" Thank you Ernie for a brilliant night! :) I had been looking forward with excitement to my birthday since planning it almost a year ago & Ernie certainly made it very special. Ernie gave a stunning performance & was dressed well to match. He set & held the stage perfectly. Arriving in plenty of time to get everything set up, Ernie opened the evening with some wonderful Dean Martin & Nat King Cole (my request), allowing everyone to mingle & enjoy the atmosphere. After the buffet, Ernie returned to give us some fantastic Sinatra, giving us all a chance to dance & get into the party mood. He then carried on to WOW everyone with some party songs & kept us dancing with the disco set straight afterwards. None-stop enjoyment and entertainment! I can say in all honesty that If you're looking to hire a singer then browse around.

" My mum booked Ernie for a very special birthday party and he didn't disappoint. Music was perfect for the party and sung brilliantly, swing with a few modern numbers for good measure.

(Formal Dinner Event (Huntsman Inn, Holmfirth) "

Tony Goldstein - 23rd Jul, 2016

" After Ernie's performance at our last Anniversary, there was no doubt he'd be back again this year. All our guests loved him last time and this year was even better! It's clear he takes this very seriously and it shows in his performance and his demeanour on and off stage. He is thoroughly polite, always very smart and an absolute pleasure to listen to. This time around we were treated to some wonderful Dean Martin numbers and, I must say, they are equally as impressive as his Sinatra (which is why we booked him again). We will definitely be seeing Ernie again soon and are awaiting our next treat! "

Catherine Briggs - 16th Jul, 2016

" A superb performance from someone who from initial enquiry, to set up, to sing, to clear away was nothing short of sensational. Having attended three other similar functions this year "Ernie" is frankly in a league of his own. If its high class Sinatra, Darin, S Davies jnr etc.. that you want mingled in with some more upbeat dancing music then Ernie is your man. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone for a dinner dance type event.

(Masonic Ladies Evening) "

Richard Thewlis - 9th Jul, 2016

" What a thrill it was to be part of the ‘Refreshingly Authentic’ experience of a live performance that captured the sound and mannerisms of two of the most entertaining musical legends the world has ever seen (or heard)! Ernie Alan brought to life the music and atmosphere of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin perfectly, in his accurate portrayal of each unique character. What a fabulous way to personally experience what our guests and ourselves all agreed to be the closest thing we’ve heard to the ‘Rat Pack’. Choosing Ernie, we were confident of a great evening and he did not disappoint. We were delighted with some lovely ‘cool’ numbers from Dean Martin and then surprised by a couple of Sammy Davis hits too! Then came the Sinatra that lit the evening, ending with a perfect ‘New York, New York’ A definitive 100% recommendation from us and we’re already looking forward to our next encounter! "

Mike Ferris - 18th Jun, 2016

" Fantastic night of entertainment from Ernie Alan, thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. Great performance, very enjoyable throughout.

Golden Anniversary "

Alan West - 11th Jun, 2016

" I had no hesitation in booking Ernie after reading the reviews, watching the videos and listening to him sing. Ernie created a lovely relaxed atmosphere where we could all enjoy ourselves whilst listening to his wonderful voice. He sang a lovely first set which was perfect while we had our meal and then he returned to finish the evening with some great songs that has us all singing, dancing and having a lovely time. He was, of course, encored and surprised us all with some superb party numbers that even the youngsters enjoyed! Having experienced Ernie first hand, I can wholeheartedly recommend him to everyone, no matter what your musical tastes, as that voice is just a pleasure to listen to. Ernie, thank you with all my heart for making my birthday such a special and memorable one xx "

Sharon Wright - 3rd Jun, 2016

Julie summerfield - 28th May, 2016

" Ernie did an excellent job and everyone that attended the party made a comment how much they enjoyed the singer. Ernie turned up to the party well in advance , set up and rehearsed his songs which was very professional. He was very approachable and also did requests when asked, even putting on music during the break that my father had brought on a memory stick! I would not hesitate to book Ernie again and hope it will be sooner than later.

