Blackpool’s best cabaret acts

Live entertainment is something we’ve been aching for since the COVID restrictions were first put in place. Getting dressed up, heading out for a night on the town and some excellent entertainment. And I bet you’ve been dying for it, too.

Since live performances seem to be on the horizon again, we’ve put together a list of some of Blackpool’s best cabaret acts to get you all excited about hitting the seaside resort’s greatest bars again.

Dean Stansby

Dean has had an incredibly impressive career. The pianist/vocalist’s career highlights include performing as a support act for Westlife and working alongside comedians John Bishop and Ricky Tomlinson. Dean is known for his spectacular performances that pay tribute to many of the greats.

His show “Through The Decades” sees him crooning his way through the ’50s all the way up to the noughties. He covers songs by the likes of The Four Tops, Olly Murs, Michael Buble, The Temptations, Luther Vandross, and many hit singers. All in one show!

His other shows include “The Rat Pack Meets Buble” - a night of timeless classics to modern swing icons - and “The Piano Man”, covering Elton John, Billy Joel, and other similar ivory-tinkling music icons. With his exceptional ability to cover songs from all the best decades of music, Dean is the perfect performer to create the best atmosphere with his takes on timeless classics.

Joey Blower

Joey is somewhat famous in Blackpool’s live entertainment scene. And with almost three decades of experience under his belt, you can see why. Joey’s known for his fun and bubbly personality. As a host and compere, he brings personality and life to the shows, hosting the Blackpool Illuminations switch-on event for five years.

And as a comedian, he brings old school comedy to light up your evening. Known for his “telling it as it is” cheeky humour, Joey has been putting on iconic shows in Blackpool since 1993. And if that wasn’t enough to convince you, his years of service to Blackpool’s live entertainment have earned him a spot on Blackpool’s Comedy Carpet!

The Kings and Queens of Rock, Pop and Roll

You just can’t beat a good tribute act, can you? And Central Pier’s Showbar has more than you can shake a stick at. From Michael Jackson to Whitney Houston, Britney Spears to Elvis, there’s something for everybody at this show.

Pulling off impressions of some of music’s greatest rock and pop legends is no easy feat, but it’s second nature to this talented bunch. Known for creating a magical atmosphere from the get-go, their three-hour set will fly by as each act takes to the stage to win you over in an impressive all-the-frills performance. It’ll leave you wondering where the time went and when you can catch the next show.

It’s been a long year, but with live performances on the horizon, we can’t help but get excited at all the top talent Blackpool has to offer. So when you’re next in Blackpool, why not see if you can catch one of these legends live?

Situated on the seafront, The Royal Boston Hotel is the perfect hotel for a relaxing getaway, with nightly performances from some of Blackpool’s best cabaret performers. Book your stay with us today on 01253 923 000.
