‘If you’re anything like me you think you’ve seen it all before – you know, the rat pack impersonator with a half decent voice who does a mean line in Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis tunes.


But Michael Campari is something else. He does bear a passing resemblance to a young Frank, when sporting his tilted angle trilby, 50s style suit and shirt collar loosened at the neck – but his voice has a sensual deep rich tone all of its own, an amalgam of natural ability plus classical training (he studied Italian opera), aided by several years’ intake of nicotine. An incredibly soulful vocal delivery, a certain rock’n’roll edginess and hugely charismatic persona gives him the X factor in spades, which is why not only is he in huge demand as the ultimate wedding singer, it also looks as if he’ll be performing at next year’s Glastonbury Festival!’