Birthday Party "

R.Wayman - 14th May, 2016

" Ernie kindly agreed to entertain our veteran audience at a steak night last night and he was nothing short of brilliant. He pitched the evening perfectly with songs appropriate to accommodate people eating then more upbeat afterwards when the evening was in full swing. Everyone that attended thoroughly enjoyed the evening, his performance, the quality of his singing voice and his ability to choose and deliver songs appropriate to the mood and setting. I can't say enough about how good he was and I would highly recommend him to anyone considering booking his talent for their function. Thank you Ernie, you did us proud.

Mac McKenney - 30th Apr, 2016

" Completely amazed by Ernie and his performance! How he can switch between the voices and styles of Frank & Dean from one song to the next? Incredible!

Highly recommended from the Butler's and all our friends! Thank You !!

Ernie has played for our family and friends too after them seeing him at our Anniversary last year and we couldn't imagine a party without him anymore. Everybody likes to listen to a great voice, but few people get the chance to hire one ;) Be one of them. You will not be disappointed with 'Our Ernie'. "

Carole Simmons - 12th Mar, 2016

" All the classics perfectly delivered (Everybody loves somebody sometimes - outstanding). For Sinatra & Martin, Ernie is your man. The style, the mannerisms and, most importantly, the sound! My brother and I spent 2 days looking for the right singer for mum and dads anniversary and we both said yes the first time we heard Ernie, so I rang and had booked him within 5 minutes! Ernie really made the evening and was so polite and easy to get on with. He made everyone feel comfortable and created a lovely relaxed atmosphere that we could all enjoy throughout the night.

" Ernie Alan OBE - One Brilliant Entertainer! Ernie wowed everyone at my Birthday on Saturday. I'd seen someone mention his 'drunk' act so I asked him if he could do it for me to surprise all my guests and it was hilarious! He has a bottle of Jack Daniels in his hand and made a few jokes, it was just like watching the Rat Pack lol. Then of course, he started to sing :) What a voice and what a noise we all made! Literally everyone applauding and 'wowing' at that voice :) You will NOT be disappointed with Ernie Alan OBE x "

Brenda Oldershaw - 13th Feb, 2016

I'd recommend Ernie for any kind of event, whether it's a chilled sit down meal or the kind party where everyone dances :) "

Catherine Mullins - 28th Dec, 2015

" Ernie, thank you so much for a great birthday party and for all your help and advice with the planning, I could not have done it without you and it certainly would not have been half as much fun either. Thank you for all the great songs you sang and for presenting my mum and dad with their flowers for me. We all had such an amazing night and cannot wait to see you again for mum and dads anniversary! Best wishes, Lesley Gill. xx "

Lesley Gill - 12th Dec, 2015

" Superb entertainment, absolute class! Would not hesitate to book again or recommend. Totally made our anniversary and had an entire room full of Sinatra fans thoroughly delighted. Definitely refreshing, definitely authentic! Thank you Ernie! "

Brian & Susan Allen - 27th Nov, 2015

Karina Silvers - 15th Nov, 2015

" Wow!! We had a wonderful night celebrating my dad's 80th birthday which was made more special by asking Ernie to sing. The range of songs were too many to mention and Ernie accommodated our requests every step of the way. Ernie kept in contact with us regularly leading up to the event and arrived at the venue exactly at the time he had stated. He has a fantastic voice and every song that we asked for was performed! He really engaged the audience all night and nothing was too much trouble. Overall the night was a huge success which would not have been so enjoyable if Ernie had not been with us. Thanks Ernie - looking forward to the next time! Sue & family xxxxx "

Sue Joyce - 17th Oct, 2015

" I booked Ernie for our bowls presentation night he was really good and would recommend, all the guests really enjoyed the evening thanks to Ernie. would definitely book him again thank you Ernie! "

Jenny - 9th Oct, 2015

" Ernie was an amazing performer and was the perfect choice for 50th wedding anniversary celebrations this weekend. Great repertoire and a singing voice to die for! I would highly recommend him for any event large or small. "

Gail Brogan - 26th Sep, 2015

" I booked Ernie for my 40th Birthday party on Saturday and I'm so pleased I did. I chose a 'Gangsters & Molls' theme for my party and thought Ernie's music would really go with my idea. Ernie really looked the part in a black suit with white shirt and red braces - he looked like Al Capone! The costumes and the music went really well together and the whole place looked and sounded like a film set! Ernie did a fantastic job in choosing the songs and kept the dance floor full after the buffet, with everyone having a fun night. Very highly recommended and I will definitely be booking Frankie Capone, sorry – Ernie Alan, again in the future. Thank you :) "

