Paul Anka is one of the living legends of early rock n' roll. As one of the original teen idols, Paul was only 16 when his huge hit "Diana" dominated the radio waves in 1957 as Billboard's number one national hit! He cast his own mark on what a teen idol "was all about," and our musical impersonation tribute to Paul Anka encompasses his early Billboard chart hot hits as a salute to him and his influences on American teens' prom night, the event where his songs of young love gave high school sweethearts a real romantic reason to "slow dance" compared to the jump and jiggle tunes of harder driven rock n roll.
Performing those great prom songs and pop 50's-60's-70's favorites, our "Paul Anka" comes dressed out in his sharp white prom tux with red carnation, and adds that soulfully raw yet refined emotion into the live impressionist vocals through a classic styled Shure professional "55" microphone on vintage chrome stand...very authentic in looks, feel and sound, as vocals are mixed with very accurate backing tracks to effect a band in accompany.

There are two types of performance offered. First is the "big show" as a concert-style performance, the other is for smaller, more intimate surprise parties like birthdays, anniversaries, promotions, retirements and other celebrations. We'll outline these for you and the equipment we use.
The professional sound equipment needed for a great show in a smaller or medium-sized venue to entertain 50-350 guests is very basic, of about 1500 watts, and can be provided in a drivable range which is normally about a 350 mile-radius from home base of Virginia Beach, VA. We also have professional theater lighting and even special effects lighting to give a very sophisitcated look to the show. All equipment is top brand, and attractive in appearance with a "Las Vegas" / "Branson" motif. As this is a one-man show the performance is conveniently compact in stage area needs, 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, we will bring a portable professional sound system that is checked as baggage, is also battery powered for quick and easily mobility as for "surprise parties " in a walk-in and perform sense, and works great for those.
For a larger audience, such as 50 -350 guests as in a hotel 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.
Paul Anka's signature songs include:
"Put Your Head On My Shoulder"
"You Are My Destiny"
"Times Of Your Life"
"Having My Baby"
"She's A Lady"
"Hello Young Lovers" ......and more great standards!
