The jukebox musical is more of a tribute concert, with a live band performing the duo’s greatest hits. Projected photos of Simon and Garfunkel and evocative images from the 1960's help set the scene, and the performers narrate key moments from the musicians’ career.

Since finishing drama school in 2014, O’Hanlon has appeared in the UK tour of Jackie the Musical and several smaller productions. Blyth’s credits include a diverse range of shows, including Teechers, HMS Pinafore and Romeo & Juliet.
The show was originally directed by David Beck, with the current tour directed by Dean Elliott. Band members include Leon Camfield, Will Tuckwell, Mat Swales, Kyla Brown and Tim Bloomer.
