ABOUT ME

"The Spirit of Sinatra" The Times

"The epitome of Cool" The Guardian

"One of the best in the business" Musician Magazine

Singing Jazz for over twenty years David is no stranger to world class jazz clubs and concert halls such as renowned Jazz club Ronnie Scott's in London's famous Soho district,The National Theatre, Royal Festival Hall, The Royal Opera House, Dublin's National Concert Hall, Waldarf Hotel London, Grosvener House London, Royal Garden Kensington, Kuala Lumpur international Jazz Festival,

Al Silla Ballroom at the Grand Hyatt hotel in Doha..

You can hire the incredible vocal talents of David as a solo act, backed by only the finest, hand-crafted Big Band backing tracks from the unmistakable era of Frank Sinatra and his world famous Rat Pack.

Or, if you prefer the quintessential ambience of a cutting edge Jazz trio, David's swinging band and the repertoire of all the great singers of the era, will light up your event with and elegant mixture of charm and dazzling musicianship that blends a contemporary and innovative performance approach that is fresh and exhilarating.

"With a voice as distinctive as Jamie Cullum's, but entirely his own." Dave Gelly - The Observer

David's straight ahead singing style has been compared in the Jazz press to Jazz icons such as Chet Baker, Frank Sinatra and Mel Tormé, but his approach, while having one foot firmly in the traditions of the classic Jazz singer, he is constantly finding ways of exploring the classic songs and making them fresh, innovative and fun.

Also, where appropriate, he employs unique approach to the voice and innovative use of loops, vocal harmony and beat boxing integrated into live performances alongside his trio which adds an extra special and unique performance dimension, that makes him stands out from his contemporaries

From the grandeur of venues such as Dublin's National Concert hall and Vast Al Silla Ballroom of Doha's prestigious Grand Hyatt Hotel to the intimacy of the world famous Ronnie Scott's Jazz club in London David loves playfully connecting with audiences and delighting them with a spontaneous and innovative approach to Classic Jazz standards that always surprises and delights the listener.

Booked David Tughan for a Wedding
5.0  

I wanted to thank David first this morning. what a singer! David has absolutely brilliant, he totally made the evening, his voice is fantastic but he also had the skill to read the room, our guests and tailor his performance so everyone loved it. I will never forget everyone dancing at the end to New York New York to David’s voice and our first dance was so special to Nat King Cole [url hidden]. If I could do it all again you and David would be the first people to book. I will highly recommend David to everyone! Thank you again to both.

Best wishes

Verity & Waynne (now Mr Mrs Linaker!)

We just wanted to say how fantastic you were performing at our wedding and how much we appreciated your professionalism and relaxed style. The day went like clockwork, was unforgettable and everything we had hoped for. You were brilliant!! The feedback we got from our guests was amazing. Everybody was blown away with your performance. You were a major highlight of the day! Some guests didn't realise you sang our exit song as they couldn't see you! They thought it was a CD! That's how good you were! We were delighted to be able to get to see and hear you after the official photos and the timing of being able to have our impromptu dance to L.O.V.E was perfect! You made the day extra special for us and our guests. Thank you so much. Would love to come and see you perform again when you are gigging. Once again, thank you.
