Show­time again for the man of many voices

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FIVE OF THE BEST -

THE tal­ented Joe Longth­orn be­gan his ca­reer more than three decades ago with ap­pear­ances on Ju­nior Show­time, fol­lowed by a ground­ing on the tough north­ern club cir­cuit.

His big break came in 1981 when he was a fi­nal­ist on London Week­end Tele­vi­sion’s Search for a Star, which led to ap­pear­ances at the London Pal­la­dium with Bob Hope and The Talk of the Town.

Joe’s reper­toire of voices is end­less and in­cludes hun­dreds of the world’s top singers, but he is per­haps best known for his im­per­son­ation of Shirley Bassey.

Dur­ing his ca­reer, Joe has re­ceived gold and plat­inum discs for his al­bums, en­joyed sell-out con­certs at the Royal Al­bert Hall, as well as tour­ing Aus­tralia sev­eral times.
