One of the best up and coming new singers on the swing scene! 

Jim McAllister has sung Sinatra with several Big Bands including The Syd Lawrence Orchestra (SLO), the Midland Youth Jazz Orchestra, Fat Chops, Gary Allcock Allstars & Sticky Wicket.

More recently, Jim sings in Debbie Isitt's new film 'Confetti' where he covers a number of classic hits on their sound track and he is also the voice over of Frank Sinatra himself in the trailer for the film.

Credits

Chris Dean MD of The SLO said "Jim will be a huge star very soon so cool a great look and what a voice." He has already been booked for America and the 2005 Rotary Club concert in front of 20000 people including The Queen to be shown live on the BBC. Many seasoned professionals have stated that Jim is the best singer of swing they have ever heard!

Jim recently appeared on on the John Darvall show on Saga Radio where one of his songs was played on air. The response from John and the other presenters was "WOW!! What a voice; that WAS Sinatra. Listeners I can tell you that we have a full studio today waiting to hear Jim sing and the reaction amongst us all was WOW!!"

The Frank Sinatra Society has previously booked Jim on several occasions with many commenting that Jim is the best they have ever heard. Jim also auditioned for the Rat Pack in the West End of London and the musical Director said that Jim has the best Sinatra voice he has come across in over 35 years.

Jim has just recorded the title song for the award winning new film "Confetti" to be released in April worldwide by Fox/Universal studios. The music director chose Jim as the best Sinatra sound he has ever heard in the world. Jim sings Cheek to Cheek.

Recent venues
Jim has sung at all the major theatres including his own sell out concert with an audience of over 800 at Dudley Town Hall with Chris Dean (SLO) as well as Big Band Swing weekends including The Glen Miller Festival in front of over 10000 and all types of parties from corporate to private.

Jim recently wowed another sold out audience at Liverpool's Philharmonic Hall with a 32 piece live Orchestra and has had several further sell outs around the country with the Syd Lawrence Orchestra. He has also been booked for the massive swing festival at Twinwoods at the owner's request. With weddings for corporate clients being booked 2 years in advance and even singing at event organisers' own weddings there is no better testament to Jim's quality and professionalism.

When time allows Jim enjoys singing with a touring Rat Pack show and is considering offers from Europe South Africa and the USA for tours next year.

He is also in the process of recording several original tracks one of which was written and accepted for but never recorded by Sinatra. It was given to Jim by the widow of the writer after she heard him sing and was amazed at how good he is.

Alive Network reference

Jim’s reviews speak for themselves. As one of the best swing singers in the business he proved this as he dazzled guests at the wedding party of a member of Alive Network staff where all staff agreed ‘it doesn’t get any better than this’.

"Can't rate alive network or Jim McAllister highly enough. Alive were easy to book through and always available for assistance, very friendly and helpful team, wouldn't hesitate to use again.

We booked Jim McAllister for my mother-in-laws 80th birthday, Jim was wonderful right from the outset, he was helpful and attentive to ensure the right balance and he listened to our requests. His charm and talent ensured the party started with style and continued to entertain our guests from teenagers to my 96 year old grandmother, and he made sure the party atmosphere continued until the end, thank you Jim for making me look like the party organiser of the year!

"I planned the wedding of my beautiful bride’s dreams and needed to be sure the entertainment would live up to the event. From the first dialogue with AN I was assured of a professional approach to cater for my needs. This service continued through the build up and supported the booking of Jim McAllister.

Jim was very friendly and a pleasure to work with. He delivered an outstanding service and really went down a storm with all guests. Everyone loves a dance at a wedding and what better type of dance than to take the one you love in your arms and enjoy some classic ‘Frank and friends’.

"It was an absolute to pleasure to work with Jim. He was professional, a lovely chap, timely and very talented. He was super flexible on what the couple wanted and really helpful.

The guests loved him and he sounded superb. He also looked so slick and his suit was impeccable. It is always good to see an artist that is beautifully turned out.

I had a mix up with payment which was totally my fault and he was brilliant about it. Sometimes you can book people who are demanding and hard to accommodate, Jim was excellent.

I would certainly recommend him again without hesitation.

Best wishes

Julie

"Just wanted to say 'thank you' for giving us all a brilliant time last Sunday at Breadsall Priory, we enjoyed your singing so much. It all went exactly as I wanted - you should have seen their faces when you came into the room singing, some guests thought you were miming at first and several people came up tio me and said how good you were - hope they came up to tell you so too. The Groom's parents thought it was a Karaoke set-up on the stage - how wrong could they have been.

Anyway, I couldn't let my daughter's wedding pass by without saying how great you were and to thank you most sincerely for giving us such a good evening.

Many thanks.

"Alive Network were quick to respond to my query and provided a prompt service which was easy to respond and deal with.

Jim McAllister was an excellent singer. He read the mood of the audience and adapted the songs he sang accordingly. We were a very small party (24) but this didn’t affect his performance and many of the guests commented on what a great singer he was.
