Wayne Devlin's Salute
to Tony Bennett

When Wayne read the news that his musical hero Tony Bennett was living with Alzheimer's Disease he decided to pay respect and honour to Tony by performing songs from the Great American Songbook for a full 24 hours to represent his love of Tony's music and that living with Alzheimer's is a 24 hour a day disease. In doing so Wayne raised a fantastic £8,597 for the Alzheimer's Society! See below for messages of support for Wayne from Tony Bennett and the Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Wayne Awarded the Prime Minister's Points of Light Award

In a personal letter to Wayne, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:


“Thank you for your recent 24 hour ‘Swing-a-thon’ in honour of the great Tony Bennett. Music is incredibly therapeutic for dementia sufferers and your soothing crooning will have brought joy and calm to many living with the disease.


“The funds you have raised will also help to further pioneering research into the disease. This, in addition to the £500,000 you have raised over the last decade, will have a huge impact on people’s lives.”

Smile!

With everything that's going on in the world don't forget to take a moment to 'smile'! You may not feel like doing so but, 'you'll see the sun come shining through if you just smile'! There's never been a more apt time for this song than right now. Things WILL get better!

Due to the Covid-19 epidemic all upcoming performances are now cancelled.

"Wayne Devlin has a vocal style that has been likened to a young Frank Sinatra; crooning, seductive and incredibly soulful. His lyrical talent is familiar, yet new, classic yet innovative, and without any effort at all Devlin is bringing jazz back into our ears and hearts".