Tia Sanders - 19th Sep, 2015

" We booked Ernie for our Mothers 102nd Birthday Party. He was very friendly and professional, he played all age appropriate music (which we loved) at a perfect volume. We would not hesitate to recommend Ernie for any event, a truly talented and all round nice man. Thanks a million!! "

Ellen Shevlin - 13th Sep, 2015

" So pleased I found Ernie - super friendly and fun guy with a fantastic voice and style. He kept the classics classic and made the big ones bigger with his quirky phrasing and ad-lib moments. Kept everyone's ears on the cusp, just waiting for the next 'Ernism'. Thoroughly recommended! xxx "

Erin Cole - 11th Sep, 2015

" Absolutely delighted with my booking! Cannot thank Ernie enough for an amazing night of class and entertainment. Looks the part, acts the part, sounds the part - the Real Deal! As a family of big Sinatra and Jazz/Pop fans, we all agree Ernie is one of the best we've seen and heard. His voice is really suited to it and has that undertone to make it very enjoyable indeed. His Dean Martin songs are up there too (Everybody Loves Somebody - fantastic)! Favourites of the evening were Come Fly With Me, Lady is a Tramp, Leroy Brown and That's Life! (They've always been my favourites as my dad will tell you). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend and book again. Don't hesitate to book! Frankie xx "

Francesca Spencer - 6th Sep, 2015

" Ernie entertained us yesterday at our presentation evening and gave us a wonderful evening of refined pleasure, in equally wonderful surroundings. A lovely relaxed meal time presentation of subtle Sinatra classics, with a hint of Matt Monro to start with. Waiting until everyone had finished and their lunches settled, Ernie then turned up the heat to reward us all with some fantastic dance numbers. The drinks flowed, the people danced (old & young) and that wonderful voice just kept going. A great time was had by all. Thank you Ernie Alan x "

Natasha Reid (Banqueting House) - 5th Sep, 2015

" Speechless. Literally. Shocked us all when he started to sing, amazed us by what he sang and then entertained us through the night. Superb rendition of Sinatra classics and finished the night with a good old knees up with some pop songs. Perfect night, highly recommended for anyone who enjoys a great voice. Top man. "

Jamie Rees - 4th Sep, 2015

" My dad has been a lifelong huge Sinatra fan, so Ernie was a must for his birthday. Arriving early and politely introducing himself to my father, Ernie proceeded to quietly prepare everything for the evening. Ernie then got changed into a smart and sympathetically synonymous outfit which complemented the style of music and atmosphere perfectly. The voice, the mannerisms and deliverance were superb and absolutely perfect (he says he doesn't try and impersonate Sinatra but I think he's more like him than he realises). My father was absolutely delighted and also quite moved by Ernie's performance and to quote my dad it was 'the best birthday he'd ever had in his life' which also made me quite emotional too (sorry Ernie). Not one single guest left without shaking his hand and thanking him for a wonderful night. I cannot praise or recommend Ernie enough and if you're looking for a Sinatra style singer for your party - then look no further xxxx "

Anna Mangan - 30th Aug, 2015

" FANTASTIC!! -Great voice - made my dad's party - coped so well with having to be moved about due to bad weather , created a great party atmosphere everyone enjoyed. Would recommend to anyone. "

Julie Power - 29th Aug, 2015

" Simply outstanding performance. You don't need a band with a voice like that and Ernie, undeniably, has the voice. The only guy I've seen who had people applauding before he'd even finished the song. You just know it's going to be one great song after another. The Voice, The Charm, The Class. This guy is Number One. "

Dominic Silverman - 28th Aug, 2015

" We first stumbled across the talented Ernie Alan last November and it was an absolute pleasure to invite him back to sing at a special birthday / anniversary party this weekend. He's a true professional with a wonderful voice that appeals to young and old. My 2 1/2 year old niece loved Ernie and keeps asking where 'the singing man' has gone. Looking forward to finding another reason to hire him again :) Thanks Big Ern x "

