Description

Most of my gigs predominantly feature songs from the big band/swing era in the style of the great crooners of the 20th century such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr, Nat 'King' Cole, Tony Bennett, Andy Williams, Engelbert Humperdink, Matt Munro, Barry Manilow and Michael Buble.
However, it all depends on the customer's preference, and I am more than happy and capable of tailoring the music to include a wide variety of popular songs, ensuring that everyone enjoys the performance.

Phil Watson - Rat Pack Tribute Act - Manchester, North West England Event Location: Leeds Event Type: 90th birthday party 4th May 2024
We booked Phil for my father-in-law’s surprise 90th birthday party. His repertoire of songs was amazing, each one sung brilliantly. When Phil sung “My Way” to the birthday boy (his favourite song) there were tears all round. Phil made a special day even more memorable, I can’t recommend him highly enough.

Phil performed for us at our Italian inspired Theme Night and was an absolute wow with our guests! He read the room excellently, allowing the guests to enjoy their meal whilst he sang ballads and then ramped up the fun in his second set. Would definitely recommend!!

Experience

Initially played keyboards and sang backing vocals with local rock/pop bands back in the late 80's covering the North West club circuits.
I later moved to East Anglia and commenced a long association with the area's biggest big band: "The Jonathan Wyatt Big Band" performing standards and swing numbers of the big band era in theatres, hotels, social clubs and corporate functions.
In addition to this I also sang with the "Pavilion Big Band", the eight piece "Chris Walls Band" and "Sky-liner" function bands covering a wide range of styles from the 40’s through to the present day.
