I am a professional singer and also teach singing and specialise in the older type of songs from the late 1950's through the 60's and into the 70's. Frank Sinatra, Cliff Richard, Tom Jones, Barry Manilow, Elvis, Bob Dylan, Beatles etc. When I sing the Sinatra goes down the best so I tend to do a lot of his songs. Sometimes I throw in an odd joke or two between songs. I am just over 60 years of age so I have been singing these type of songs for a good amount of time. To give you an idea of some of the tracks: Love Me Tender, Come Fly With Me, Witchcraft, Delilah, Congratulations, Blowing In The Wind, I Believe, My Way, New York New York etc. I have all my own equipment and depending on distance and the type of programme I have 2 different sound systems I can use.
