In 1991, Strong was introduced to the world through his portrayal of Declan “Deco” Cuffe, lead vocalist of fictional Irish soul band THE COMMITMENTS from the film of the same name. Now, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the award-winning film, Strong will tour NZfor the first time ever this March!

After the film, Strong would go on to pursue his career as a singer songwriter, eventually
returning to where it all began years later, performing the film’s hits “Mustang Sally”, “Try A
Little Tenderness”, “Chain of Fools”, “Take Me To The River”, “In the Midnight Hour
” plus
More.

Following the trials and tribulations of vocalist Deco, his band and their starry-eyed managerJimmy Rabbitte. THE COMMITMENTS was released to critical acclaim (Collecting 4 BAFTA’s) with the sound track selling over 12 million copies.
