It’s been a busy year already, second showcase, this time in Reading at the lovely Grosvenor Casino, lots of work coming in from that which is great!
I had my first gig at the Liverpool Hilton! Good golly, Miss Molly, that was immense. One of my fave gigs to date. Not just as Paloma, but EVER. Full on automatic dancefloor, loads of fun; even if someone did pinch one of my tambourines…
I seem to be on a mad wig buying thing at the moment. Webster Wigs have got some amazing bits in. I don’t think I’m actually going to make any money this year, because I’m spending it all on wigs!!!
So, where will I be this year? I’ve got lots of local dates in, around Manchester, a few private parties, some festivals, Pride events and one I’m really excited about the 48hr Fitness Weekender in September at Brean Sands (click on the link to book your tickets.)
AND THAT’S JUST FOR STARTERS! 2019 looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun. Don’t forget to keep checking in on Facebook, Instagram and the website for updates. As the summer season hots up I’m sure I’m going to be popping up here, there and everywhere.
Ho ho ho. Like the wonderful Paloma there isn’t much sleep to be had at this time of year. The bookings are coming in thick and fast for 2019.
I’m on groupie duty with Alex, in February who has got a two week residency in a super posh venue in Switzerland. So I’ll be doing a little bit of jazz singing and a lot of snowboarding. Lets hope I come home with all my limbs in one piece. Lots of pictures to come from that I think.
All confirmed dates have been put up. I’ve got a few top secret events and lots of opportunities for jet setting in the new year, so I’m very excited. In addition to that I’ve finally got round to putting up my show reel from the Viva Showcase.
Here’s to a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Happy New Year.
If you’d like to do your 50p of kindness today have a look at my new video.
Showcase season is upon us. This is a brand new phenomenon to me. I’m excited to be trying something brand new.
I shall be performing a 10 minute medley of Pure Paloma with Showcase Productions at Viva Blackpool on 8th November. It has been painstakingly created by Dave at Alibi Productions. Bless him, he is a trooper and is wonderful to work with. He never gives me any stick despite my tweaks, changes and midnight messages.
I’ll also have a shiny highlights show reel to show everyone a few weeks after. So keep your eyes peeled for that going up on my Video page.
Very excited to be working with my wonderful tribute mentor Hayley Ria Christian on Sunday 30th September. She is an incredible soul singer and fantastic tribute in her own right to Gladys Knight & Whitney Houston. Hayley has helped me so much with contacts, ideas, costumes and wigs. She has my never ending gratitude and love.
Filming is being done by Olibo Film & Photography who have a fantastic reputation. I’m nervous but intrigued about performing in a new medium, film definitely isn’t my natural habitat.
Most of the information is under wraps at the moment and pretty hush hush. But I can tell you we will be on location at Siren Asylum with fab performers from Siren Entertainment delving in to Paloma’s burlesque and cabaret roots.
This quote might give you a bit more insight into the theme. I can’t wait to share it with you all…
