About Rob

Born to Entertain - Forever the Showman! Bringing fun, lively entertainment to any event!
Singer
Pontefract
Public liability insurance of £1.5 million
Verified profile

Rob was born to entertain!! His love of music and being the 'centre of attention' come together on stage in spectacular fashion, as he performs his take on some of the biggest hits from the past 50years! Starting his singing career in only December 2015 - Mad Friday in Wakefield no less - Rob lists Freddy Mercury, Michael Jackson and Meatloaf as some of his biggest musical influences. Aspiring to bring their styles of power and energy to his own shows! A big fan of Robbie Williams - often obvious from his performance - he loves nothing more than seeing his audience enjoying themselves by singing & dancing along. With a fantastically wide vocal range combined with his brilliant personality, this is a show not to be missed!

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes - can include lights and smoke machine if required and venue permitting.
