They don't make them like that anymore!
Enthusiastic solo performer. Using backing tracks and playing the guitar - I cover many of Buddy Holly's hit songs as well as those of Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Del Shannon, The Kinks, Eddie Cochran and many more.
I encourage people to sing along, clap along - get up and have a dance or even play one of the tambourines I bring with me. My aim is simple - to provide great music from a great era and having members of the audience enjoying themselves, maybe reminiscing about hearing / seeing these acts back in the 50s or 60s. My motto? "They don't make them like that anymore!"
A fun 1hr - 2hr performance. A journey through 1950s music 60's and beyond. Plenty of banter and audience participation thrown in and a Buddy Holly tribute section.
Blackpool stage experience & radio play.
