hello,i am francis Kelly swing/ratpack/jazz vocalist.totally self contained with high quality pa/lighting/backing tracks. for all occasions.

I spent many years playing drums with top Scottish showband silverbird,had a great time touring the lenth and breadth of the uk & Ireland.13 yrs with an amazing band,but in the back of my mind was this feeling,i wanted to be out front singing,not singing any old thing,singing swing music,big band music,songs by the famous ratpack,timeless songs that are loved bye young and old alike.too make these fab songs sound as good as I can get them,i have invested in a quality state of the art sound system that can handle events of up to 400 people.i also have dj programme that I can use for longer jobs.if swings not your only thing,i do a wide selection of pop songs from the beatles to elo and a lot in between.i am based in grangemouth in scotland but i travel all over,this is something i am well used to.unfortunately i do charge more for the longer journeys.if you are in any doubt,please get in touch for a performance times are usually 2 x 45 mins or 2 x 1hr spots.i always have music playing before i go on and at my break.also for a short time after i finish.please,if you have any questions,it doesent cost anything to get in touch and let me talk you through what i can do for you. kind regards francis Kelly swing king
