Well-known cruise ship entertainers Amy & Freddy will make their Miami debut Thursday and Friday night at Cabaret South Beach.
Known as Chicago’s Dynamic Duo, Amy Armstrong and Freddy Allen have been entertaining audiences for 20 years, including their most recent stint as the “Entertainment Ambassadors” of RSVP Cruise Lines, where they’ve entertained around the world, in places like Greece, Tahiti and Puerto Vallarta, to name just a few.
They’ve also performed in cities coast to coast, including Los Angeles, New York City, Portland, Ore., St. Louis, Key West, Fla., San Francisco, St. Paul, Minn.; Seattle, Detroit, Provincetown, R.I., Fort Lauderdale, Chicago (of course!), and many, many more.
They have been the opening act for several familiar names including Mary Wilson and the Supremes, Phyllis Diller, Bea Arthur, Jennifer Holiday, Judy Tenuta, Lois Bromfeld, and Judy Gold.
They’ve also performed at Copenhagen’s New Year’s Concert, served as grand marshals at Washington, D.C.’s Gay Pride parade and headlined the main stage at the U.S. Capitol.
Originally from Detroit, Armstrong has been entertaining professionally since she was a child. As an adult, she is known for her powerful and soulful voice, which mesmerizes listeners while her hilarious and risqué humor keeps them doubled over in laughter. She moved to Chicago in 1995 and quickly became one of the Windy City’s hottest talents.
Freddy, Amy’s pianist and music director, has been a professional musician for over twenty-five years. After moving from St. Louis in 1995, Freddy successfully made his name as one of Chicago’s most well known pianists. When he’s not performing with Amy, Freddy works as a freelance musician.
The pair met 20 years ago at an Open Mic night at Chicago’s Gentry, formed an act, and have been entertaining together ever since. They have produced four very successful albums; Amy and Freddy – the Debut, Life is a Cabaret, Naturally Flawless and Feeling Good. All of the recordings have been recognized nationally, and have received rave reviews.
General admission is $20 and there is a two-drink minimum. Tickets can be ordered here.
