Why not have a singer with a difference?

 

 

 

 

Why Vintage? ... Why Jazz?

 

Vintage jazz of the 1940's & 50's era is a huge passion of mine with my musical hero being Ella Fitzgerald.  I sing a lot of her back catalogue as not only do her songs sit nicely in my vocal range but some people have even said my singing voice takes a slight liking to hers.  Ella was simply phenomenal in my eyes and untouchable, so if I can do her songs even a little bit of justice in the way I perform them, I am happy.


What is Vintage Jazz Singing?

 

For me, my vintage era is primarily the 1940’s and 50’s.  I love to choose songs that will put a smile on your guests faces and make them feel relaxed and comforted.  It is incredibly common for people to think a CD is playing when they initially arrive at your event; until they see me in the corner singing my heart out.  This for me is the best compliment I could get!   

Although I mainly perform hits from the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra and Etta James, I can provide a wartime set of songs for those who require this for their themed event.  So please do state his in your initial enquiry.
 

We booked Alex for a 79th birthday and a 58th wedding anniversary party combined. She arrived with a warm smile and exceptional professionalism. The smile instantly put the birthday girl at ease. Alex had also taken the time to put a list of songs together that reflected the era needed. I was overjoyed to see the happy couple dance the night away, obviously reminiscing over times gone by.

I have no hesitation in recommending Alex, her presence at this very special event made the occasion even more memorable. If you want to take a trip back to the 50s, she is a must. A huge thank you from us xxx

Why book Miss Jones?

 

 

What I feel makes me different is I always perform fully dressed in vintage from head to toe.  For me my appearance is just as important as my performance.  If you are transporting your audience back in time to an era of romance, nostalgia and escapism you need to create that all immersive experience... and that is exactly what you get with my many shows.   Plus I am a professional singer trained in Musical Theatre with five years experience in the industry.  So professionalism, perfection and performing to the highest quality is incredibly important to me.
