Hi I’m Johnny Victory a singer, dancer, actor, entertainer specialising in period music and entertainment from the early 1900s to the 1960s. I provide high energy shows to entertain your audience. I come with full PA and stage dressings for some events. I am an Equity registered performer and come with full Liability insurance and provide the full and courteous service you would expect from a professional.
I have been performing since a child, when I staged pantomimes under the stairs. Like many performers I have appeared in school and Local theatre productions, ranging from Gilbert and Sullivan Operettas to Classic and modern musical theatre.
I studied Classical Singing in Nottingham and undertook Theatre Studies. I also took tuition in Tap-Dancing from a friend who was a dancer in the West-end shows.
I also have been involved in a number of major feature films, my favourite being ‘The Duchess’ with Keira Knightley. The 18th century costumes we had to wear were amazing and the Stately Home locations were spellbinding.
I have always had a passion for period music and the purchase of my first wind up gramophone at 18 further inspired my love of it. Something you might not know: I restore antique furniture and can renovate gramophones, phonographs and vintage radios. Another string to my bow…..
See the Genres page to see the types of music I perform…..
I have a full wardrobe of original period costumes, in fact I have 3! Wherever possible I try to wear them to give authenticity to what I do. Due to their age its not always possible to use them for every event, but if you want a specific look, just let me know.
As I am centrally based to the Country, in Derbyshire, I am in reasonable distance to travel to many events. Contact me directly to give you a quote for your event. Quotes are based on distance, duration and size of event. Ask me, I’m always happy to negotiate. If you book me for a number of events I will give discounts too.
Whatever your event, music is always the perfect focus to make it go with a swing. Please don’t think your occasion is too small or too large, I have performed for all sorts of events, such as: Care Homes, Private parties, Birthdays, anniversary parties, re-enactment weekends, museum events, squadron dinners, W.I meetings, School workshops, corporate events, films, weddings, music videos etc.
I can provide a 1940s workshop for Ks1 and KS2 groups. Consisting of a dance/song and air raid element, I invoke the feelings and experiences of the time to engage children with this important period in history.
