Biography of Steve Symon

Steve Symon - Wedding Entertainer - Vocalist

Steve has been entertaining with his inimitable style of swing in many prestigious venues around the UK for over 8 years. He has built up a considerable reputation for providing a commendable performance at many Weddings, Civic Ball’s,  Rotary and Masonic dinner dances, Diamond, Gold, Ruby and Silver wedding celebrations, Birthdays and Engagements, with a catalogue of reviews extolling his achievements. “I find it all pretty amazing really”, said Steve, “given I’d never sung at all until 10 years ago”.

For Steve it all began when he was cajoled into singing at a karaoke in his local pub. He is now so grateful to the friends that pushed him to get up and sing every week. It was a big surprise to most of his family and friends when Steve decided he would like to sing professionally. In October 2005 he made his singing debut appearing at an audition to sing in clubs in the Huddersfield area. The response was great and demand kept him working regularly for the next 18 months. Steve is very grateful for his humble beginnings on the club/pub scene as this is where he subsequently learned his trade, receiving an award in his first year and being invited to sing at the prestigious Marsden Jazz Festival the next.

However, as his individual style developed, his passion to sing swing became irrepressible and in order to develop this further he made the decision to focus on being a Wedding and Function swing vocalist/entertainer.
 
Since making the move to providing this niche role, Steve has built himself a considerable reputation entertaining at many functions and celebrations around the UK. His charismatic and engaging personality captivates his audiences and this has earned him his reputation as both a singer and entertainer with an appeal that spans the ages.