Kelly Beighton - 23rd Aug, 2015

" Ernie entertained our guests on Friday for our 40th wedding anniversary and was fantastic. Very smartly dressed, he was extremely polite and accommodating throughout. I told him what I wanted on his arrival (nice and early too) and left him to it. Ernie transformed that room into a glowing display of light and sound, with a perfect choice of background music. After our guests had arrived and chatted for a while, Ernie hit them with the first set... Absolutely phenomenal voice that stopped everyone in their tracks. His rendition of our requested 'Portrait of my Love' had everyone on their feet clapping and cheering as he hit and held that note perfectly (quite an emotional moment). After our meal, Ernie served us some gentle classics, building them to a big swinging finale. As he ended the set with the ever popular 'New York', he left the stage to cheers and chants of 'We Want More, We Want More', turning around to give the crowd a cheeky wink and a smile as he left the room. As the party music played, the disco lights flashed and we all danced, Ernie promptly returned after a quick change to drive everyone hysterical with some belting party numbers. Absolutely incredible singer and entertainer with an unbelievably versatile and powerful voice that truly shocked some people. You simply have to see this man to believe it. I'm still shaking my head in disbelief! Superb night Erine, thank you. Tom and Amy Underwood. "

Tom and Amy Underwood - 21st Aug, 2015

" First Class entertainer, smartly dressed, extremely polite and a great voice. Perfect for a lovely, refined evening of entertainment with style. Ernie wowed my guests with his smart appearance and his lovely voice and I could not now imagine my night without him. The casual way in which he sang relaxed everyone and then he built up the pace nicely for a big crescendo finish that made a perfect night. I definitely want Ernie again at my next birthday :) "

Alison Francis - 15th Aug, 2015

" Ernie is the 'Muhammad Ali' of Swing Singers. The untouchable King of the Swing Ring with a knockout performance! He did a superb job for our anniversary, with every one of our guests having a very enjoyable and memorable evening. No hesitation in recommending at all. "

Ian Congleton - 14th Aug, 2015

" Ernie sang at my 40th Birthday party on Saturday and exceeded our expectations in many ways. All of our guests were surprised (I think some were shocked!) and delighted by his performance, his songs and, of course, his voice. He was dressed really smartly and gave a refreshingly authentic rendition of some great songs. Then, our buffet was late being served so Ernie carried on for another 15 minutes or so until the food was ready. He didn't make a fuss about it, he just subtly added a few songs whilst he was still singing and covered it perfectly. He then ended up staying even longer when my guests kept shouting for more. I'm sorry Ernie lol. I can't thank him enough for a fantastic night of fun and first class entertainment. I can recommend Ernie for all your party needs. Thank you Ernie x "

Julie Harper - 8th Aug, 2015

" My wife and I host various parties at our house throughout the year, hiring various acts and entertainers depending on the events theme and requirements. The Rat Pack era and swing genre are a favourite of mine and throughout the years, I have hired dozens of bands and singers. Many of those made claims of being 'The Best Sinatra in the Business, with one even being 'The Voice of Sinatra'. The guy I hired today made none of these claims. He says that he doesn't try and impersonate anyone and just does what he does and boy does he! He trounced absolutely everyone I had heard before. There's a tone in his voice that is an absolute gem to listen to and one that is as unique as Sinatra's himself. That man is Ernie Alan. The guy has no fear either! I'd said to him before he went on that it's OK to be nervous (as he was centre stage at the dinner party) and he just smiled and laughed! I didn't take it as arrogance, or ignorance. I took that as confidence in himself and his ability to perform. Ernie Alan will not disappoint you in any way. He has, by far, the best voice I have hired and heard so far and is unshakable both on stage and off. Needless to say, Ernie will be gracing our guests with his presence again very soon. "

Jeffery Willoughby - 7th Aug, 2015

" We have hired Ernie to sing out our home on two occasions.He was an absolute hit and I would recommend him if you are considering hiring a singer for a special event.Ernie was very professional and worked with us to ensure that the entertainment needs of our guests were fully met. When choosing Ernie i relied on the internet reviews, I was so pleased with my choice ,his voice sounded even better in person.We have already hired Ernie for our next party in August . If you are considering hiring a rat pack singer ,who has a great voice (his New York,New York has everyone up dancing ) I would highly recommend him you will not be disappointed. "

