The T-Tones are a sharp suited, collective group of young men specialising in classic vintage Doo-Wop who deliver fun, energetic but always professional performances, delivered with harmony and style.

Their consummate and innovative approach and original style has brought them to the attention of many big name corporate clients, including BBC Radio 2 who invited them to make a live appearance resulting in recording a personal jingle for Jeremy Vine.

The T-Tones also provide a service of arranging songs for special occasions, such as requests and first dances for weddings or jingles and ice-breakers for corporate events and trade shows.

They cover classic songs from the genre including ‘Earth Angel’, ‘Blue Moon’ and ‘Goodnight Sweetheart’ but also treat modern and contemporary songs to Doo-Wop rearrangements, such as ‘All the Single Ladies’ (Beyonce), ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ (One Direction), ‘Pencil Full of Lead’ (Paolo Nutini) as well as others.

They are based in Norwich and London and will travel “absolutely anywhere”, having performed in every County, most cities and many corners of the UK.

The group:

STEPHEN AMER sings with the busy and well-respected function band; ‘Apollo’ in and around East Anglia and elsewhere. He is vocalist and songwriter with the nu-Jazz/modern Soul acoustic trio ‘Trees Lounge Project’ and fronts his own lounge Jazz quartet based in Norwich. He is also the instigator and director of the Old Time Radio Club – a professional group specializing in live performances of vintage radio broadcasts. He has also professionally written scripts for variety and cabaret stage shows and is available to hire for big band and stage work.

BIM AINSLIE has an experienced background in Musical Theatre – with a B.A. (hons) degree in Performing Arts. He has a grade 8 distinction from the Royal Academy of Music in singing and has performed at such prestigious venues as Snape Maltings in Suffolk the London Palladium the Royal Albert Hall and at the Royal Festival Hall with the Academy of St Martins. He teaches musical theatre vocal tuition and stagecraft and runs a boys choir at a school in Norfolk. In 2010/2011 he will be touring British theatres in the tribute show ‘Tape That’.

RICHARD AINSLIE has sung as lead voice in many choirs including Cambridge where he studied Philosophy and Ancient languages. He has also had lead roles with the National Youth Music Theatre and has been resident lighting manager and stage manager with Sheffield University and Butlins holiday camps amongst others! He now leads a traditional church choir performing classical pieces writes composes and records incidental and background music for theatre productions in Suffolk and Norfolk and co runs ‘Dreamstone Productions’ - a company specialising in corporate murder mystery events ‘with a twist’.

PAUL AMER is lead singer with Adam Faith’s original band; ’the Roulettes’ and is kept busy with gigs up and down the country (even taking enquiries for Las Vegas!) He has performed professionally for several years with the nationally known and unique Edwardian Theatre Musical Hall at the Pavilion Theatre Gorleston and also for their professional pantomime and in 2011 will be touring theatres with a Vegas show based on the music of Frank Sinatra. By day he lives on and runs a boatyard in the heart of the Suffolk.

They hail from the port town of Lowestoft on the East Coast – birthplace to Benjamin Britten and indeed can boast a relation to the famous composer (cousin twice removed – and boy do they boast!)

They are now based near Norwich but spend time performing in and around London, Cambridge, Colchester, Norwich and elsewhere.

"The T-Tones are a friendly, professional and talented bunch of chaps. They were very flexible in fitting in with our plans (they were a pop up surprise during our wedding ceremony while we signed the register then they gave a performance outside during the drinks reception). More to the point they sang a diverse range of songs with verve, enthusiasm and talent - in short they were brilliant! My wife and I, as well as our guests, loved them and so many people couldn't speak highly enough of them. Alive Network were easy to deal with, efficient and entirely professional. I would be happy to recommend the T-Tones and the Alive Network to my family and friends."

"We booked the T-Tones to provide a ‘wow’ for a prestigious regional awards event and they did not disappoint.

They were incredibly helpful, flexible and suggested some great ideas. They took on board feedback and were prepared to work around our needs especially how and at what level to pitch the humour and the need for clear diction for foreign visitors.

We knew from demos that they could sing, but the cleverness and intricacy of their lyrics, performance and comedy timing were impressive. Their songs went down extremely well with an audience which consisted of 70% foreign visitors including very senior company management.

The T-Tones are talented and adaptable singers with a good ear for comedy who are very professional in their approach. No problems whatsoever and we’d recommend them to anyone."

"It was a pleasure dealing with both Alive Network and the T-Tones. Clare our Alive Network advisor was friendly, informative and above all patient. I had every confidence that my booking was in safe hands.

The T-Tones were a lovely bunch of guys who were great entertainers and had a great rapport with our customers. Both come with a high recommendation from us."

"The T-Tones were very friendly and professional. They were keen in making our event a success and everyone loved them. Their performance was really good and it gave our venue a really nice atmosphere. The songs they picked were just right and the singing was perfect.

I would definitely recommend them and would reuse them in the future should another event like this happen.

Clare from Alive network was really helpful and it made the whole organisation of this event really easy. 10/10… really happy."

"My husband and I booked the t-tones for our 4th child’s baptism. They were punctual and professional and had even arranged Annie’s song to greet our guests as they left the church. My husband and I last danced to that song 10 years ago at our wedding and we were delighted with the performance. Many of our guests commented on their vocal talents.

It was great to have arranged a booking through a professional agency to give piece of mind. Should we ever have need of singers again, we wouldn’t hesitate to re-book and would recommend the t-tones to anyone.

Many thanks,

Nicola Cohen."
