A review by Derek Smith in the Stage & Television magazine at a Showcase in Liverpool recently said of Paul.
“In the first of two appearances during the evening, Scotland-based Paul Philips, in Roy Orbison guise, looked and sounded the part, and in true Big O style, never looked in danger of even breaking sweat. There’s not that many Orbison tributes on the circuit, so when you catch one, you want it to be a fitting homage to the great man. He’s near enough to the great man to please the fussiest Orbison fan.”
“You don’t see that many Kenny Rogers tributes around, but if you want to catch or book one, I’d heartily recommend the Paul Philips version. Having performed as Roy Orbison earlier, this was better, Philips looking the real deal from start to finish. Having transformed himself into the ‘next era’ Rogers in black, he looked and sounded eerily like the man himself.”
“Have guitar, will travel,” he told the audience when being interviewed by Mark Ritchie - being based in Scotland; he’s going to be travelling a fair bit to gigs.
The Paul Philips shows are perfect for cruise ships, corporate events or theatre and getting 3 very different shows from one act has to be good value. A good nostalgia show with The Roy Orbison Story; an easy listening show with Kenny Rogers Tribute and of course Paul Philips as himself a vocal comedy entertainer / compere and all round seasoned performer.
