Roxy Returns To The Kent Hotel

Roxy The Piano ManFor 7 years ROXY held the fort at the Kent Piano Bar ‘Level One’ filling a hole in the market by creating a ‘Piano-bar Nightclub’ that proved to be a great success with standing room only crowds of all ages. These were the people who wanted a night club experience, with live music as well as up to the minute top 40 dancing in breaks that was a contrast to ROXY’S retro ‘By Request format, and in a place where they felt safe and secure.

Word got around and eventually ROXY was approached to perform for world leading Royal Caribbean Cruises. So in March 2010 ROXY said goodbye to his Kent residency and headed to San Juan, Puerto Rico in Central America, where for the past 4 months he has topped the ratings, right across the board, repeating history as he did in the 1990′s with P&O Cruises and the ill fated
Achilles Lauro.

ROXY was so well received by American audiences that he has been offered lucrative contracts both on land in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Los Vegas as well as the lead role in a production show on another Royal Caribbean super liner.

However, after 110 consecutive shows abroad he has decided to come back home for some well needed rest.

He will commence at the Kent Hotel on August 20th.

ROXY says “It was hard to leave the Kent and even harder for Phil Tweed and Damo to fill these shoes in my absence, but from what I have heard, they have done an amazing job, and I appreciate them stepping aside to let me have another bash at the old grand piano at the Kent, after all, old habits die hard, and I really miss the audiences there and look forward to catching up with everyone again soon!”
