About Peter smith

Peter smith performs some of his favourite songs from the golden age of swing, with classic Soul n Motown hits thrown in for good measure.
Singer
Rochdale
Public liability insurance of £10 million

With songs from legends such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Nat King Cole and more recently Michael Buble (just to name a few) Peter gives us his interpretation of some of the best hits from a time when music was life! If you're looking for a little more, Peter can follow this up with some classic Soul n Motown and floor fillers from the decades to give you a party to remember. Sit back and enjoy! Peter has been an entertainer for almost 30 years having started out in the business as a roadie for his Father and Uncle’s mobile disco, learning the art of entertainment from the tender age of 17. His first ‘gig’ was at the ripe old age of 19 when he was asked to sing at a family member's Silver Wedding Anniversary. His thoughts afterwards...a bit nervy but, wow, when do I get to do that again! The answer was the following week when he signed with a local Agent, the late Tony Thomas, who immediately saw his potential and invited him to hone his skills at a private entertainment school that Tony ran for a select few. These lessons soon paid off as by the age of 21, in a field where the customer was demanding more and more, Peter was seen as one of the top Entertainers in the Agency, which itself, was one of the biggest in the UK. Several years passed during which Peter earned his spurs played the length and breadth of the UK, even being asked to perform in Europe, During this time, he became the entertainer of choice for many of the top hotels in and around Manchester including the Victoria & Albert, where he worked for almost 6 years, The Lowry, Piccadilly Hotel, Portland Hotel and The Britannia Hotel, gaining a reputation as an ultra professional entertainer who always made sure that he did and gave everything to make the evening be the best that it could be. Available throughout the UK for Weddings, Private Parties, Public Events and Corporate Functions.
