The Man And His Music's frontman David, has had a long career in the entertainment business. It all started at London's prestigious Italia Conti Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts where he trained for three years. This prepared him for many acting roles and a spell with the respected 'Break a Leg' touring theatre company. David's favourite role was as the drunken (it was real alcohol!) Doc Pearce in 'Calamity Jane' directed by Chris Wallis at the famous Unicorn theatre in the heart of London. During this period David also appeared in various pantomimes throughout the country. Television appearences include 'Lovejoy' and 'Inspector Allan' for the BBC and most recently 'Never Never' for Channel Four.
However it is as a cabaret performer that David is best known and particularly for his tribute to the legendary - FRANK SINATRA.
Initially David was part of the popular duo playing cocktail music for corporate events, hotels and restaurants. Then as a solo performer he appeared with his own trio at many jazz venues across Britain. This trio featured the cream of British jazz: Bobby Worth, Brian Dee and Matt Miles and was often augmented by the likes of Digby Fairweather and Spike Robinson. Around this time David headlined to wide acclaim at the world famous Cafe Royal - Green Room he went on to spend some time as compere at the venue and it was during one of these engagements that Las Vegas legend Buddy Greco said of David "This guy really is Sinatra"!
As an accomplished compere David went on to fill the same role at Chaplins night-club in London's West-end and followed this with a season at The Westlodge in Upminster. David has also appeared as a guest vocalist with stars such as the late Ruby Murray, Lionel Blair, George Williams, Charlie Smithers and the Beverley Sisters.
He has completed various seasons including British Holidays and Shearings Hotel group and is proud of his association with Noel Edmonds Airbourne Charity.
In the recording arena David was a featured vocalist at the age of only seventeen on the album 'Here's to the band' featuring Don Lusher, Kenny Baker and a full orchestra conducted and produced by Nick Ingman.
Known on the circuit as Britains Number one tribute to Ol' Blue Eyes, frontman David has toured Britain, Denmark and Sweden with his show 'The Man And His Music'. More appearances followed with Charlie Moon's theatre tribute to The Rat Pack and a sequal to this starring David as Sinatra with tributes to Sammy Davis, Dean Martin and Judy Garland from 'Stars in Their Eyes' premiered at the Thamseide theatre in Grays last year.
Constantly in demand as Sinatra, David recently played to 5000 people at an event sponsored by Nortel at the prestigious Alexandra Palace in London. This was followed by a sell-out show with Nova Casper as Tina Turner and Gerry Trew as Rod Stewart - 'TINA, ROD & FRANK' at The Dominion Theatre in London's West-end. Most recently David has toured as Sinatra in the Production of The Rat Pack and was featured by The Sun Newspaper for the phone in version of "Mandelson's Way" - (My Way with new lyrics by Richard Littlejohn).
As a result of his incredible similarity to Sinatra's voice, David has been used as Frank Sinatra in various radio advertising campaigns and he has been seen by millions of television viewers on 'London Tonight' and 'Barrymore' for ITV. Before David's performance of 'The Lady is a Tramp' with a big band led by Don Hunt on the popular Barrymore show, Michael introduced him as "Britain's answer to Harry Connick Jnr".
This compliment has a lot of fact in it, as both Harry and David have achieved so much at still a relatively young age and both are keeping the music of Sinatra and the other great swing/jazz singers of the twentieth century alive.
Over recent weeks David has also recorded a new version of "New York New York" with a 35 piece orchestra at Abbey Road studios for the new Atari PC Game "Tycoon City - New York".
Your Event The Man And His Music can provide background music in the form of general jazz classics for no extra charge. This is between sets only and maintains a mellow and classy mood, making your event run smoothly from start to finish.
"His recording of "New York New York" is too close to the original as recorded by my Father" - Nancy Sinatra - in a letter to Atari regarding a recording that David made for them with a 35 piece orchestra.
Please note: The Man And His Music is available in Scotland. Please speak to an Alive Network booking agent for more details.

"A resounding success with all the guests including several die-hard Sinatra fans. Interaction with the guests was brilliant if anything the applause interfered with hearing the act at times. Book him before he moves to Las Vegas!!"

""The Man + his music seemed to have somehow imbibed the very essence of ‘ole blue eyes’ before coming on stage. His performance was breathtaking - seriously!
The tone, the modulation and the rhythm in his voice throughout the evening was genuine Sinatra. His masculine charm was also apparent in his pristine characterisation and it was with effortless charisma he strolled into the audience and sang I’ve Got You Under My Skin while chatting and engaging with the ladies - just like the icon."

""Everyone at Sunbury Nursing Homes – the residents, relatives, visitors, staff and guests– really enjoyed The Man + his music's performance. It was our first time using a booking agency for entertainment and we have nothing but praise for the way Claire immediately got on our case and started sending through information about suitable acts for us. We didn’t really know what the quality of the act would be like but can confirm it was more than we had hoped for. We will no doubt be using Alive Network again for future functions.

""We looked at many places and spoke to a few but the one that stood out for professionalism and great customer care (thanks Rebecca) was Alive Network. We are so glad we chose you!
We were extremely happy with his performance, we just wish our guests had got up to dance just a little more but we over fed them at lunch! He was more that we expected and loved by our guests. He was on time, organised and fabulous.
We were extremely happy with the services provided by Alive Network and The Man + his music (Frank Sinatra) and would recommend both to anyone."

Just a short note to report on our event on Saturday 9th February.
The Man + his music and his colleagues put on 2 fantastic sets including just about every favorite of mine. He was exemplary in every way. A confident, engaging, and thoroughly professional entertainer appreciated by every guest but especially by Barbara and I. Having seen 'Rat Pack' shows in Las Vegas and London I can safely say there is nothing The Man + his music can learn from them. He is clearly at the top of the tree. My own participation in my chosen final number will be a memory I will always cherish.
Thank you for your assistance and we will contact you again if we go that 'grand' for any other function!
Barbara and Ray"

The evening went very well and every one I have spoken to enjoyed it.
Please could you thank The Man + his music again for me as I was rushing about at the weekend and did not get chance to say much to him.
