Nigel had the pleasure of The Tina Turner Experience in on his new Stepping Out Show on Sunday.
A brilliant chat with Julie about her long career starting with ballet and now The Tina Turner Experience, with concerts coming up in Harlow, Felixstowe and Basildon.
Starring Miss Julie Nevada, one of the World’s leading Tina Turner impersonators, Julie has studied Tina’s dance moves, her facial expressions and her voice for many years. Put this together with her fantastic nine piece live band The Vintage Corporation, and her fabulous dance troupe The Ultimate Dance Co., it makes a show well worth booking for a great night’s entertainment.
