Old Hat Duo are from Essex. They perform ‘Sinatra’ and ‘Rat Pack’ style numbers. Their act is packed with energy and fun, and they know exactly how to work their audience into laughter and dancing.

Hire Old Hat Duo for wedding and Birthday entertainment

I first saw Singers, Old Hat Duo Will & Mike perform ‘Rat Pack’ style music at Marcos Bar, Rayleigh. From start to finish, their magical renditions of Sinatra, Dean Martin, & swing classics from that era captivated all present. They pack so much fun into their performance you won’t take your eyes off them! One of the best tribute acts from Southend, Essex I’ve seen and heard.

Old Hat Duo performance spans generations-meaning that they are, in my view, first rate wedding entertainment for all ages. They have clearly worked together for many years-their split-second timing combining dance moves & gags always go down so well.
Singers Old Hat duo can accomodate any venue, any age group, & literally ‘paint smiles’ across faces for the entire duration of their act.

Manuela Panizzo – Top singer ideal for Weddings and Birthdays!

Geoff-Grove-BlogI’m writing this article about Manuela Panizzo after seeing her perform in Southend this weekend, and I wanted to give her some extra publicity on my website. It was my pleasure to perform along side her, and here’s my account of a fantastic evening’s entertainment.



Manuela-Panizzo-SingerI was fortunate enough to DJ at a birthday party this weekend – a joint 18th and 40th. I had been booked to DJ, and they had also organised a live singer called Manuela Panizzo, who they first saw performing at The Royal Hotel, Southend.
Manuela brought her own mixer and backing tracks, and plugged into my PA System. We worked very well together, and as a team we really went down well. Manuela was extremely versatile, starting off on her first 45 minute set with covers from Randy Crawford amongst others. Her music selection for the beginning of the evening was just right. During the second set, Manuela Panizzo even covered Robin S – Show Me Love with accuracy and clarity. When she sings, she ‘gets right into it’, and clearly knows how to use a mic to full advantage, effortlessly making every track sound so soulful. The audience loved her, and between my own sets, I couldn’t stop dancing either!

Manuela told me she loves singing Soul, Jazz and Fusion numbers, also recently working with a Cuban band. Her voice is fantastic. In the first few seconds I knew this wasn’t a ‘run of the mill’ act. She actually writes songs and has appeared on a number of records.
I would have no trouble what so ever recommending Manuela Panizzo for any kind of party, any age group. She danced around while singing and had a great reaction from the audience. I really enjoyed working with her and look forward to the next event we can appear together.

Please search on You Tube for video footage of Manuela in action. Then you will realise why i had to ‘put pen to paper’!

If you would like to book Manuela Panizzo to sing at your function, please call 01702 200800 or 07802 195204
