If you want top-class musical entertainment at an event – corporate or private – please do not hesitate to get in touch.
I am a classically trained tenor with a vast experience of performing at events throughout the UK and abroad. I have sung solo sets in front of royalty and celebrities at venues large and small all over the world. Here is a video of me in action:
I have a wealth of stage experience in opera. I have also sung in West End musicals and concerts. This means I have a very wide repertoire which can adapt to pretty well any event. I am a very accomplished public speaker and capable of getting a crowd going and holding their attention for long periods of time. I have performed at events ranging from small dinners to outdoor events in front of thousands.
Recent big events include singing for around 20 royals at the Royal Palace in Oslo, a lavish society wedding at the Chateau Rothschild, a concert at St Petersburg Philharmonic Concert Hall attended by Russian Ministers alongside international Mezzo-Soprano, Sarah Connolly.
I regularly sing at charity concerts; recent venues include the great hall at Hampton Court Palace (attended by HRH Duke of Gloucester), Pembroke Lodge (attended by Princess Alexandra) and the Chelsea Old Town Hall. I also have a one man show which I have written about 1950’s singer and movie star, Mario Lanza. It is an hour long drama packed with the songs which made Lanza famous. I have performed this to rave reviews in theatres and as a dinner show to great effect.
I can bespoke a show for any event but below are some ideas of the type of set I generally do.
This could include crowd pleasers such as Nessun Dorma, La Donna e mobile, O Sole Mio, E Lucevan le Stelle, Torna a Surriento.
It could also be geared more towards opera cognoscenti and include less well known arias from the lyric/spinto tenor repertoire. These could be with backing track, pianist or chamber orchestra.
This could includes songs such as Caruso, Canto Della Terra, Time to Say Goodbye, You Raise Me Up. It could also include Musical Theatre Repertoire such as Bring him Home, Empty Chairs at Empty Tables, Stars, Maria, Somewhere, Music of the Night, Anthem, Some Enchanted Evening and many more.
I am very experienced in Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Buble style songs also. I sing the songs in my style however – I am not a tribute act.
In 2008 I recorded an album of Pop covers for Sony. Again these are in my style, my versions. I have since sung them at a lot of events. Popular choices include ‘Chasing Cars’, ‘I don’t Wanna miss a Thing’ and ‘I will Always Love You’.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to book me for your event.
“Den Norske Klub (The Norwegian Club) booked the wonderful tenor Andrew Bain to perform at our annual Gourmet Dinner at the Norwegian Ambassador’s residence after seeing him performing at a charity event. At our dinner he brilliantly performed excerpts from Composer Kjell Ole Haune’s musical Terje Vigen and then rounding off with a splendid rendition of Nessun Dorma from Puccini’s opera Turandot.
Andrew’s performance was so popular among our members so we decided to book him again for our 200th Anniversary of Norway’s Constitution Dinner, where Andrew treated us to a number of songs from his part in Les Miserables. Both of Andrew’s performances received standing ovations and are among the highlights of 2014 for Den Norske Klub.“
