What do your clients love most about your performances?
I am an expert in my field of vintage music, and all the genres of vintage music from the First War, 1920s/30s, 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. I have made a detailed study of the various singing styles, and my act is always called 'authentic' and 'very professional'. I am also lively and entertaining in my style of singing, but can equally sing background music.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
The London Palladium I have undertaken major corporate Events at London Hotels including The Mandeville and Kensington Olympia. Corporate clients include Marks and Spencer PLC. Vintage Events include: Goodwood Revival, National Trust, Twinwood Festival, Imperial War Museum, and many London venues including Selfridges, Mandeville Hotel and Skylon Restaurant.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
I like all vintage singers and vintage bands, including Glen Miller and Vera Lynn. I also really love the boybands of the 1960s, for example, Dave Clarke 5, Herman's Hermits and The Kinks/Beatles.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
The London Palladium.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
It is no problem at all if timings of the Event change. I will always adapt to the revised timings.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Yes, I will always put background music on in between sets, and provide a DJ if required.
How much time do you need to set up?
I usually require one hour to set up, at a stretch, half an hour.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Yes, most definitely. I can also provide other songs if required, as I have a very large repertoire of vintage songs spanning six decades of vintage music.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, absolutely. I bring all my own equipment, and will also bring my ukulele which I can play acoustically, walking around from table to table (and guest to guest) if required.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
I would prefer it if clients chose songs from my Encore song-lists rather than brand new songs. However, I will always consider any requests and have look at them.

Zoom Singing Shows
This is a base price, and quite low compared to my live Shows, but I don't have to travel anywhere, and would be happy to sing for this price. I could perform songs from the Roaring 1920s (jazz) to the 1940s and 1950s, and also put in some songs from the Swinging 1960s as well. The 1960s act is lively and suitable for parties. Please enquire through Encore and please look at my Reviews as well.
