Alain Du Sel
"Alain, you're a star!"
Britain's Got Talent
"Smooth & sophisticated with a twinkle in his eye"
Colleen Leatherdale, The Village Directory
"Immensely popular. Invariably sold out"
- Clive Agran, Aspect County magazine
Alain is a classically-trained singer who puts his own stamp on much-loved songs by musical greats including Frank Sinatra, Matt Monro, Nat King Cole and of course Bing Crosby. He also adds a few surprises, such as a spot of Marlene Dietrich or Joe Cocker.
He has performed at private events for A-list celebrities and Hollywood producers. But Alain has also been known to go busking alone for charity, and once ended up singing to a crowd of bikers, wearing his trademark sequins.
He sings with power and emotion - and lashings of cheeky charm. His infectious humour engages the audience whether he is performing his solo cabaret, or singing alongside his great friend and Bling Crosbies partner Ellie Laine.
"Lovely voice and bags of personality"
Kevin Beale, Channel Radio
"You can *@*%ing sing!"
Len Goodman, Strictly Come Dancing
Ellie has a passion for jazz and blues and loves a song with a bit of 'edge'. A natural performer with a professional attitude, she's at home with standards by Nina Simone, rocking to Elvis or enjoying Lady Gaga's take on a swing classic.
She was honoured to be one of the professional singers invited to join residents from the Grenfell Tower community in a choir led by TV's Gareth Malone on Simon Cowell's charity single Bridge Over Troubled Water. Ellie was thrilled that it went to No1 in 14 countries, helping to raise many thousands of pounds for victims affected by the fire tragedy.
With the Blings, she performs jazz and timeless hits, plus light-hearted duets with Alain, encouraging audiences to join in the fun. She also sings with jazz pianists and ensembles.
