About Paul Fredericks
Once a member of the well known Comedy Showband ‘The New Vaudeville Band’, Paul Fredericks continues to entertain audiences all over the world with his own brand of humour, astounding singing voice and amazing guitar talent.
Since leaving the The New Vaudeville Band, hit recording stars of such notable singles as “Winchester Cathedral”, “Peek-a-Boo” and “Finchley Central”, with whom he spent twelve years travelling the world, Paul’s solo career has gone from strength to strength.
Paul revels in his comedic ability to punctuate his incredible vocal performance with clean, anecdotal and observational humour, thus giving his audience breathing space to recover!
The most frequent question asked of Paul, following one of his performances, is: “…….wow! How do you reach those big notes?” which clearly shows the effect he has on his audience!
He truly has a unique vocal style with a range covering three and a half octaves, and he’s just as comfortable singing “up in the Gods” as “down in the basement”!
His versatility is also richly illustrated by his diverse choice of material, ranging from modern arrangements of fifties and sixties “gems” and the occasional West-End show tune, via a sprinkling of classical and on to the ever-popular swing and big-band. Comments such as: “……it was great to hear something different!” and “……wonderful to hear those marvellous songs again and performed so well!” are heard repeatedly as Paul leaves the stage.
With his astonishing vocals and fine musical ability, he falls perfectly into that sparsely populated category of artistes who can justifiably claim to be an amazing vocalist, a talented guitarist and funny as well!
His television and radio pedigree are impeccable and include numerous appearances throughout his career.
He has become a well-established and much sought-after entertainer delighting cruise ship and luxury hotel audiences, both in the UK and abroad, on behalf of such companies as: Celebrity Cruises, Cunard, Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean, Holland America, Seabourn, Radisson, Saga and Silversea. Hotel companies such as Hilton Worldwide, Ramada Inns and Marriott have all had the pleasure of engaging Paul for events and conventions.
To conclude, Paul Fredericks is a well-travelled and seasoned performer with a wealth of experience at his fingertips.
