Divas Las Vegas is an uproariously rollicking ride through musical history that pays homage to the world’s great Divas of Song & Stage.
Experience: Divas Las Vegas found roots in the early childhood of siblings Barbara and Gordon Oliver, when they began their journey as musical comrades. While growing up, Barb studied voice, dance and theatre, and Gord honed his skills as a young guitarist in local rock bands. They eventually joined forces in early adulthood to form the club act ALTER EGO. While playing with the finest local musicians from their hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia, they branched out with original music and enjoyed great success on college radio.
It was during these club years that Barb mastered the talent of vocal impersonation and launched her one-woman smash hit of the Fringe festival, DIARY OF A MAD DIVA. She was then chosen by jury as one of ten finalists to recreate the show for the prestigious WOMEN 2000 theatre event. In the flush of that success, Barb and Gord busily set about creating the show now known as DIVAS LAS VEGAS. By combining theatre, comedy, costume and musical impersonation, this brother/sister collaboration has taken the show to a whole new level. To date they have performed for events of every variety, including casinos, soft seat dinner theatre and corporate events. With every show, the story continues…

Kenny and Dolly, to Jerry and Elaine.Divas Las Vegas has it all! The show involves live performances and singing (no lip-syncing).

“Just a short note to say Thanks for the memories. Divas Las Vegas kept our members in their seats, enjoying every minute of their act. Afterward, they kept our members on the dance floor until closing time. Thanks for another great effort and I”m sure I will be working with you again.”

“We want to thank you for providing the entertainment for our 2004 Christmas party. Divas Las Vegas was a riot from start to finish and from the feedback, enjoyed by all in attendance! Barb and Gord did an excellent job as the various stars they were impersonating and if you closed your eyes you’d swear you were listening to the actual star. They even did a skit centered on the staff of Container World which was a big hit. After the show, they played a good variety of dance music which kept all who wanted to, on the dance floor for the rest of the evening. We definitely enjoyed the show and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.”

“We recently employed the services of Divas Las Vegas for our annual Christmas party. We thoroughly enjoyed the show they presented. The comedy was perfect for the mixed age group in attendance and we were impressed with the up to date material they performed. Barb and Gord have an amazing ability to accurately mimic both the voices and personal traits of popular celebrities. We would highly recommend the talents of Divas Las Vegas to anyone seeking a high quality, fun and laughter filled event.”
Barb and Gord, Divas Las Vegas…such a spectacular show! We were especially impressed when you knit the names of our member businesses with Mr.Bobbit, in your Ernestine bit. Customized entertainment for our Abbotsford Executives Association, Olympic Launch Party. Authentic and funny depictions of the stars, Bette and Dolly working the room and interacting with the crowd…. Many of our members unexpectedly found themselves part of the entertainment… very engaging, fast paced and loads of variety. My in-box was flooded with notes of praise and thanks for a most enjoyable evening. (Bonus…because of DLV, the Event Planner also becomes a star!) The best of both worlds, a superb floor- show and dancing in the same night. Thank you, can’t wait to see you again. We’ll recommend you frequently and enthusiasticly as excellent quality, great value entertainment.
