George Formby Tribute by  Alan Yates

Okay so I don't look like him, much to my wife's relief but

I have homed my skill over the last 30+ years of playing and singing just like him!


I offer a solo tribute act to George's music from

his 1st hit - Chinese Laundry Blues through to his last - Happy Go Lucky Me,

covering all the popular ones in between.


I also do a 'George Formby Life Story' through words and music!

With the help of my wife Alyson assisting me, like George's Beryl, Alyson becomes my Beryl.

Between us, we take you through the life of George from when he was born to just after he died.

Alyson telling you his story and answering any questions and me singing and playing his songs.


We have done his life story many a time, to many a different audience,

from adult social groups to educational projects for children.

What the newspapers are saying

Where did he get that voice from?

He was brilliant. If you shut your eyes you could really hear George himself singing and playing!
