Frankie Asks…’Streisand & Me’

In the debut episode, Frankie from Viva Blackpool’s Jersey Beats, sits down to talk with the sensational Tracey Jordan from ‘Streisand & Me!’ coming to Viva on Monday 6th August 2018!

Frankie couldn’t resist asking Tracey about her experiences accompanying the legendary Joe Longthorne and how ‘Streisand and Me’ came to life.

 

Tracey revealed that from performing the Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand classic, ‘You Don’t Bring Me Flowers’ with the the legendary Joe Longthorne that it was his words of encouragement that really gave Tracey the confidence to step into the spotlight – and we’re so glad she did!

“…even Joe said to me – “You need to sing more of (Streisand’s) stuff! You need to put your own show together!”” – Tracey on her conversations with Joe Longthorne about her singing career.

The band accompanying Tracey during her performance of Streisand & Me will be a five piece band, all of whom she’s very familiar with as they also perform on stage with Joe Longthorne!

Tracey has always been emphatic about how the show is not an impersonation or a tribute act, but rather a performance of Streisand’s songs in her own style. Tracey pays tribute to the music rather than the icon – and we wouldn’t want it any other way!
