Over the last twelve years Sharon Rowntree has been entertaining all over the eastern seaboard presenting her main show with website; Dustyandthedivas.com.au, For variety, she also performs with Glenn Sheilds with website; ourduetsshow.com.au featuring the greatest duets of all time
Sharon has been performing since the late 1980s when she joined the ensemble at the Manly Music Loft under the late Peter Flannagan. Sharon was introduced to the vaudeville humour of Peter which gave her a baseline in musical comedy. This combined with her musical training overseas under Seth Riggs and Brett Manning gave her the tools to be perform a song, sell it, and be entertaining and down to earth. Her love of singing has led her to develop numerous shows over the last 20 years, but her love of Dusty Springfield’s music has kept her paying tribute to the white lady of soul. With shows that scale from a one-woman, to mini-shows with tracks and drummer, to full showroom performances, Sharon has shows to suit most venues and most budgets. Sharon is a full time performer, delivering a family run show. We are keen to provide professional and quality entertainment and leave the venue wanting to re-book.