Mrs Raechel Parker from Chesterfield - 1st Aug, 2015

" Well, what can I say! Ernie sang at my 60th Birthday and what an entertainer. Fantastic voice, immaculately dressed, very smart. He couldn't do enough to make my day special. Ernie sang the songs I had previously requested which brought back a lot of fond memories. Ernie was very polite and arrived early to make sure everything went smoothly. I would not hesitate to invite Ernie back again. A truly memorable day. Thank you Ernie see you soon "

Tina Spencer - 25th Jul, 2015

" What can I say except simply fantastic all round. A pleasure to hire such a pleasant young man and a great pleasure to listen to. Every song, from the slow smoochy ones to the more dancy ones, was perfect. The party mix was also a big hit. Very smart and very approachable. I wouldn't hesitate to book Ernie again for my next party. He comes highly recommended from my family, friends and myself. "

Angela Davis - 24th Jul, 2015

" It was with great pleasure that I found myself listening to the "Rich Tones" of Ernie at my brothers 40th Wedding Anniversary on Saturday and I feel compelled to report back on my experience. To say he has the best voice I have heard would be a bold (under)statement. I Have, in my (many) years, heard a multitude of styles from countless bands and singers from the length and breadth of the country and beyond, so I can say with educated experience that I regard Ernie Allan as one of the best around that you will hear today. His Diction is clear and precise, his Timing perfect, his Tone faultless and his character is remarkable . Ernie's interpretation and deliverance is uncannily similar and sympathetic to those he aims to recreate. There are so many (as Jeffery Willoughby rightly said) who claim to be the best in the business or the UK's Number 1, who clearly haven't taken the time to listen to anyone but themselves. Ernie hasn't made these claims. He doesn't need to. The audience and people are the only ones who can rightly make those claims and it seems that those who have been privileged to hear Ernie agree that he is unrivalled in his genre. It's only by meeting and experiencing this extraordinary gentleman that you will appreciate the true beauty of what he has to offer. Gordon Mico (24th July 2015) "

Gordon Mico - 18th Jul, 2015

" Ernie, Thank you for a fantastic night on Friday. Excellent choice of songs throughout the night and the change in pace, presentation and delivery was spot on. Without doubt, the best do we've had and I'm hoping you're available for our next one (I'll let you know the date as soon as we confirm it). Look forward to seeing you again. Very highly recommended. "

Dan Steele - 17th Jul, 2015

" What a fantastic evening with 'Swing' singer 'Ernie Alan'. What a great entertainer! He was amazing from start to finish, I would highly recommend Ernie for any event/occasion. He was extremely professional, he arrived early to set up and stayed until everyone had left. From young to old he managed to keep everyone dancing, which knowing my family is hard task to do. Thank you Ernie I am sure we will see you again. Cheers Neil Clayton "

Neil Clayton - 11th Jul, 2015

" Ernie recently performed at my husbands 60th birthday party, and without exception blew everyone away. A truly talented performer with and incredible voice and stage presence. He is a charming man who keeps you informed right up to his arrival at the venue. A true professional in every way. Thank you Ernie. "

Carol Richmond-Neal - 10th Jul, 2015

" Absolutely incredible voice and an amazing performer. Especially liked the rendition of Mack the Knife and That's Life. One of those voices that you could listen to forever. Fantastic mix of songs from slow love songs to the upbeat dance and then a few others like Sweet Caroline and even a rock song that someone asked for. You will not be disappointed with this guy and I will definitely be going again. "

Paige Miller - 3rd Jul, 2015

" Fantastic performance from start to finish and did not miss a single beat. Amazing voice :) Thank you for a great night! "

Jess Tomlin - 26th Jun, 2015

" A very good night had by all, thank you Erns. Very good selection of songs and accommodated all of our requests. Top quality performer and excellent value for money. "

Steven Simms - 20th Jun, 2015

" We booked ernie for our 10th anniversary he was fantastic and very professional we would definitely book him again x "

