2022 Award Winning Michael Jackson Tribute Act
David is one of the most experienced Michael Jackson Tribute acts. He has been performing as the legendary MJ since the tender age of five. Putting on sold out shows, making special TV appearances, interviews, celebrity parties, high profile events, MJ album launches, performances around the world, and running a Michael Jackson Dance Company – it simply is a 7 day week Michael Jackson lifestyle. David has performed in thousands of shows, each performance resulting in a huge demand for his return, proving he is one of the most popular tribute acts worldwide with a top class reputation. Yet to receive any negative feedback from a client. He has worked closely with many famous faces, some who have requested performances at their own events, some who have even travelled to his show just for their own opportunity to see him again. David is 100% devoted to Michael and this is easily noticed with every single performance, his live singing, dancing and show stopping moves are fully guaranteed to have you singing along to all your favourite songs.

A spectacular performance and exactly what we'd hoped for. Absolutely brilliant. David is a five-star performer.

Blown away by the performance from David and the girls. Quite literally made our night and an absolutely fantastic performance from start to finish. They made our birthday celebrations feel very special, and David's attention to detail was second to none.

I would not hesitate to book again and we highly recommended these guys. As an MJ fan, he is quite literally the best at what he does. Great event, great night and they made us feel like friends rather than a client.

Amazing all round
Thank you

Absolutely fantastic. Have to say David Boakes is a first rate performer. He did a surprise act for my missus’ 40th birthday party. She was over the moon and David got everyone involved and made the night one that none of us will never forget. Thank you for making it a special night and best wishes for the future.

David and his dancers really made our party. He was so amazing and so engaging with the children and all our guests. He got everyone up dancing and singing. Best party ever thank you so much.

We weren't sure if the kids at our son's birthday party would be completely engaged but they all enjoyed joining in the dancing and were raving about the event for days afterwards. Great performer and money well spent!

I booked very last minute and now feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to have David entertain at my sons birthday. He was so lovely with the children and an amazing Michael Jackson. Thank you for making it such a memorable occasion.
