Michael Bublé/Rat Pack
Back in 2002 Mike Powell appeared on ITV’s Stars In Their Eyes paying tribute to 60’s pop legend Scott Walker singing ‘The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore’. From nearly backing out of rehearsals to his winning performance, Mike has developed into one of the UK’s leading tribute artists with his critically acclaimed ‘Tribute To The Crooners’ show singing Matt Monro, Engelbert, Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Tony Bennett, Andy Williams and many more.
From 2010 Mike will be featuring a new show in the style of the great Michael Bublé. Capturing the essence of Michael Buble’s legendary live shows and featuring his greatest hits, ballads and showstoppers – Including ‘Haven’t met you yet’, ‘I’ve got the world on a string’, ‘It had better be tonight’, ‘Home’, ‘Sway’ and many more. So, for your wedding reception, party or corporate event this show guarantees to be a perfect accompaniment.
“Mike has discovered that the vocal timbre of Michael Bublé is well within his grasp. Buble songs are notoriously difficult to cover due to the often complete phasing required to do them justice. Mike seems to have the knack of reproducing the tight, across the beat style of the real thing and his place in the tribute market would seem to have stretched yet further in terms of appeal, given the accuracy and ease of his vocal impression.”
