About Matt Wallis

Keyboard Guitar Vocalist Covers/Tribute/Background
Electric Guitarist
Public liability insurance of £5 million

My musical repertoire consists of songs either vocal or instrumental, covering music from the 50s to the present day. My music is always performed live and I am very adaptable to any audience, my programs are never repeated, I always welcome requests. Experience I turned professional 30 years ago, entertaining and performing in many different types of venues and audiences. Clubs Hotels Holiday Parks and Theatres. My Clients Have Included: Royal Chelsea Pensioners Tittenhurst Park (King Hussain Of Jordan's Palace) Shearings Holidays Daish Holidays Waterside Holiday Park Chesil Beach Holiday Park Lakeside Cabaret Club Frimley Green. Hackney Empire London Performing Alongside Comedian Ted Rodgers (321) The Shadows Member: Brian Licorice Locking What I can offer to you and your venue. I have the ability to perform 2 instruments and sing on one song. My sound is not like the Keyboard player who just presses buttons and makes it look like he is producing the sound. If there is a Piano Solo I will play it live. With the variety of music I can sing and play, I am able to cater for the majority of my audience. Music from 50s to Present Day

One of the best days I have ever had. Matt was brilliant and his choice of music covered everything from the Beatles to George Ezra. I would recommend him to anyone that wants a really fantastic entertainer. Everybody that attended loved him

Matt was a wonderful performance, he worked well under pressure when the weather changed rapidly on us. He was fantastic with his audience, incredibly engaging. in addition to that, he is also incredibly talented and has a wonderful voice, worth every penny! we would love to have him back again.

Just to say thank you for your role in making our party such a success. You were superb. A very talented musician’, ‘we really enjoyed the music’, a very good entertainer’, ‘I didn’t stop dancing all night’ are some of the comments we received. Walter and Gill Sept 2019"

Matt Wallis, accompanying himself on guitar and keyboards. Material from Ricky Nelson, Elvis, Buddy Holly and Status Quo are sure fire winners in club land, and Wallis has an outstanding voice, big and strong, which suits such songs perfectly. The Stage Magazine
