About Diane

Pianist
Hartlepool
Fully self contained female vocalist. 25 years experience covering every kind of music in every kind of venue. Friendly and warm persona

At 26 years old I played Sandy in Grease and there after started a cabaret career working all over the south east. Learning and honing my skill in the hotels of Bournemouth where I was regularly likened to the comedian Marti Caine due to my comical personality. During the years I have worked in duo's trios and bands as well as on my own as a self contained singer. I have worked in every venue imaginable, bars, hotels, restaurants, ships,bandstands, barns etc. I'm regularly booked for weddings,birthdays,masonics as well as dinner cabaret and tribute shows. I absolutely love my job and in all the years I have never lost my passion for entertaining.

Song list

It would be impossible to list all the songs I cover on here. Having worked solidly as a singer for the past 25 years I have covered every hit during those years from Adele, WInehouse, Kylie, Madonna, Bassey, Streisand, whitney, Mariah, Tina,Pink, Cher,katy Perry, Britney etc etc. Not to mention, Abba, Steps,Beautiful South etc etc. I cover every era from the 40's up to date. A massive fan of west end musicals, Jazz, rock n roll and pop. I learn 4/5 new songs a month keeping up with the charts and adding more obscure older hits to my vocabulary. for example this month aug 17 included Ariana Grande and Dorothy Squires.

A thoroughly entertaining and professional performer, with a great voice, and warm on-stage personality. Can adapt to various styles, including pop, jazz, and musical theatre. Her pop repertoire spans the decades, so has songs for all age groups. She also provides an excellent 40s/wartime show, 60s show, and musicals show. Highly recommended.
