Praise for What’s A Brayne And Wenda?…

  • “One might well be stumped by the question What’s A Brayne & Wenda? (Ducy Lee Recordings) but those who have seen Wayne and Brenda Moore’s Los Angeles cabaret act will know the answer. This release, recorded in the ’80s at The Rose Tattoo, celebrates the talented duo’s 20 years in clubs. Even then they had a casual, bantering style, lobbing affectionate gibes at each other. Their act is an effective balance of standards (“I’d Rather Leave While I’m In Love”, “It’s A Good Day”), showtunes (“Razzle Dazzle”, “All That Jazz”, Working’s “If I Could’ve Been”) and humorous numbers by Wayne, who also sings and plays piano (and wrote the musical Freeway Dreams). A big-voiced belter, Brenda is equally at home with “Hard-Hearted Hanna” or “Over The Rainbow”. Their fans will be happy to have this recording (previously available on cassette) on CD with a couple of bonus tracks. It doesn’t have state-of-the-art sound, but it puts Wayne and Brenda’s entertaining act right in your living room.”

  • “With the Moores, called by critics ‘that large and hysterical duo’ and ‘a miniature Broadway show,’ you are always guaranteed a first-class evening of cabaret entertainment with plenty of nutty sponaneity. L.A. mainstays, they have the distinction of being the first act to open The Gardenia [as well as The Rose Tattoo] nearly 20 years ago. Their Annual Halloween Costume Show is a Hollywood tradition. A multi-talented songwriter, actor, producer, director, conductor and enthusiastic supporter of new writers for theater and cabaret, Wayne has his own recording company named after his grandfather’s sailboat.Visit his website at www.ducylee.com where, among other things, you’ll definitely want to check out this CD.”
