Candy Man is the dynamic all Dancing and all Singing infused celebration of the life and music of Sammy Davis Jr.
The show features a live Band, a cast of Musical Theatre Performers and a Youth Choir - set amongst Las Vegas nightclubs, concert halls, musicals, and films and with a twist of Vaudeville, all of which characterised Sammy Davis Jr’s career.
Kermond was inspired at a young age when performing in Guys and Dolls.
Sammy Davis Jr had attended the show as an audience member and approached
him in the Green Room afterwards saying to him...
“Man, you are one cool dancer. Keep it up, cos we need young cats like you to take over from old cats like me.”
Candy Man is Exuberant Entertainment, The song-and-dance man, music in motion, heart on sleeve -
audience in the palm of his hand. Kermond’s comic showmanship is first class”

A brilliant evening of Capital E entertainment. An outstanding hand-picked dance troupe, a fabulous orchestra that keeps the joint jumping and Kermond, that rare endangered species - a song and dance man, a guy who can keep you entertained all night. The Sunday Mail, Adelaide
