Services From Dave Octave Sings
Now That's What I Call Musical Bingo!
Dave just loves singing those timeless songs of the Big Band era made famous by the likes of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole and Michael Buble – adding a Las Vegas touch to any event. His performance is relaxed, polished, professional and full of fun and personality!
Dave isn't a tribute act but captures the style, ease and grace of the swing kings with an undeniable voice that comes straight out of the Rat Park stable.

Absolutely perfect! This made my birthday really special and I’m so glad I found Dave on here. From start to finish he was great. Communicated the whole time, arrived exactly as planned and really made an effort with all my friends and family. The music set was exactly like the video posted online and he had everyone up and dancing. Just brilliant. This could not have been any better, we just wish we had booked him for an even longer set. Don’t hesitate to book - great singer, reliable, professional and very personable. Thank you so much for making my birthday special.

It depends on the amount of sets you want and how your evening is set to run. Generally, for two 45 minute sets I would take a 10 minute break however that can be lengthened if it suits your even better.
