Being an entertainer was unavoidable for Kevin as his father was a singer/pianist, his mother a 1950s model and members of his family have appeared in films along- side Richard Burton, Peter Sellers, Michael Caine and David Niven.
At around the age of five Kevin first discovered `the American song book`, singing Pennies from Heaven accompanied by his father, whose constant renditions of Gershwin, Porter and Berlin were to leave an irreversible impression. By his early twenties, Kevin found himself in the company of and performing with other like minded aficionados. Their profound knowledge and musicianship helped forward his studies. These included American saxophonist Spike Robinson, John Critchinson (piano accompanist with Ronnie Scott), and bass player Lennie Bush, who sessioned with Frank Sinatra on his album Great Songs from Great Britain.
Kevin has performed at a huge variety of venues ranging from world class hotels, corporate events (large & small), jazz clubs, stately homes, TV company, an Airshow and at a premiership football match at Southampton F.C. He performed on the 'JAZZ ESSEX Take Two' CD with many high profile musicians and his voice was used by the globally recognized composer Joseph O'Brien for a USA radio advert. His band are high profile and award winning (UK and USA) session musicians in their own right and have performed with some of the greatest artists of our time including Tony Bennett, Liza Minnelli, Rod Stewart and Elton John. They have appeared on TV programmes such as Top of the Pops, The Big Breakfast, Johnny Vaughan Tonight and in numerous West End Shows including The Rat Pack - Live from Las Vegas. Celebrities and crowned heads of Europe are among the many who have enjoyed their wonderful talents.
Kevin can be booked to perform as a Sinatra, Dean Martin or Ratpack Tribute or for his hugely popular Jazz/Swing sets using a wide repertoire of songs from the Great American Songbook which are tailored perfectly for his greatly varied clientele. All of his performances are delivered with bona fide stage presence, bringing red-carpet style at no extra charge. He performs effortlessly not only the less challenging songs but also the more vocally difficult. He uses only the highest quality live recordings of American big band arrangements or can be backed by anything from a piano to full orchestra.

The result of all this ĶĶĶĶĶ a truly memorable experience.
