ABOUT ME

Poppy Holiday has been longing to perform on a stage since she was 4 years old. In her teens she sang in various bands in the Northwest

Poppy currently goes out on the circuit as a full time professional singer/entertainer.

Poppy Holiday goes out as a 1940's tribute with Dave the Monkey making a guest appearance.

Singing songs such as We'll Meet Again, In The Mood, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, and many more!

Poppy loves dressing in her knee high boots to provide a 50's/60's set singing songs such as These Boots Are Made For Walking, Downtown, Let's Twist Again and many more of the popular songs from the 60's. Poppy can provide you with a normal set too but this can all be discussed prior to any event.

Poppy also goes out singing in restaurants etc for the more chilled jazz, post modern jukebox style and world music sets, dressing in my long evening dresses as she get's in the zone.

    When performing my 1940's tribute, I come out dressed in my Royal Navy outfit and perform normally for 45 minutes singing songs to start off that are more cabaret like well meet again, Lil Marlene, Alexandra's Ragtime band etc and then in the break I will play 40's swing, dance type of songs. In my second set I will sing some sing a longs but will do more faster songs that you can dance to, I will bring my puppet out called Dave the Monkey in his army set just for a little bit of fun during the set.
    My 50's/60's tribute will include me performing in my mini dress and knee high boots singing songs such as theses boots are made for walking etc. I also provide a little 60's themed game but will discuss this with you first.
    My jazz chilled performances I carry out in restaurants and art exhibitions create that sultry atmosphere, my songs range from 40's, postmodern jukebox style to a couple of Latino and Italian songs.

Poppy has performed twice for us at the Brig N Barrel, first on for a 40s night and secondly for a 60s night.

The events were fantastically well received by our customers, and Poppy is not only an excellent singer, but a very affable and engaging entertainer. She knows her audience extremely well, despite traveling from out of town to perform for us and not previously being known in the area.

Both her sets for the 40s and 60s were exactly what our customers (and us too) expected and all feedback we have received from our customers has been excellent on her performances, and the nights in general when she performs.

We look forward to welcoming Poppy back at our venue in the near future.

Poppy has performed for us on numerous occasions and has always been loved by the customers and they have always called for encores to which she has obliged. She has a lovely voice and never fails to please the audience. We always have her return to us. A lovely lady.

I hired Poppy Hollday as our artist for a Ladies Evening at a Darwen Masonic Lodge, in Darwen , Lancashire in September 2018. I was principle lady for the event and as such was entrusted to organise the evening.
Poppy arrived in plenty of time to get organised . She was extremely well dressed for the black tie event. She entertained us all very well, and her up beat set got even the most dance floor shy up dancing.
I would highly recommend her for any occasion .

Poppy has sang at a bar I managed and I felt she would go down really well at my mum and dads wedding annivarsry at their home which is in a sheltered accommodation.
Poppy had them all singing to the songs from the 40's/50's and 60's and also had them playing a couple of party games!
Poppy also sang a slow song for my mum and dad to slow dance to which was a touching moment for us all.
I would definitely recommend Poppy not only is she a great singer and entertainer she is also friendly and approachable and very professional.
