Wayne Devlin was born in the Trafford area of Manchester, England. His late father was Patrick Joseph Devlin who was born and raised in Newry, Northern Ireland. Patrick Devlin taught Wayne to sing from an early age, but Wayne also wanted to pursue an acting career. Wayne studied method acting in Manchester, London and then New York. He funded his travelling by working on building sites in Manchester and made an income singing in various bars and pubs around Europe whilst on his travels. When Wayne was in New York, he was spotted singing in a bar and invited to Las Vegas where he performed his ‘Rat Pack’ style swing repertoire at the Golden Nugget Casino and the Flamingo Casino.
Some time after Wayne’s return from Las Vegas, he met and married his wife, Val and continued his singing career by securing a residency slot at the Trafford Centre in Manchester, which he held for several years. Wayne and Val work together as a husband and wife team organizing and staging their own Rat Pack shows in their local area, raising money for various local charities in the process. He has also performed at large charity and corporate events, including a large charity event hosted by Irish heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury which raised funds for the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital and also a prestigious fashion show held at Manchester United’s football ground raising money for the Prince’s Trust. He is now regarded as one of the finest rat pack vocalists in the UK.
Wayne has been working hard to build up his acting career and has appeared on:- ‘Shameless’, ‘National Geographic's Critical Situation Hell on High Seas’, ‘Citizen Khan’, ‘Emmerdale’, ‘Coronation Street’, ‘Hollyoaks’, ‘Happy Valley’, ‘Crimes that Shook Australia, a ‘Strongbow’ advert, The A Word and ‘Peaky Blinders’. He is currently auditioning for future roles.
Wayne has been honoured with two Awards. Firstly he was awarded by the Mayor of Trafford at the Town Hall as being one of the Forty Faces of Trafford in the 40th year anniversary of Trafford Council. He was nominated by many members of the general public and the forty winners were chosen by a panel on the Council. Wayne was also honoured to be the inaugural winner of the ‘Urmston Community Recognition Award’. He was given this award at a surprise presentation ceremony in Urmston.

It has been my absolute pleasure to get to know Wayne Devlin and witness his talent. If you haven't already seen him perform, I highly recommend that you do!
We at Team Fury had the pleasure of Wayne Devlin on a few occasions. He sang for our children's charity night, also we employed him to sing live for the ring entrance of Tyson Fury vs David Haye fight.
He's a very good entertainer & singer and seems at ease best when performing live in front of people. He's a top guy & highly motivated with his work.
The very best Wayne.
"I would like to use this part of my website to pay tribute and respect to the man who taught me to sing. My Dad, Patrick Joseph Devlin R.I.P. I am very grateful for the skills and techniques he taught me. I hope to do him proud".
