About Kevin O'Brien
Kevin O’Brien is now firmly established as one of the country’s leading exponents of Sinatra-style singing. Star of several ‘Tribute to Sinatra’ concerts, Kevin has performed at the Royal Festival Hall, London Palladium, Talk of the Town, Victoria Palace, and at London’s top ‘jazz rooms’ the Pizza on the Park and Pizza Express, Soho. He has also toured internationally, appearing at the Mint, Marina, Stardust, Dunes, Alexis Park, Sahara and Sands hotels in Las Vegas and at clubs and festivals in the States, Australia and Europe.
Kevin makes clear that he is not a Sinatra imitator, but his singing is a celebration of the genre – relaxed, swinging, sophisticated and stylish – drawing on the wonderful Sinatra repertoire of classic ‘standards’ and occasionally including some of his own tasteful compositions.
Kevin combines his touring and club appearances with performances at private functions including weddings, parties and corporate receptions, and he was booked through Function Junction a few years ago to provide the live music for Joan Collins’s wedding reception as featured in OK magazine. Joan rated his performance “excellent”!
Kevin is backed by top musicians, all of them British jazz ‘names’ in their own right. Our quoted price is for Kevin and a trio of piano, bass and drums, but he can also appear with a just a pianist or with a bigger group – even up to a full 17-piece big band. Kevin normally performs two 40-minute sets, but this can also be varied to suit the occasion.
