I am seeking to further my singing career as a lounge singer and perhaps performing as a soloist or duets in Cabaret, performing at Corporate functions, Restaurants, Weddings, Birthdays and Cruise Ships to name a few. I take pride in my professional presentation as a singer and I have a versatile Rock 'n Roll voice, but am also highly suited to soulfull crooning and heartfelt ballads.
Lately I have been performing as a Dine & Dance entertainer in clubs etc, specialising in singing all those rare hits of yesteryear that no one else is singing now.
