Jill Daniels, started her singing career in the late 1970’s, and even in those far off days her similarity to Vera Lynn was well recognised and earned her the title “The Sweetheart Of The Midlands”!
At that time Jill was selected to work in many of the top Cabaret Nightclub Restaurants such as the Talk Of The Midlands (Nottingham), Talk Of The North (Eccles), Heart Of The Midlands (Birmingham) Embassy Club (London) as support to numerous star acts and bands.
Although Jill was renowned for her excellent renditions of Vera Lynn favourites, she did not actually specialise until she was asked to put on a special Show for the VE DAY 50th Anniversary Celebrations and a whole new show was produced at considerable expense, the music being especially created from scratch for all of the Wartime Favourites in Jill’s singing key, which happens to be the same as Dame Vera’s, to recreate as near as possible the original versions.
The VE DAY Shows were a total success and bookings started flowing in for the Wartime Show which is known as “HITS OF THE BLITZ”.
The same success was repeated for the MILLENNIUM Celebrations and for The Queens Jubilee Celebrations and Jill Daniels is now known nationally and internationally as Britain’s No1 singer of WWII Songs and Patriotic Anthems.
The “HITS OF THE BLITZ” Show is now the mainstay of Jill’s schedule.
THIS SHOW IS A MUST BOOK FOR ALL PATRIOTIC OCCASIONS
& 1940s THEMED EVENINGS.
Give your audience the chance to come in fancy dress as a 5 star General or a trooper, Lili Marlene, a showgirl, an old time copper, or Dads Army character, or even Adolf Hitler, Monty, Sir Winston or a spiv. A great time will be had by all and that’s a promise.
In 2005 Jill Performed her Show for DAME VERA LYNN, along with guest speaker BILL PERTWEE (Air-raid warden from Dads Army).

Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!

I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.

We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
