Big Band/Jazz singer KEVIN FITZSIMMONS’ effortlessly swinging vocal talent has long stood him out from the crowd of Sinatra-style Big Band singers. This, combined with an easy & natural on-stage charm, has lead to demand for his superb  live performances at numerous glittering events all over the world, including twice for royalty (British & European – inc. HRH The Prince of Wales) and at venues as diverse as chateaux to football stadiums.  His Frank Sinatra vocals have even had the Hollywood seal of approval when he was chosen to reproduce Frank Sinatra’s voice for a major TV Advert campaign with Hollywood movie star Naomi Watts(see Video). And, uniquely, he  is also equally admired for his naturally swinging Dean Martin vocals and was chosen to recreate the voice of Dean Martin in a recent nationwide radio commercial. An impressive list of high-end private & blue-chip clients have also coveted his voice at their events: including media giants NBC Universal and AEG, owners of the 02 Arena, as well as celebrity, TV  & sports star clients and even President Obama’s right-hand man in London (ex-US Ambassador Louis B Susman), a big Sinatra fan. Other media work includes being star-attraction at both U.K. & U.S.A. launches for deluxe book The Rat Pack, launches & campaigns for luxe global brands Hermes-Paris (both in London & in Indonesia) & Louis Vuitton, vocals for the San Pellegrino ‘Dinner at Eight’  U.S. radio advertising campaign, a TV Ad campaign for Price-Drop.tv, an appearance with his jazz band on E4 TV show ‘Made In Chelsea’.  With his own Jazz Band he’s a respected jazz singer/songwriter in his own right, with a recent jazz album released to critical acclaim (www.jazzwurx.co.uk),  a live concert broadcast on Jazz FM, 400 seater Athens concert with pioneers of the Greek jazz scene The Dimitriz Kalatzis Quartet, plus enjoyed sell-out shows at world famous Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London, as well as other notable jazz venues and jazz festivals around the UK – and he’s picked up a fair few celebrity fans along the way too.
