Jeff Hooper Big Band
Jeff Hooper is one of the most talented and best liked singers on the European music scene, and developed his talent as a singer with the famous Syd Lawrence Orchestra, tonight brings his 14 piece big band for the second time to our Club.
Early in his career Jeff worked with Matt Monro (who taught him how to tie a bow tie!), Morecambe and Wise, and Stephane Grappelli. Jeff came second in the Star Search USA show in Hollywood and was then voted one of the top three rising stars in the world by the Frank Sinatra Music Society.
Jeff breathes new life into the music of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Nat “King” Cole, Vic Damone, Jack Jones, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jnr, Matt Monro and Mel Tormé with a relaxed, emotive style. In a music world dominated by cyber-pop and short-lived wonders, Jeff’s enduring quality is a breathtaking voice and sheer magnetism that has survived the changing trends.
This isn’t only because the songs he sings are time-honoured masters in their own right, it’s down to his unique voice, chestnut warm and chocolate rich, classic, certain and reassuring. Jeff likes to give really well presented shows with entertaining dialogue and, combined with his magnificent singing, has made him a popular figure on the music scene.
