My speciality is 1950's and 1960's pop music including covers by the likes of The Everly Bros., Billy Fury, Elvis, The Beatles, Jim Reeves, Eddie Cochrane, Hank Williams, Tommy Steele, Guy Mitchell, Cliff Richard, The Rolling Stones, Buddy Holly, Ricky Nelson etc. etc. I create a good rapport with the audience and can usually get them to sing along and often get up and dance whatever their age. I also have a "formal" sing along when I hand out song sheets and a few instruments to form a percussion section. These days I do a fair amount of acoustic numbers particularly at smaller venues and I also have a "busking kit" as well as my fully blown PA. My web site, poppaj.co.uk gives more detailed information
