About Tony

Singer
Northampton
Public liability insurance of £1 million
Verified profile
Soloist with great sets of Rat Pack standards and modern classics from 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and beyond! Over 100 songs to choose from!

I love singing ! I came to it quite late in life, but now I can't stop! I also love seeing people enjoying themselves so bringing the two together has been a real joy for me. I take my responsibility to entertain very seriously and I will do my utmost to ensure your guests, customers or friends have a great time. Seeing people engage with me and sing along gives me a real boost, that said I will always sing with a smile on my face and in my voice regardless of audience participation :-)

"We were very excited to see Tony perform at our Marina BBQ on Saturday evening, and he did not disappoint. He made the evening, with great interaction with the audience, getting people singing and dancing. Extremely professional and kept going as the light failed and the evening temperatures dropped. We look forward to seeing him at next years event and will need to include a bigger dance area !.

Tony is a true professional, and yet easy-going, reliable and a pleasure to work with. Aside from being a great singer and a fantastic entertainer for the audience, he is well organised, punctual and polite. He can read the audience well and pick the best repertoire for the event. In reference to his performance for us in Chiswick London, he dazzled the listeners and put on a wonderful show visually and vocally, engaging the members of the audience and receiving a big round of applause. Highly recommend.
