Alan Francis

from £475 in North West
Available Nationwide

Rat-Pack style Jazz singer Alan Francis specialises in bringing back the sounds of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Bobby Darin, Nat King Cole, Tony Bennett, Andy Williams and many more. Keeping things fresh you can also expect to hear some modern classics from the likes of Michael Buble, Snow Patrol, and Adele.

Alan performs a classic repertoire of jazz/swing standards and heartfelt ballads from the golden era of song. While respecting these timeless songs as they were written, Alan is not a tribute artist, instead preferring to sing in his own distinctive voice, with a smooth, rich, easy and soulful vocal delivery. Following success in a competition in 2004, Alan started performing all over the North West, covering everything from 50’s Swing to the latest chart hits.

Alan has spent recent years serenading shoppers in top department stores throughout the country to support a variety of charities including Marie Curie Cancer Care, Macmillan, and many more. Meanwhile he has continued to captivate audiences at a variety of events, weddings and functions. Recent highlights have included performing before the likes of William Roache (Coronation Street's Ken Barlow), Edwin Van Der Sar, Matt Le Tissier and Ken Dodd, and singing on the steps of Concorde. Alan’s relaxed performance style and easy rapport with his audience make him ideal for weddings, corporate events, charity fundraisers, anniversaries, restaurants or any special occasion where that extra touch of class is required.

Testimonials

Keith Dalby - The Village, Oldham - Jun 2011

"Hi Alan, Just to say THANKS again for your singing today at The Village. I really enjoyed it - and I’m a hardened cynical “critic” with over 50 years of professional theatre and films behind me. You have a superbly warm, lyrical voice and perfect timing. We could both have listened all afternoon and more. It would be great to have you at our 5th wedding anniversary which will be August 2013 – but you will probably be playing the Palladium by then! Very best of luck, and thank you again."

Gary Knott - 50th Party - Mar 2011

"I am once again bowing to the King of Swing. Thanks again for a cracking night, you are the talk of Radcliffe! Keep belting out them tunes."

Jan - Wedding Reception - Aug 2010

"Thank you again for all you did for us on our wedding night.  We have had lots of compliments about you - you made it a very special time for us.  We are still on a high and looking forward to going on honeymoon tomorrow."
