Deborah Johnson and Wayland Pickard are Double Grandé and the new FERRANTE and TEICHER. They met because they both write musical theatre. Wayland and Deborah have both written three musicals each. They got together for lunch to compare notes and discovered they both were top-gun pianists…and vocalists…and composers. So what if they combined efforts? They were both already touring their one-person shows across the country so they decided to join together for DOUBLE GRANDÉ: Two GRAND Voices, Two GRAND pianos.
The result was magic!
With the ability to go from jazz to pop to classics, they discovered their arranging styles were an easy match. Add in Deborah’s beautiful vocals, compared with BRIGHTMAN and STREISAND and Wayland’s music and comedy in the tradition of VICTOR BORGE and you have a combination that audiences love! When you experience their shows, you won’t deny the fact that both Deborah and Wayland were born to entertain. If you believe in destiny, you will agree this is a rare moment in history with a combination such as theirs. With both Deborah’s and Wayland’s musical heritages tracing back to grandmothers who came overseas to play violin in Carnegie Hall, you will be astounded at the fact that two stars in their own galaxies came together to collide and explode as the new DOUBLE GRANDÉ EXPERIENCE.
