Vocalist Jason Lee Howlett has a huge repertoire and can sing anything from modern pop to Musical Theatre. He also performs a brilliant tribute to Frankie Valli with a resounding clear falsetto.

Stage Magazine recently said of Jason: If the future of light entertainment lies in the hands of young performers such as Jason Lee Howlett, then it’s in very safe hands indeed. He’s a bundle of energy when on stage, packs a fine, versatile voice and clearly loves being on stage and entertaining audiences.”
