About Andy Blackaby-Iles

Your No. 1 Party entertainer! With 10 years of performance experience, I'm a multi instrumentalist who knows how to get a party started.
Public liability insurance of £1 million

I've been training as a singer since the age of 8 years old, which gives me 22 years of the performance bug. I've performed professionally at large holiday parks and as a self employed performer since 2012. I've played venues of over 2000 people, hosting and entertaining for holidaying guests, and as part of a function band both in the UK and overseas. I can play solo or with a full band, and with a love of music spanning the decades, I can tailor my act to you. I am a full time musician, meaning I can spend the time to make your event perfect for you. Some of my highlights have been the 5 years I spent as a lead vocalist at Butlin's, performing in children's shows and also evening headline entertainment, in front of thousands every week. I also spent 6 months in Mallorca performing with my wife, with three evening sets. As a child I caught the performance bug performing in local theatre and opera, and that passion has continued to grow as I've got older. I'm also a massive fan of musical theatre.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I am a skilled host of an event, so not only will you have amazing songs, you will have an engaging performer ready to interact with you and your guests!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I spent 5 years working at Butlin's, performing in front of crowds of up to 2,000 and hosting the entire night. I've also spent a year working on P&O ships, alongside TUI hotels in residency contracts. I've also toured the South East of England including venues like The Hawth in Crawley with theatre groups.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I love Indie Rock, particularly from the 90s onwards. I am also a huge fan of Musical Theatre and shows from all the way back to the 40s up to today, and 80s pop like Spandau Ballet is so catchy for an evenings entertainment!

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I would have to say my time spent at Butlin's - I've had some incredible evenings there.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I will be as flexible as I possibly can. If timings change, please let me know as soon as possible - I often have multiple gigs in a day and so I will doing everything I can to ensure I'm still available at the best time for you.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Of course! I have it as an additional extra if you require it for the whole evening between sets, due to the added equipment required - however, I will play background music while I set up regardless.

How much time do you need to set up?

I give myself a minimum of 45 minutes set up time for a purely vocal set, and with guitar as well I will need a further half an hour.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

I usually build a set list based on my experience in the industry over the last 10 years, ensuring each evening builds and builds to make sure you have an amazing time. However, on our Zoom consultation, we will work together to ensure that we are able to build the best experience possible for you.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

As much as possible, yes - however I will need to discuss the specifics or your venue with either the event booker or the venue to ensure I have everything I need.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

This is an optional extra that I would be more than happy to undertake!
