Raymond Caruana Sammy Davis Jnr Raymond Caruana  
From “Child Prodigy” to his outstanding tribute to Sammy Davis Jr., Ray C is a talent to be reckoned with. He began his professional career at the tender age of ten, performing with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, The Ted Heath Big Band & The Jack Parnell Orchestra supporting such stars as Sir Harry Secombe, Frankie Vaughn, Tommy Steele, Billy Fury & Sir Rolf Harris, to name but a few. Ray met his icon Sammy Davis Jr at The London Palladium when he was still a boy. It was only recently that Ray decided to put together a tribute show (in Ray's own words) "To The Greatest Entertainer who ever lived". Ray has toured extensively throughout Europe and the UK appearing at the London Palladium, the Royal Festival Hall and The Sporting Club Monte Carlo, plus appearances on UK & European television.
Classically trained, Ray is constantly in demand as a studio session singer due to being blessed with perfect pitch and a natural ability to harmonize. His wide vocal range and warm tone gives an individual sound that once heard never forgotten. Rays tribute to Sammy Davis Jr is powerful and takes his audience on an emotional journey of fun with The Candyman to his heart rendering acapella version of Old Man River.

Cheap Purple Deep Purple Cheap Purple Click here to hear them
Formed in Liverpool in Spring 2005. This band needed to happen! Not only does Gary possess a passing resemblance to the man Gillan himself his amazing vocal acrobatics certainly brings the Gillan stage persona thundering to life! Gary has been performing classic rock around the venues of Liverpool and Wirral for many years and this experience on the boards shines through. Ian Bamford's virtuosity on guitar superbly compliments that of Speed King Ritchie Blackmore. Ian's faithful reproduction of Mr. Blackmore's twiddly bits is indeed a marvel to behold. Like Gary Ian has been performing in local bands for years and toured Europe extensively with Frank Zappa tribute The Muffin Men. On bass is the inimitable Keith Mulholland whose bass playing is second to none. Now, if you are a true Deep Purple "anorak" Keith should be familiar to you. Keith was the bass player with Garth Rocket and the Moonshiners, Ian Gillan's alter ego in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Keith toured and recorded with Gillan and is still in touch with him. So you never know who might turn up at a Cheap Purple gig! On keyboards is our very own Jon Lord, Gordon Tartt. Apart from working with Cheap Purple he has been seen knocking out the odd tune or two in his excellent Pink Floyd tribute, Uncomfortably Numb. However in Cheap Purple tickling the ivories Jon Lord style is the order of the day and, as in the tradition of Mr. Lord, Gordon certainly keeps those ivories smiling! Last but by no means least is our stalwart powerhouse of thunder, the amazing Mr. Paul Ryan. Rhino has been teaching drum kits a lesson for longer than he cares to remember. Like Ian Bamford, Rhino has toured extensively at home and abroad as drummer for Zappa tribute The Muffin Men, working with greats such as Jimmy Carl Black of The Mothers of Invention fame. He has also worked with Keith on sessions with Ian Gillan as part of the Garth Rocket project. Cheap Purple has managed brilliantly to recreate the sound and feel of an original Deep Purple show. The power and energy blasts from the stage, transporting the audience back to the heady days of the 1970s when British Rock - true classic rock - ruled the World. This band is a truly must see experience.

It doesn't get any better than this!

Ian's magnificent voice re-creates the emotion, excitement, passion and "spiritual" feel of Diamond's songs. Ian's Neil Diamond tribute show take's the audience there, involves them, hands-clapping, and he doesn't let go until a fantastic heart-thumping, foot stomping, roof-raising finale!
