This trio will transport you back to those exciting times when music shaped a generation.
Rob Dee has always been a fan of Billy Fury: “There was something about his voice that really got to me,” he says. “He doesn’t just sing a song, he lives every word; you can really feel the emotion in his voice”. Rob discovered his idol in 1963 when he heard Like I’ve Never Been Gone on the radio. And now, some 50 years later Rob is keeping Billy’s memory alive for his many loyal fans. You can hear Rob’s favourite Billy Fury song and many more, including I Will, I’d Never Find Another You, Jealousy, In Summer, Last Night Was Made For Love and, of course, Halfway To Paradise. Rob has recently recorded two CDs Memories Of Billy Fury Vol 1 & 2 where Billy Fury fans can find most of these songs.
With his powerful voice Martin Jarvis was always compared with Tom Jones and endlessly asked to perform a “Tom” song. Well one song always led to another and soon he was performing a complete Tom Jones Tribute Show all over the world from Vegas to Hong Kong. Since the success of the Reload album, the Brit Awards, his Knighthood and TV show The Voice, Tom has gained a new set of fans and Martin has blended the new songs in with the timeless favourites. Martin has also appeared alongside Tom on a video shoot for Black Betty, one his single releases. Martin Jarvis is the ultimate Tom Jones tribute.
