Chris Kent is a singer and cabaret entertainer in the style of the classic age of swing music. His voice has been likened not only to the heroes of the swing era Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin but also to present day singing sensation Michael Buble.

Having deservedly gained attention throughout Greater London and South East England, Chris travels all around the UK and abroad sharing his unique talents with audiences of all ages.

Chris has worked at many venues both home and abroad including a tour playing his Rat Pack tribute act to sell out audiences on the Costa Del Sol. Chris also featured as a regular guest on David Prever’s afternoon show wowing LBC radio listeners with his impressive vocal range and charismatic style.

Chris now enjoys residencies at The Clarendon Hotel in Blackheath and Rendezvous Casino at Brighton Marina enjoy a spin of the wheel while listening to Chris's great sounds as well as being available to provide high class entertainment at all kinds of corporate and private parties fundraisers and other events.

Your event
Chris can learn requests and is especially keen to do this for your first dance at your wedding. Providing the artist deems the request possible this will be done for no extra charge whether you book the backing tracks or the full band. Please enquire when you speak to your agent.

He set the mood perfectly

booked Chris Kenten for their event in West Sussex November 2023

“Chris’s Rat Pack repertoire is extensive. He turned our friends and family gathering into the perfect occasion. Starting with low-key songs to give the perfect background atmosphere while we ate and the last set of upbeat favourites got us up and dancing. Thank you Chris for making it a totally memorable day.”

What a great personality!

Chris Kenten, Crooner, 90th birthday bash!

5 stars - Chris Kenten are Highly Recommended
booked Chris Kenten for their event in Kent

“Chris was absolutely fabulous! We were celebrating my dads 90th at my home which was rather crowded with Chris a few feet away from everyone , not really the stage you would expect for an entertainer but like a true professional he gave a wonderful performance with everyone joining in; we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would definitely engage his services again as would some of our friends who were present , and also that of Alive network where Adam made it all come together so smoothly. ”

You were absolutely brilliant! Everybody was saying how good you were. Thank you...
