DetailsCreator of “The Songs of Bond”, Dawn is a professional performer who has supported acts such as Ruby Turner, Des O’Connor, Bobby Davro and Canon and Ball. Early in her career she appeared on ‘My Kind of Music’ where her rendition of ‘Memory’ from Cats was described as ‘outstanding’.
The Stage also described Dawn as ‘A gifted and versatile performer with a great future in the business’. Dawn’s vast experience since completing her training in Performing Arts at the Birmingham Rep includes various pantomimes, TV appearances in ‘Never Never’ and ‘Brookside’ for Channel 4.
She also spent three years in Dubai and toured The Middle East headlining with her own trio. Dawn has also featured as a guest cabaret artist throughout Europe on Various Cruise Liners.
On her return to England her cabaret show became a frequent attraction at Chaplins Night Club in London’s West End. More recently Dawn has performed in theatres throughout the UK and Europe as a special guest in the hit show ‘Rat Pack is Back’. While performing with the Rat Pack at a James Bond themed event held at The Houses of Parliament, Dawn devised this unique show.
Since then The James Bond Spectacular show has gone from strength to strength and is now a corporate event favourite regularly appearing at events held in major venues such as the ICC and the Royal Festival Hall.
This unique show obviously covers far more Bond songs than any one particular tribute artist can include in one show and corporate bookers have found the format extremely appealing particularly when booking entertainment for highly popular James Bond themed nights.
In the words of the MP John Barron ‘Dawn really does have a licence to thrill!’
Throughout the performance Dawn utilises her remarkable 3 octave vocal range to best effect and fully captures the original mood of each song while adding her own personal warmth fun and endless energy to each show. Artists such as Shirley Bassey, Matt Monroe, Tom Jones, Nancy Sinatra and Tina Turner originally recorded the songs and Dawn pays a special tribute to each of these legends during a breathtaking night with Bond.
Dawn’s show includes a 2k PA, lighting, scenery, flame and sound effects. She is an Equity member with full public liability insurance, and all equipment is PAT tested.
Dazzling costume changes also take place during the show and even more glamour and style can be added as Dawn can also provide Vegas showgirl dancers, lookalikes and Casino tables for your event.
‘The Songs of Bond’ usually consists of a 45 – 60 minute cabaret set. So grab a cocktail (shaken not stirred) and prepare to be entertained by the one and only Dawn Alacey… Nobody does it better!
