Hi, to all viewing my Profile. I'm a full-time Professional Entertainer and if I'm not working then I'm practising my Singing, my Comedy Routines, updating my Disco and Karaoke catalogues etc. In short; I work a minimum of 12 hours a day, every single day, to keep me well ahead of the competition. In booking me for any and or, all of my services combined, you can be sure that you're in the hands of a very experienced professional. As a Singer, I cover over 150 of the world's top acts, with a repertoire of well over 200 great songs, from the late 50's right up to the present day. As a Top-Flight DJ, with a massive collection of hits, covering virtually all styles, decades and genres, you can be sure I will have what you and your guests want and can serve requests up in seconds! I have a fantastic looking, lighted rig, with extra lights and also a fog machine if requested. As a Karaoke DJ, if it's out on Karaoke, I will 99% certainly have it for you. Light show etc. as above. I'm also a Stand-Up Comedian, with a wide variety of routines and I can adapt my act to suit an audience. I don't single audience members out to get the laughs and I don't do the deeply offensive stuff unless it's specifically requested. Yes, you'd be surprised what people sometimes want! :-) In booking me for any of the above, you may also have a mix and match of anything I do but, please, make this known at the time of your request. :-) Your choice, always.

I booked John for my 60th birthday party, he sang a number of songs and got the party going. He was very professional, and has a great voice. My guest and I had a great time . I would definitely recommend him.

John was absolutely fantastic! He travelled a fair old way to come and entertain us all, from 70s music all the way to current chart music. He sang for a couple of hours and then provided a disco/karaoke for all. If you need an all in one entertainer then John is your man!! We shall definitely be seeing him at some stage in the future. Bravo John ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป (10 / 10)Steve Sumner

Customer questions

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

I always try my utmost to be flexible, to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change in the run-up to the event just let me know and, we'll see how best to accommodate you.

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

Yes, I play music between singing sets as standard and, as I'm also a Pro DJ, you can be sure they're well chosen.

How much time do you need to set up?

As a Singer, I need just 20 minutes to set up and do a sound-check. As a DJ and or, Karaoke DJ, I will need 45 minutes due to the volume of music equipment and lights involved.

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

You could do but, due to many years experience, I can always read an audience and I can adjust as I go along. If there's a particular order you want songs to be sung in, just let me know and we'll try do that for you.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes. I have several Top-Notch PA systems that I use and after consultation, I will choose what's best for you and your event. The sound is always exceptional.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes, given enough time, I can learn a few new songs for you, to be performed on your special day, for sure. There is a fee of ยฃ30 per song for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.
