HE'S got the moves and clearly the experience, and Dave (Davey) Hughes is offering a juicy, entertaining night when Sydney Hotshots journeys back to Gladstone.

The company has been in existence for almost 20 years, and adds more routines and excitement to each new show.

This year the guys have been working with one of Australia's leading choreographers, setting up sexy dance routines with spicy costumes.

"I've been with the boys just over a year," Davey (stage show name) said about his personal experience.

"But I used to work in Las Vegas for 10 years in another show."

The performer and group MC has seen many acts but said this was the best show in Australia at the moment.

"And all the guys are down to earth - the new guys are great looking guys, good bodies, great abs; I'm excited to spend another year, maybe more, with them."

New recruit Johno is a former US soldier who recently completed a military tour to Afghanistan, while another new member comes from France, offering a little alluring European culture to the mix.

Touring with the group proves exciting for the guys who constantly maintain their shape with gym, careful diets and rehearsals.

Davey said when it came to relationships it also helped that the current crew members were unattached.

"All the guys now are 100% single and 200% straight," he confirmed.

And this may be one reason the 32-year-old is still thoroughly enjoying the job.

But more realistically, Davey said he loved a good show and good crowd, like the crowd they received last time they visited Gladstone.

"It's a great company to work for and touring around Australia is always fun. We've actually broken into the United States too - got a couple of dates booked."

This especially is an exciting concept to Davey who spent so much time in America previously.

"I used to hang out with friends, hang out with people like Paris Hilton," he said about some of his experiences.

"It was that sort of vibe. I was a local celebrity there - had billboards all over the place."

Regarding his impressions of Paris, Davey said one of his mates was dating her at the time and "she was very nice".

But while he enjoyed the fast-paced LA scene, after 10 years he said Australia was calling him home.

"My mum missed me," he said.

Davey said it was a crazy, fun time but he couldn't live there forever.

"It's good to be back in Australia."

His highlights over in the States include meeting Barbara Walters when they did a spot on The View, and performing a little routine with comedian Jimmy Kimmel at the 2006 Hurricane Katrina comic relief fundraiser.

"Meeting those people and going to the video music awards (VMA) - that was fun."

Down the track Davey hopes to expand his career.

"I also like to host things. I have my real estate licence to fall back on but I'd like to get into entertainment radio.

"But right now I'm just happy doing this and helping expand the show with the owner Paul Reynolds - he's a good boss."

When the crew returns to Gladstone ladies can expect a top girls' night out with policemen, an officer and gentleman, cowboy, GI Joe and a Magic Mike-style opening.