Kelly malek - 13th Jun, 2015

" A singer who sings! Well worth it. Didn't pad out the night with jokes or talking. Nice easy first bit while we had our buffet then finished the night with some good old swing classics. Very nice set up and a very pleasant young man. Recommended. "

Eric Pearson - 7th Jun, 2015

" Ernie sang at our ladies day festival on the 10th May 2015 and didn't disappoint! Every step through booking, me making changes ( twice.....), Ernie checking final details, then from his arrival, performing and packing away was very professionally managed. On the day he was very approachable, easy to get on with and came across a really genuine performer, I definitely don't have any qualms in highly recommend him. This guy can really swing!!!! Thanks Ernie every one had a fantastic time. Mick Crossley WM "

Mick Crossley (Forget Me Not Lodge No.9419) - 10th May, 2015

" Ernie sang at our wedding and he was phenomenal, he entertained the guests superbly. Highly recommend and absolutely perfect for weddings or similar. Thanks again Ernie. "

Steven millington - 3rd May, 2015

" I hired Ernie for my house warming party on Saturday to entertain my guests in the evening. I picked a few of the songs and left the rest for Ernie to decide. He did not disappoint in any way and surpassed all my expectations. We were all well entertained and very impressed with his voice and songs, requesting many encores. Highly rated and recommended. "

Matteo Lattuca - 25th Apr, 2015

" Hi Ernie, Sorry for the late review (Honeymoon)! Ernie was perfect for my wedding and I am so glad we chose him as I could not imagine my day without him now. After we read ALL the reviews and listened to all the songs, a quick phonecall to speak to Ernie had us 100% satisfied that we had found our singer. Ernie did not disappoint at all and wowed our guests and ourselves on the night, singing our songs perfectly. What I also liked was that Ernie didn't fill the time with jokes or stories and he didn't pick on anyone or make them feel uncomfortable in any way, he just sang perfectly. He was very polite and approachable and even danced amongst us whilst singing! Everyone had a great time and I'm certain we'll be seeing Ernie again sometime. He comes very highly recommended from me and my husband x "

Christi Klarke - 21st Mar, 2015

" Thank you Ernie for a brilliant night on Saturday. It has been a pleasure to meet you and an honour to hear you sing for us. You were very rightly recommended to us by our friends and you are now also highly recommended by my husband and I. All our guests were extremely impressed by you and not a single one of them left without complimenting you and thanking me for a superb night. I have given you a 'Like' and shared your facebook page also. Thank you so much and I look forward to hearing your wonderful voice again soon x Lainey Hughes x "

Lainey Hughes - 14th Mar, 2015

" I organised a surprise 50th wedding anniversary for my wife and invited our family and close friends. I booked Ernie without hesitation after speaking with him a few weeks before and now could not imagine the night without him there. I had asked for him to 'blend in' because I didn't want anyone to know I had booked a singer, as that was another surprise for everyone. I asked Ernie if he could act as a 'Polite Drunk' from another party (he couldn't pass as family or friends as we are all very close). It was absolutely hilarious and everyone (including myself at one point) all honestly believed that he had just wandered in after a whiskey or two. He then proceeded to wobble to the microphone and made a comical slurry speech, thanking everybody for allowing him to stay and congratulating my wife and I on our Anniversary. He said as a thank you, he would sing us a song (at which point everybody laughed). The music started and the laughing stopped and turned to raucous applause (and even tears from my wife). Of course, he 'sobered up' immediately and gave us a night that we will never forget from a first class performance (both acting and singing) and a first class gent. Very highly recommended 10/10. "

M Hollandsworth - 28th Feb, 2015

" Ernie sang for us at our 40th Wedding Anniversary party at the Metropole Hotel and was everything we wanted and more. From arriving and introducing himself to us, through his performances and to him leaving at the end of the night, Ernie was a gent and entertainment professional. Impeccable timing and with a voice perfect for his chosen genre. My wife, myself and our guests could not have had a more perfect night and we would all recommend Ernie for your party, without hesitating. "

Alistair Larking-Gowan - 21st Feb, 2015

" Excellent night Ernie, well done. "

Andrew Morgan - 15th Feb, 2015

" Another amazing night, thank you Ernie. The song choice was spot on and loving the new ones! (actually made me shiver lol). Perfect gentleman, great sport and an incredible singer. Can't wait for the next one :o "

