Kurtis Ray White had grown up with live music, it’s in his blood! He’s been working in the entertainments industry since he was 14 years old and seeing him perform is all the proof you need of his background! His act is incredible.
His energy and talent is undeniable, he puts his all into his act, he’s exceptionally watchable. Not only is Kurtis a fantastic performer and vocalist, he’s a really nice guy too, he’s full of charm and his personality stands out a mile. He’s very popular at corporate events, weddings and private parties, in short, he’s an amazing entertainer.
Kurtis is related to, and learned alongside, the masters of 80’s and 90’s cabaret The Marks Brothers, he performed with them for many years until starting out on his own. Since then his solo act has gone from strength to strength, he wows his audiences paying tribute to the talents of Ray Charles and John Legend and also to the Sound Of Soul, Motown and R&B, performing tracks from Otis Redding, Stevie Wonder, Plan B and Bruno Mars.
Kurtis is no stranger to performing in front of larger live or TV audiences, in 2011 he made it as far as boot camp on the X Factor and got all the way through to the final with his John Legend act on Stars In Their Eyes. We are proud to be able to offer such a talented performer to our clients. Based in the West Midlands Kurtis has travelled all over the world with his work, and is currently bowling over audiences on cruise ships and the Sensatori chain of hotels.

“Kurtis was excellent! Not only was he a good showman but a very nice guy too and made his performance very personal for my new wife and I. I would highly recommend him for any event! Thank you Bigfoot.”

“Kurtis Ray White performs a genre tribute to all things soul and this is surely one of the stand-out performers in his field. A belting selection of Soul classics were performed and sung seamlessly and in segue style.”

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.

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.
