Mandurah's seniors recently enjoyed a stunning concert featuring the voices of Kelly Green and Eddie Storm.

Held at the Mandurah Seniors and Community Centre, the Boom Bang a Bang performance enthralled audiences exactly as promised with the biggest numbers from the 60s and 70s.

The talent of the pair was on full display with Green and Storm each singing the hits of yesteryear in classy solo acts.

Renowned throughout Australia for her performances on 'Bandstand' and 'The Johnny O'Keefe Show', Green also currently plays music from her 'Bandstand' days on local radio stations once a week.

Belting out fan favourites like Boom Bang A Bang, It Had To Be You, Crazy, My Guy and You're My World, she delivered a thrilling first half of the concert.

Now residing in north Perth and performing all over Western Australia, Green also told some of her own personal stories during her set including growing up in a musical family, arriving in Australia at just 15 years old and landing a spot on 'Bandstand'.

The second half of the show, featured thrilling hits like Granada by Storm.

Storm has been performing across the country for years and was awarded an Order of Australia for a lifetime achievement in performing arts in 2016.

Performing the Luciano Pavarotti version of the 1932 classic, Storm pulled it off without a hitch and it was met with great applause from the audience.

Storm's rendition of Music of the Night from Phantom of the Opera, complete with a full dress, hat and mask, was also enjoyed by everyone in attendance including a very special guest, Jean James.

Soon to be 104 years old, Jean currently resides at Coolibah Care and loves to get out to enjoy some music.

Organisers would like to thank the general public, who came from as far as Armadale to attend, as well as caring staff and attentive volunteers, who worked tirelessly behind the scenes.

The next concert at the Mandurah Seniors and Community Centre will be held on October 2. All are welcome.

There is also expected to be a special Seniors Week concert, as well as other activities, on November 15. For more information, call 9550 3799.
