Featured Artist Showcase

Gary Grace

One of the UK's most stylish vocalists, providing a touch of class at weddings, private functions and corporate events, Gary Grace appears throughout the UK & Europe and further afield aboard cruise liners. He sings timeless classics by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Matt Monro, Tony Bennett, Andy Williams, Bobby Darin, Nat 'King' Cole and Michael Buble, so swing is most definitely his thing!

Recent TV credits include 2 appearances on the BBC TV’s ‘Don’t Tell The Bride’ and SKY TV’s ‘Cruising With The Stars’.

Gary can appear solo or supply a variable sized band (up to an 8-piece). Where possible, he appears with an all-female band for a distinctive look and appeal.

You can choose some easy listening music for dinner or a drinks reception, something more up tempo for dancing, or a wide range of pop/soul & rock n roll classics – or a combination of them all.  If there’s no DJ, Gary will make his P.A. available to play background or dance music to finish the night.

Please take a look at the video and ask Apple County about Gary for a real touch of class!

Gary Jay

There are many tributes to The King but not many have been endorsed so enthusiastically by people who actually knew and worked with him! Gary Jay’s show is full of the familiar songs and moves which made Elvis a household name and bring back memories to so many.

Gary has worked world-wide and you can book him to be in your building complete with high-quality sound, lighting and stage set.

The Gatsby Girls

The 1920s makes a great theme for a party and if you add some professional glamour, you’ll have a winning combination! The Gatsby Girls will delight you with their Flapper fun and the frolics of the Speakeasy. Their Charleston is performed with infectious energy and you’ll want to join in (especially when they teach you the steps – very easy and great fun).

As you’ll see from the video clips, they’re happy on the smallest of stages or in the great outdoors. Let the Gatsby Girls bring you their own brand of glitz and sophistication!

Updated video here!

Geoff Taylor

This exceptionally talented artist has been singing and swinging for the last 25 years. Geoff Taylor brings his own brand of style to the timeless, evergreen tunes of the Kings of Cool. Geoff’s amusing patter and funny asides add to his onstage charm and audiences enjoy a relaxed and polished performance.

Very much at home with his own expertly recorded backing tracks, Geoff is equally happy to work with a live band so his performance lends itself to many different venues and occasions.

George McCrae

Performing solid-gold, No1 hits Rock Your Baby, You Can Have It All and It’s Been So Long, George McCrae is available for a limited number of dates at selected venues from September 2013.

In 1974, George’s soaring falsetto took Rock Your Baby to the very top of the British Singles Chart. The worldwide hit was voted Single Of The Year by Rolling Stone Magazine and announced the arrival of a truly legendary live performer.

George will be touring the world to perform the hit songs that saw him dubbed the ‘King of Disco Soul’ during the 70s and 80s. His pitch-perfect vocals have lost none of their quality – he still hits those amazing high notes as he thrills audiences with his exciting live shows.

George achieved 2 platinum singles, two platinum albums &14 gold records, with Rock Your Baby selling a staggering 80 million copies worldwide.

Apple County is delighted to be able to offer dates on George in association with his management company, so please take a look at these video extracts and contact us for details.

Week Commencing May 11, 2015: Gerry Graham's Travelling Pantos

Thinking about heading for the beach? Must be time to start thinking about panto ……….. oh yes it is!

In 2015, Gerry Graham’s cast of 6  will be touring Robin Hood – the Panto with their usual high quality script: fast moving, relevant and funny! There’s always a happy ending, the villains always get their just deserts, the principal boy is a thigh-slapping hero and the dames are outrageous without offending!

Every pantomime has an original musical score, with a combination of specially written character songs, pop classics and chart hits.

What would you need to provide? Well – an audience and a couple of dressing rooms just about covers it.  They can adapt to just about any stage with a portable, free standing set, stage lighting, quality sound and effects.

The video montage gives some info on this year’s show and cast pictures of their 2014 production.

Good Vibrations

You’ll definitely get Good Vibrations when you hear the superb vocal harmonies produced by this excellent band. They recreate the Beach Boys sound immaculately and their slick show includes all the favourites you’d expect to hear:

Get Around, California Girls, God Only Knows, Barbra Ann, Deuce Coupe, Darlin’, Don’t Worry Baby, Fun Fun Fun, Rhonda, Sloop John B, Surfin’ USA, Good Vibrations, Wouldn’t It be Nice, Do You Wanna Dance, etc. In fact, it would be surprising if you weren’t singing the songs already!

The sound on their video has been taken direct from their desk at live performances, so what you hear is definitely what you’ll get. Roll on summer!

Week Commencing Jan 28 2013: Grace Ellington

Grace Ellington sings with style and passion. Her extensive experience shows in each polished performance, with gorgeous costumes which complement her beautifully delivered presentation.

She’ll sing you plenty of classic soul tracks, some sultry blues or cool jazz – but if you want to party, she has some real party rhythms to get you on the dance floor. So if you like the great songstresses who gave the world some of the best jazz, blues and swing, then Grace is the one for you.

Available with expert musicians or great backing tracks.

The Great Team Bake Off

Ideal as a team building exercise or a festive treat, you and your team, or guests, can enjoy time with a professional pastry chef to make some scrumptious bakery treats, they’ll even let you loose on some recipes used at exclusive hotels.

The chef will judge categories such as technical, star bake & showstopper, awarding points for creativity, skill and taste. You can choose to make Afternoon Tea, Cake Mosaics, Canapé Creations or Christmas Gingerbread constructions amongst others.

Then, depending on the time of year, afternoon tea can be served on the lawn or patio, and they’ll even bring along a badminton and cricket set with a few classic board games for the group to enjoy a perfect afternoon indoors or outdoors.

Take a look at the video montage here and get in touch so we can explain how this could work for you.
