In 1991, Andrew 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. The film became a cult classic, with the soundtrack spending 51 weeks in the ARIA Top 40, peaking at #1.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the award-winning film, Andrew Strong will return to Australia to perform the classic soundtrack in full. He speaks to Pip about being only 16 when the film was made, his Dad's involvement with the film, and hilarious encounters he's had with Aussie punters over the years.
