Born in Sheffield, he joined ‘Sheffield’s Crucible’s’ professional youth theatre company when he was 14 years old. Paul attended weekly classes there until he auditioned and was accepted to work for a professional entertainment company based in Meadowhall shopping centre whilst still at school. This enabled Paul to sing/perform at various venues around the UK including the ‘Sheffield Arena’, now the ‘Hallam FM Arena’ whilst he still studied at school, he learned various other skills inc stilt walking, unicycling, balloon modelling…. during Paul’s time at the company.
After finishing school, and still in continuous singing lessons and working for the company at weekends, Paul attended a two year Performance BTEC course to further gain practical Performance Skills as well as a better theoretical knowledge. After successfully completing the course with Distinctions he worked full time performing with the company and worked alongside artists from around the world that specialised in different areas of performance from Gospel singers to acrobats!
Recently finishing his three year BA Performance Degree, he now lives in Manchester where he writes and performs his work at venues throughout, still only in his mid twenties, Paul hopes to eventually become a recognised figure within the industry. Yorkshire and the North West as well as unique cover shows. He hopes to promote his own voice/material and also his name with the aim to get recognition from an established record Label. Constantly asked for contact numbers and promotional CD’s after live shows, the response Paul receives towards his original material is extremely promising and rewarding. Now that Paul is happy with the development of his voice, talent and knowledge, he feels ready to promote them to the best of his ability.
As well as available for his own work/shows, Paul also can currently be seen touring throughout the UK with the ‘Kings of Swing’ tour. It is a great show that allows him to sing and enjoy the material of some of the artists he grew up listening to using his own voice and not impersonating others, backed by the world famous live 15 piece ‘Nelson Riddle Tribute Orchestra’.
Paul’s highly acclaimed rich vocals have frequently been compared to a young Sinatra / Connick Jnr. As well as appearing in ‘Kings Of Swing,’ Paul also performs a solo Swing show tailored to client requirements so you can either sit back and enjoy or dance the night away! Paul performs a compilation of classic songs that never fade with time.
A natural showman, Paul delivers each show with style and charisma, bringing you first class entertainment and an evening of magic!

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!
Amy Casey – Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council
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.
George – Golden Sands Holiday Park
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.
