make his West End debut in May 2020 in “Good Jazzy Noon”, a show bringing together the idols of jazz and swing, including Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra.
In addition to their singing careers, both have become a notable presence as MC in official circles, hosting in London and nationwide. In April of 2019, it was a delight to co-present a business awards evening with Jenny Bond, BBC journalist and royal correspondent. TV credits include pilot shows for Celador Productions and two series of an LWT production of Drummonds.
Having both worked on various solo projects, long standing friends Duncan and Nick have successfully brought to the stage, their flair and sophisticated style. With passion and unwavering energy, 3 fantastic shows have been purposely created specifically for the international cruise and leisure market.