Nikki - 13th Feb, 2015

" I booked Ernie to sing at my partner Louise's surprise 50th birthday party was very pleased with the whole experience. Ernie's performance was top notch and he not only looked the part but also sounded it too. He certainly caught the mood of the evening and added so much to the occasion. Louise was thrilled to have him there. I can honestly say that the process of booking Ernie, selecting the song list and planning the timings was very smooth and without any stress whatsoever. I would certainly book Ernie again in the future. "

Steve Bradley - 7th Feb, 2015

" Absolutely fantastic! Booked Ernie for my mums birthday on Saturday and am so glad I chose him. So helpful and made everything so easy. Picked some great songs and did some that we wanted on the night. Even my mum and dad had a dance. Haven't had a night like that in years! Thank you and absolutely recommended! "

Gemma Day - 24th Jan, 2015

" We booked Ernie to sing at our engagement party on Saturday and were completely blown away by his voice. Everyone sat in silence at his rendition of 'All the way' then erupted in applause and cheering as he hit that note and held it perfectly. He just captivated the whole room . After making our night such a special one, we are hoping to see Ernie again at our wedding (hopefully in 2017). Recommended ;) "

Sarah & Michael - 17th Jan, 2015

" To put it simply, Ernie is outstanding in every field and I can truly say that I have never, in all my years, met anyone like him. For starters, his nature and character are that of a gentleman. He has the stature and presence of a Godfather, the patience of a saint, and the voice of a real professional. Quite a lot of people have mentioned the tone in his voice and it really is unique and a gem of a sound. Nothing was too much trouble for him both before and on the night and he even directed our guests from the entrance to the room and helped the elderly relatives along the stairs. I am so pleased and thankful that we found Ernie as the evening just would not have been the same. Ernie is very much a pleasure to listen to and an honour to know. Thank you Big Ern. "

Dennis Johnson - 10th Jan, 2015

" Thank You 'Big Ern' for a really great night at our Anniversary. My husband and I are grateful for everything that you did for us and I am so pleased we chose you. Lot's of photo's and videos to remember the night with. You really made our 50th a special one. Hope you got home safe and thanks again for all your help. Suzanne and Derek xx "

Suzanne Pridmore - 3rd Jan, 2015

" Ernie Saw our new year in with style! He sang for over 2 hours overall and kept everybody entertained from 7pm right through to 1am with a good mix of songs and party music. I invited a mixed bag of characters and age groups and Ernie played and sang for them all. Unfortunately, Ernie Alan will not be available for New Years Eve 2015... Because I've already booked him! A True gentleman and an amazing singer. "

Faye Drury-Smith - 31st Dec, 2014

" We hired Ernie to sing at our Christmas house party and he was absolutely fantastic! He sang a perfect set of songs that catered for everybody from 18 to 85. Very easy to work with and very committed to his profession. Ernie will definitely be back for our next party. "

Deb Swift - 27th Dec, 2014

" So Glad I chose Ernie for my singer. I had looked at a few others but chose Ernie based on what others had said. He really is so polite and helpful and is so easy to work with. His voice honestly is unbelievable, he sings all the songs just as they were originally. He sounds just like the old singers and is very clear and very nice to listen to. I've never heard anyone like him and for less than £500 is even rarer. I would love to have Ernie again. "

Corrine Smythe - 19th Dec, 2014

" Ernie was brilliant!!! We had an in store event which took place on a Friday day / evening and he entertained approx 50 people, the performance he gave bought the venue to life and kept everyone happy , it created a lovely atmosphere and our customers loved it. I can thoroughly recommend Ernie and we will definitely be using him again in the future events. "

caroline thorley - 12th Dec, 2014

" We invited Ernie to sing at a black tie dinner for out '14 Christmas Party and he really made the evening special! Leading up to the event Ernie kept in contact as required, as was able to be totally flexible with the timings of his sets. Ernie picked tracks that were appropriate to the time of the evening (dinner and after dinner) and even supported us with an extra set at the end of the evening. I couldn't recommend more highly and you won't be disappointed if you book him. "

