Oh, What a Night! will both charm and entertain you. Audiences will be taken on a captivating musical journey of pure nostalgia as they enjoy those instantly recognisable songs from the playlist of the nights we’ll never forget.

Music has long been associated with pivotal moments in our lives, sparking unforgettable memories we all treasure. We hear a song and we immediately reflect back to that moment we first experienced it and the associated memories.


Oh, What a Night! will highlight those experiences in a 70-minute show of non-stop fun, jam-packed with hit after hit for audiences to delight in, clap along to, tape their toes to or get up and dance to.

Bongi has proven time and again his versatility and popularity with audiences brought about by his vibrant and charming stage presence second to none. Those watching Oh, What a Night! will now have the added experience of seeing his skill on the piano too, not just his smooth-as-silk vocals.


Says Bongi Archi; 

“This show is super exciting for me because I not only get to stage a new solo show, with my first female feature, but to showcase myself on piano which many people have yet seen or experienced. This is the beginning of a new journey for me as a showman, artist as well as a performer and I’m excited for audiences to experience this new journey.”

Audiences will delight in hit songs like Ed Sheeran’s Perfect, Bruno Mars Just the Way You Are, to Down Let the Sun Go Down on Me, Simply the Best and more.

Oh, What a Night! is an ideal show for audiences old and young, leaving everyone wanting more.


Oh, What a Night! is conceived by Bongi Archi and Collett Dawson, produced by The CoLab Network, with music arrangements by Bongi Archi.
