Description

Price from: £150

Typically perform over 2 x 1 hour sets.
I tell the story of Blondie's rise to international mega-stardom, through the first set featuring well-known and iconic Blondie tracks from the late 70's through to today.

In the second set I feature songs from other well-known artists and bands with blonde (and previously blonde) vocalists including (but not only) Elle King, Duffy, Fleetwood Mac, ABBA, The Primitives, Transvision Vamp, Dolly Parton, Eurythmics, Dusty Springfield, The Police, Ellie Goulding and even bands like The Sweet and Black-eyed Peas (when Fergie was blonde). So my audiences get the best of both worlds.

Blonde & Beyond - 2 x One Hour Sets

I am a solo vocalist performing a tribute to the songs of Blondie, in the first set, and, in the second set, the songs from all decades, from a wide mix of blonde female and male vocalists or bands with (predominantly) blonde vocalists. Typically, I perform 2 x 1 hour sets with a 15/20 minute break and encores if required. I require about 45 mins to 1 hour to set up the PA We have our own sound system and coloured party lighting (these change colour) My sound manager will need a table/desk to set the PA equipment up on and run the sound from. I am based in Northampton but will travel within reason Start and end times are flexible depending upon the client and venue. There are very few Blondie tribute acts in the UK. I believe I am the only one in the Northants area. To be able to provide a mix of Blondie and other Blonde vocalists gives an audience the best of both worlds with plenty of variety. Blonde & Beyond is suitable for all ages, venues and events and also offers the audience the chance to keep dancing and singing, after the gig - if there is still time to do so - by running a disco service.

Blonde & Beyond

Solo Female Vocalist - 2 X 1 Hours

While I do promote myself as a Blondie tribute act, I also perform songs from any genre, if a special type is required or specific songs are requested. I have spent the last 15 years being lead vocalists in covers bands in the Bucks/Northants area and I cover rock, indie and popular music from all decades from solo female and male artists to bands, so the range is very broad and I have a lot of experience of engaging with audiences of all ages. For this act I use backing tracks which I find to be very versatile for the act. I have a dedicated sound engineer who manages the equipment and sound. I can perform 2 sets of up to an hour each, with a short break in between. I require about an hour to set up and sound-check. My act is unique in so much as I'm not aware of anyone else who promotes themselves as a Blondie tribute with songs from predominantly blonde vocalists as my main act. However, if required I can simply sing any songs as required for the occasion.