Tom Walker - 11th Dec, 2014

" Purely and simply outstanding. Every song was sung pitch perfect and enunciated perfectly too. A good mixture of well known favorites, some nice slow dancing and some good old swing to finish, with everyone up dancing and begging for more... which Ernie delivered and then some. So polite and accommodating. You will not be disappointed! "

Sylvia - 29th Nov, 2014

" Just before Christmas Ernie entertained us all at my mum's 80th Birthday Party and what a fantastic afternoon it was. Ernie is a true gentleman and a superb singer, nothing was too much trouble for him and he entertained all ages. I was sceptical about hiring him as he wasn't recommended to me but I would have no hesitation in using him again and recommending him as we all thoroughly enjoyed the party and he made my mum's day! Thank you Ernie you were great! (I have only delayed posting this review due to a family illness but now things have settled I wanted to express my thanks.). "

Sonia Crook-Lake - 16th Nov, 2014

" WOW! I am a huge fan of Ratpack and Swing and I have NEVER heard anyone like Ernie before. His voice and tone are incredible and just perfect for this genre. A superb rendition of each song, true to the original style. I have no doubt that, had Ernie been born on the 12/12/15, we would all be hiring tributes to Ernie Alan. So pleased to have booked and met him. 10/10 "

Annita Reddish - 15th Nov, 2014

" Ernie (or Big Ern as he's now known amongst my family and friends) performed for my 30th Birthday. What a talent!! I loved every moment and so did my guests. A complete professional from start to finish and what a voice! A fabulous compliment to a wonderful evening. I strongly recommend. Thank you so much Big Ern x "

Kelly Beighton - 8th Nov, 2014

" Thanks Ernie for a great evening of entertainment at my 50th Birthday Party! (Fri Nov 7th 2014) All my guests have commented on how great you were and what a friendly person you are. Booking you and choosing songs via your website was so easy and we would recommend you to family and friends in the future. On behalf of my husband and I we wish you every success in the future!! "

Janet Hone - 7th Nov, 2014

" I had been searching for an entertainer for several weeks and came across Ernie. I had appointed Ernie on the merit of his vocal ability. when I listened to his repetior on his website and just loved his vocal ability then followed the reviews. I was not disappointed. Ernie had created a fantastic atmosphere at our family gathering and consequently made the event extra special. As a result, I have been raving about his performance to all my friends/colleagues at work who will consider Ernie for their forthcoming family events. I have been singing along at work everyday since our party... Ernie is a diamond in his own right. "

Anna Sagan - 24th Aug, 2014

" Had a superb evening for my mums birthday thanks to Ernie Alan. Not one problem and no hesitation in recommended Ernie to anyone wanting a nice swing singer.

Sienna Milton - 17th Aug, 2014

Alex Haycock - 3rd Apr, 2014

" We booked Ernie to sing at our party for my dad's birthday yesterday. He sang for two half hours and kept us dancing and singing all night. If I'm honest, for what he charged I wasn't expecting much but we were on a bit of a limited budget. How wrong I was! He was simply fantastic! I cannot recommend Ernie enough. You have to hear it to believe it! Definitely book again. "

Julie Hart - 23rd Mar, 2014

" Ernie very kndly offered his time and talent to entertain at a residential home to help promote National Nutrition and hydration week. He gave a full programme that was enjoyed by the residents, staff and volunteers alike. Thank you Ernie you are very personable and a good entertainer, all communication with you has meant the event was well orgranised and seamless. I think the residential home will be re booking you and I have another interested so will pass details on. "

Jane Coleman (County Enterprisde Foods) - 19th Mar, 2014

" Ernie sang for us at a surprise birthday party for my husband and we had a fabulous night - even though his wonderful singing voice was almost drowned out by our relatives!If you're looking for top class entertainment look no further! I can highly recommend him - great voice and a genuinely nice guy. "

Val Jessop - 15th Mar, 2014

" You sang at my mum and dads wedding anniversary on Saturday in Lincoln. You were absolutely fabulous. Everyone was talking about you afterwards and i only wish we had booked you for longer. Incredible smooth voice and I would like to hear you again definitely :) "

Jean & Dave Wedding Anniversary - 16th Dec, 2013

" Ernie was a great singer and well received by the entire family. His standard of singing was better than expected and my brother booked him there and then for his engagement party.
