A great favourite at special events, weddings, anniversary parties, functions, and as a glamorous retro-style cabaret to add something a little different to that special occasion.
James Bond / Casino style Show “Casino Royale”
A stylish, sophisticated show perfect for James Bond theme parties and Casino nights, brought to you by world-class singer Lisa Martin. Featuring all your favourite James Bond classics, plus songs with a Casino theme – for example: Goldfinger, Diamonds are forever, Luck be a lady tonight, Nobody does it better, and many more.
All these shows can be presented individually or combined together for a complete night of entertainment – for instance a typical ‘retro’ night could include an early evening 1940s style cabaret show, with a 1950s rock 'n' roll party set later on in the night.
If you wish to also cater for a more modern taste in music then that’s no problem – Lisa’s vast and varied repertoire means that she can also include a set of modern pop music for the younger members of the audience – or simply for those who are young at heart! Themed background music is also provided during breaks to set the mood.
Testimonials for Lisa Martin ‘The Retro Singer’:
“Lisa was a star on the night of our event – true class, pitch perfect and a total vision. I strongly recommend her.” - R Tiefenbrun – Castle Precision
“Superb singer and flautist Lisa Martin really is a bit of a gem”
“ This fresh and attractively presented entertainer has to be in the premier league of solo female cruise ship-type cabaret acts”
“Very bookable… one of the vocal highlights of the entire showcase”
- Mark Ritchie, The Stage Showbusiness Newspaper
“Lisa Martin captured the hearts of our young and older RAFA members alike with her renditions of 1940s, 1950s and 1960s music and song. A true professional who judged the mood of the gathering to a tea and had them eating out of her hand! A voice of crystal clarity who sounded even better than the original Artiste! The positive feedback from our members places on us the onus to look at next year, when it is hoped Lisa can visit with us again and be among her friends.” - Del Granger, RAFA Club, Prestwick
“Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. I was thrilled when you sang a lot of my favourites. I was really pleased to see all the guests on the dance floor and you helped to make my day very special indeed. Can’t tell you how much everyone is talking about your suberb show. We have just given our dads the CD and they are both over the moon with them. A big thanks from a very thankful bride !!!!!" – Colin & Elaine Hamilton, Bonnyrigg
“I was delighted to find Lisa last year when organising a 1940′s Tribute Show – WHAT A STAR! I had spent weeks listening to lots of singers only to feel like Simon Cowell! – That is until I heard Lisa’s voice – absolutely beautiful! The show was a huge success and everyone fell in love, not only with her singing, but her charming personality. I didn’t have to worry about a thing and left the whole evening in her capable hands – so much so, we repeated the event 6 months later!
If you are looking for a ‘True Star’ then I would highly recommend hiring Lisa – but not too much as I don’t want her being fully booked when I have my next event! lol” - Emma Brown, Time Events
