The gentleman singer, with a gentle personality and a huge carefully chosen selection of the classiest hits from 1940 to the present day. Having worked as a high profile Elton John tribute among other things, Berkeley is a seasoned and expert musician and arranger with a set that always promises "SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE". This compact brand new show features a tenor sized electro acoustic ukulele, and works well in cosy venues, where the audience want to connect. Many P.A. options available, and a discount is offered if the house provides the P.A.
