Andy Williams will always be one of America's and the world's greatest entertainers. Tim Beasley, a variety musical celebrity impersonator for over 25 years in his popular "The Martini Men" TM productions is proud to include his unique tribute performances as "Andy Williams." His full concert show is known professionally as "Andy Williams - Mr. Moon River" TM in a complete celebrity impersonation and vocal impression for grand events coast to coast...internationally. too!
In addition to being a top recording and live performances superstar, Andy Williams was also a very important and prominent member of "Las Vegas royalty." In the early 1960's he regularly performed throughout Las Vegas and in 1966 he headlined at the grand opening of Las Vegas' iconic Caesars Palace Casino & Nightclub with the stage production of "Rome Swings," to a sold-out crowd in the Circus Maximus showroom. He also headlined there at Caesars for the next 20 years, ** (also see historic Caesars grand opening on video, below)
[ As a life-long fan of Andy's great music and TV shows, I regrettably never got to meet or see him perform in person. I was in Branson on show business back in Feb of 2004, and while there had hopes of finally meeting him. Unfortunately it was not to be as his famous Moon River Theatre was closed for the winter season. Last year on Sept 25, 2012 we all lost a great and grand gentleman in his passing. Recently, 9/25/13, on the first anniversary of his passing, I performed a tribute memorial concert to him at a Cadillac- Buick- GMC dealership, as Andy had a great relationship with Buick sponsored his famous annual "Andy Williams San Diego Open Golf Tournament." Peace and love to Andy's family and his many millions of fans. Tim Beasley.]

We always get an "Oh yeah, Andy!!!" response when clients see our exciting tribute to him is very popular and available on request in the USA, Canada, the Caribbean, Bermuda, Australia, the UK and Europe. Andy's super-string of hits from adult contemporary, top of the pop charts and impressive collection of award winning "movie songs" made him an entertainment legend, with many millions of fans. So...just consider how grand it would be to have "Andy" in tribute for your glamorous gatherings, sophisticated soirees, all manner of celebrations and even 'Hollywood" theme parties (see our different occasions - event offerings furher down)!
This view of Tim and Andy shows why Tim lights up any stage in Andy's image and aura!
Always cool, casual and smooth like cashmere, he's a classic superstar! "Andy" performances are so fine with great events like wine dinners, all manner of high society events and socials, weddings (see photos of recent wedding at Moon River Ranch near Dallas, TX below) anniversaries and other grand celebrations. His soothing and soulful delivery of songs made all that he performed instant classics.
Tim Beasley, a life-long fan of Andy, his music and grand TV shows always admired the amiable ease and rapport Andy held with any audience, and the velvety way he breathed life into each of his song performances. With years of listening, practicing, rehearsing and emulating Andy's unique ways of "phrasing," feel, tone and vocal likeness in his songs, Tim brings his mastering of the "Andy" way to every show.
(Above is a "still frame" taken from video of Tim's live show, in performance of 1967's very hip hit, "Music To Watch Girls By." See this video on our "Andy Williams Video Collection" below.)
Show is performed with Tim Beasley singing his own live vocals, ala impression of Andy's voice and range, and a highly detailed and accurate visual impersonation in Andy's physical stage presense of similar build, with hair and facial features accented. Whether wearing a sharp tuxedo, leisurely sports coat, or even iconic red holidays sweater appearance, Tim has a remarkable physical likeness and manner to Andy, as I'm sure you'll see in the photos - videos on this site. The live vocals are mixed with pre-recorded "backing tracks" from a CD, flash drive or similar media to effect the sounds of a full orchestra, OR your good band, orchestra that knows the charts for Andy's biggest hits, to reproduce the legendary live shows Andy Williams was known and loved for. Tim can perform as the younger "1950's -1970's "TV Andy," as pictured above, or in his "Branson Years" silvery senior superstar role, as shown below in a show for an exclusive retirement community.
Two types of performance are offered. The "big show" is a concert-style theater stage or ballroom performance. The other is for smaller, more intimate performances such as corporate receptions, socials, client schmoozes and parties like birthdays, anniversaries, promotions, retirements and other celebrations.
The sound equipment needed for a great show in a medium-sized venue to entertain 50 - 350 guests is basic, of about 1500 watts, and can be provided. We also offer theater and special effects lighting to give a very sophisticated look to the show. As a one-man show the performance is conveniently compact, so works well either on full-stage or minimum of 8' X 10' area, but very high in visibility and feel!
For national - international performances flying in for the engagement, for an intimate party of up to 50 guests, (as pictured above) we will bring a portable professional sound system that is checked as baggage for quick and easily mobility as for "surprise parties " in a walk-in and perform sense, and works great for those.
For those national fly-in performances with a larger audience, such as 50 - 350 - 700 - 1200+ guests as in a hotel-convention center ballroom or banquet hall, we suggest the Audio / Video dept at hotels and resorts venues provide the sound set-up for the show, or have a sound re-enforcement sub contractor or DJ company do this, with the types of equipment outlined.
Plus, with Tim's "The Martini Men" ( http://www.themartinimen.com ) variety tributes, you can have Andy sharing the marquee with "his" old pals "Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Paul Anka or Tony Bennett"..lots of possibilities and of course your choice for a great show!
Clients and venues have included many wonderful resorts, hospitality venues, exclusive 55+ golfing communities and country clubs nationally.
