A POPULAR singing duo who started off busking in Romford have split after 17 years of writing and performing music together.

The Dualers- brothers Tyber and Si Cranstoun are parting so that Si can concentrate on his solo work and his family.

Tyber said: “It is an end of an era but it is not like a Noel and Liam Gallagher departure.

“It is something that we both knew was coming so we knew should just let go but the door is always open so that he can always come back.”

But fans of the reggae, soul and ska singers can see the boys perform live together for one last time when they head into the Brentwood Leisure Centre in Doddinghurst Drive, Brentwood on December 16.

Tyber said: “It is very emotional because we are expecting our fan base to come out in their droves because it is where a lot of people saw us from the beginning.”

Starting at 8pm, the show will see the boys performing some of their best loved tracks from over the years.

Audiences can also expect to hear songs like Truly Madly Deeply which featured in the soundtrack to the film Fool’s Gold, the brothers chart topping hit Kiss On The Lips, plus Uno, Deuxs Trois.

Tyber said: “It is going to be an emotional one and we will be performing some of our own songs that we were doing on the streets when we first started out so it is going to be a nostalgic trip down memory lane.”

The brothers first started busking in Romford and South London about 17 years ago performing reggae and ska songs that they grew up listening to.

They first found fame in 2004, when their debut Kiss On The Lips, stormed into the charts in number 21, before releasing Truly Madly Deeply the year after which gave them their second UK hit.

They have also clocked up performances at festivals, gigs and venues including London’s Indigo O2.

It might be the end of the Dualers, as we know it but Tyber has vowed to keep the name going.

He said: “The dynamics will change because we will only have one front man but nothing is going to change in terms of the music and especially because the guys in the band are real pros in their own rights and some of them have worked with people like Bob Marley.”

Tickets for the show at the Brentwood Centre are £15 from Tyber on 07905497271 and you can also catch them busking together for the last time in Romford on Saturday December 11.
