I am Dean Gee - top class Dean Martin tribute/ Swing/Buble/Rock'n'roll/pop & dance 50s-80s. Can cover all UK. Bang-on vocals every time!

Dean has been singing professionally since 2001, initially in a male/female duo, and then solo since 2005. In the following years Dean has built a solid reputation as one of the best “Swing & Rat Pack” entertainers in the UK. He not only performs a stunning tribute to Dean Martin (so accurately that most aficionados in the audience usually think he is miming for the first few songs) which includes all the hits and DM’s banter, but also brilliantly covers all the greatest tracks by Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Sammy Davis Jnr, Nat King Cole and many other icons of that era. More recently, covers of Michael Buble have become an integral part of the repertoire, along with a wide range of classic pop, dance and rock ‘n’ roll numbers to get the party really going! Dean has built up a formidable body of experience. Having cut his teeth in the pubs and clubs during the early years, he has rapidly moved on to cruise ship work with P&O, First Choice (Island Escape, Island Star and Thomson Spirit) and Brittany – holiday resorts for Thomson’s Gold – corporate and private events – cabaret spots in high-class restaurants, hotels and other venues around the UK. He also performs regularly with other Rat Pack tribute artists, and indeed, played Dean Martin in a 2-week stage production of “The Rat Pack – Live from Vegas” in Portugal 2006. Dean even fronted a 7 piece swing band at a VIP beach party for 1200 guests at the Cannes Film Festival 2007! He has never had anything less than superb reviews and feedback from clients, and his vocal talents are fully matched by a totally reliable and professional attitude to his work. When you book Dean to perform for you, you will always get… • Complete professionalism – always on time, polite and reliable. • Versatility and adaptability – a huge repertoire and the ability to tailor the act to the audience including singing requests and dedications! • Exceeding expectations – regards the standard contractual 2x45 min sets as the bare minimum, and is always ready to go the extra mile for a good audience! • Vocal ability – a stunning combination of rich, mellow vocals, with power and emotional judgment of lyrics and tone, and always bang on the note! Dean’s ambition is to be recognized as the foremost Dean Martin/Swing cabaret act in the UK and abroad, and to continue to do something he loves – entertaining people! Dean Gee July 22, 2017

Customer questions

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

within reason this is no problem as long as I know in advance.

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

Yes I do this at many gigs. There may need to be an additional fee but this can be negotiated in discussion.

How much time do you need to set up?

Usually around 1-1.5 hours... this will always be done prior to guests arrival and then can play background music until performance.

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

I always try to accommodate any special requests, but advise leaving plenty of scope for me to assess the audience and adjust the set as I go along to maximise their enjoyment.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes. All I need is the appropriate working area/stage and a plug socket.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My major USP - apart from perfect vocal delivery everytime - is that I love to work with my audience and involve them (if appropriate) with plenty of interaction and banter. This is why I get so many repeat bookings.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I've worked in every conceivable type of venue... from cruise ships, foreign holiday hotels, holiday parks, casinos, restaurants, pubs and clubs, functions and garden parties etc.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Too many to list them all - but I seem to have mostly a sort of classic style akin to the great swing singers and crooners... however, I also cover tons of classic pop from 50-80s

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

I sang at a VIP party at the Cannes Film Festival in a huge marquee on the beach. I have also sung at weddings in top hotels such as the Dorchester in London etc.
