The Songs Of Bond - Bond Tribute
Creator of The Songs of Bond, Dawn is a professional performer who has supported acts such as Ruby Turner, Des O'Connor and Canon Ball. Early in her career she appeared on 'My Kind of Music' where her rendition of 'Memory' from Cats was described as 'outstanding'.
The Stage also described Dawn as 'A gifted and versatile performer with a great future in the business'. Dawn's vast experience since completing her training in Performing Arts at the Birmingham Rep fifteen years ago includes various pantomimes, TV appearances in 'Never Never' and 'Brookside' for Channel 4.
She also spent three years in Dubai and toured The Middle East headlining with her own trio. Dawn has also featured as a guest cabaret artist throughout Europe on Various Cruise Liners.
On her return to England her cabaret show became a frequent attraction at Chaplins Night Club in London's West End. More recently Dawn has performed in theatres throughout the UK and Europe as a special guest in the hit show 'Rat Pack is Back' while performing with the Rat Pack at a James Bond themed event held at The Houses of Parliament. Dawn devised this show.
Since then The James Bond Spectacular show has gone from strength to strength and is now a corporate event favourite regularly appearing at events held in major venues such as the NEC and the Royal Festival Hall.
This unique show obviously covers far more Bond songs than any one particular tribute artist can include in one show and corporate bookers have found the format extremely appealing particularly when booking entertainment for highly popular James Bond themed nights.
In the words of the MP John Barron 'Dawn really does have a licence to thrill!'
Throughout the performance Dawn utilises her remarkable 3 octave vocal range to best effect and fully captures the original mood of each song while adding her own personal warmth fun and endless energy to each show. Artists such as Shirley Bassey, Matt Monroe, Tom Jones, Nancy Sinatra and Tina Turner originally recorded the songs and Dawn pays a special tribute to each of these legends during a breathtaking night with Bond.

Warble were fantastic at meeting my needs for a charity night I was organising. Not only did they sort all the booking out for me but they also helped to advise me what entertainment would work for the night that I wanted. They advised me to book The Songs of Bond - and what great advice that was! She was absolutely perfect for the evening, providing great entertainment - getting everyone in the Bond mood. Her voice was truly remarkable and she really was a talking point of the night. Many thanks! x
Booking and organising really smooth, and act was really helpful and quick to communicate directly with us. Absolutely FANTASTIC on the night, went down an absolute storm, and many commented that the price of their tickets was worth it for Songs of Bond alone - really stood out, and is one of the lasting memories many will keep of the event!
