“If you can’t afford my tickets, go see these guys…. they’re just as good and half the price!!”- ROD STEWART
What an accolade! A recommendation by the Rock Legend himself! The Rod Stewart Songbook pays tribute to Rod’s numerous iconic hits spanning the past 50 years.
This incredible show features JIM CREGAN, who is best-known as Rod Stewart’s guitarist, musical director, co-writer and co-producer of the many hits that Rod is renowned for, including Maggie May, You Wear It Well, You’re In My Heart, Baby Jane, Da Ya think I’m Sexy and many, many more that became instant rock classics.
Now, more than 40 years later, Jim, together with four outstanding musicians and fronted by X Factor finalist Ben Mills, have formed Cregan & Co.
With Rod Stewart’s blessing, they have worked tirelessly to create ‘The Rod Stewart Songbook’!
Best known for his work with Rod Stewart, Jim Cregan joined Rod’s new band in 1975, after The Faces disbanded. Jim became an influential guitarist and over the years, he has gained over 40 Gold and Platinum records and his guitar solo on Cockney Rebel’s “Come Up And See Me (Make Me Smile)” is still a career highlight!
Jim has collaborated and performed on stage with some of the World’s best-known music legends, including Joe Cocker, Tina Turner, Elton John, Cat Stevens, Katie Melua, Russell Watson, Kid Rock, Frank Zappa, Willie Nelson, Chuck Berry and Pete Townsend!
Throughout their careers and from 1976 to 1994, Jim and Rod doubled up and toured around the world writing and performing songs such as You’re in My Heart, Da Ya Think I’m Sexy, Forever Young, I was Only Joking, Baby Jane and Blondes Have More Fun.
Singer Songwriter and guitarist Ben Mills, who reached the final of X Factor in 2006, teamed up with Jim Cregan in 2011. Ben’s rock & soulful voice lends itself perfectly to Rod Stewart’s back catalogue and working alongside the man who co-wrote the songs is a bonus! Ben is enjoying putting his own stamp on the hits that everybody adores.
The rest of Cregan & Co is drummer Harry James, who worked with UK rock band Thunder, Steve Harley and many others; Bass player Pat Davey who has worked for years in the Tom Robinson Band, and Keyboard player Sam Tanner who has worked alongside Alexander O’Neal, Nate James and Duffy.
This phenomenal show features the very best of Rod Stewart and is performed by some of the world’s greatest musicians, including Jim Cregan, Rod’s Musical Director.

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.
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.
