A bit of nostalgia today with my version of Engelbert's 'The Last Waltz'. This is a song that reminds me of Sunday afternoons when Mum would put a bit of Engelbert on while cooking the Sunday roast. It's easy to dismiss Engelbert as cheesy kitsch because of his ridiculous stage name and schlager-style schmaltz, but Gerry Dorsey has an amazing...

Another show in the very beautiful Cave Castle Hotel & Country Club. For more info please visit: Cave Castle March 17 - Mikey Powell Sings The Crooner legends Show Hope to see you there! :)   Mikeypx    ...

As I've mentioned in a previous post, I always consider myself really lucky when I'm invited to sing at beautiful historic venues so I thought I'd share this one as well. Willington Hall Hotel in Tarporley is a country house and estate in the Cheshire countryside. Apparently they host more than 70 weddings a year but...

Doing a gig in Bathgate in Scotland with Danny Roman as Tom Jones, then none other than Susan Boyle pops in to our dressing room to say hello before watching the show. Apparently she loves a bit of Tom Jones and Michael Buble so it was lovely of her to welcome us to Bathgate Regal Theatre. Mikeyp x ...

It's worth mentioning to anyone who visits my site that as well as being behind the microphone I also love being behind the lens too. My other professions are photography and design, and even though I've worked for years on more corporate and creative stuff I'm also being asked to shoot a lot more weddings these...

A very short clip of Scott singing Jackie Trent's 'What Would I Be' on a British TV programme back in the 60s. I'm not sure what the name of the programme was so maybe someone can enlighten me - Possibly 'Mr & Mrs Music' or 'Words and Music'?  - I wasn't around at the time so...

This is the very first track I ever made. It was also my first attempt at trying to record something at home after buying a keyboard that gave me the ability to make my own backing tracks, even if I couldn't play keyboards - I just listened to the original Matt Monro track and worked...

It's strange to think that someone was listening to one of my tributes, then shared it on the original artists fan page where other fans add likes and comments without realising it wasn't who they thought it was. A Scott Walker fan recently posted one of my videos on his fan page thinking it was The Walker Brothers. It was only...

Join me on Saturday 13th February at Formby Hall Golf Club's Valentine's Gala Ball. I'll be singing some lovely stuff in a Buble-Sinatra-Matt Monro-Scott Walker-Nat King Cole-Elvis-Barry White style, and getting you up for a spot of dancing and romancing. Sound good? Book now because I know tickets are going fast for this one. I hope to...
