STAYIN’ ALIVE


HOMME PRODUCTIONS Proudly Presents:
The Bee Gees Tribute Show STAYIN ALIVE …


The Bee Gees are indisputably one of the most popular recording acts of all time.

Born in the Isle of Man, the family  emigrated to Australia in 1958, they had their first No 1 with Spicks and Specks in 1967 whilst on a five week cruise returning to England.

Since then the hits have followed with songs like To Love Somebody, Massachusetts, Words, Saved by the Bell, Run to Me, My World, Nights on Broadway, Jive Talkin, You Should be Dancing and of course the amazing Saturday Night Fever soundtrack.

The Bee Gees were indisputably one of the most popular recording acts of all time. Legendary. It's a word seldom applied to pop groups, but one truly earned by The Bee Gees.

Bee Gees Tribute Band , Stayin Alive UK, re-create  the most accurate portrayal of The Brothers Gibb, covering hits from all decades. Their uncanny resemblance has to be seen to be believed !

This show is now endorsed by The British High Commission in Malaysia and our Patron is H.E. Vicki Treadell – The British High Commissioner.

ARTISTE BIOGRAPHY
William Howard as Barry Gibb

Bill was born in Jarrow in the North East of England, he has always had an interest in music and singing, inspired by his father, who was an accomplished piano/accordion player. 

In the late 90's Bill was approached by an already well established local band called 'In at the Deep End' to become their lead singer.After a hugely successful run the band went their separate ways to pursue other projects.

Bill carried on as a solo artiste covering all types of music and styles, but it was always Bee Gees covers that received the best reviews. It was then that Bill decided to concentrate on becoming a Barry Gibb tribute, and at the same time, as luck would have it, Stayin Alive were auditioning for a new Barry to join them in the Spring of 2007. 

The audition was a complete success and Bill knew after that there was no turning back. His main desire and vocation had been realised, to sing as his idols professionally.

As a natural Bee Gees fan, Bill plays the part of Barry with a zest and enthusiasm rarely seen in a tribute artiste. When the band is not touring Bill likes to spend time with his sons Alan and Christopher, and of course his very understanding and patient wife Alanna.

Jimmy Stanley as Robin Gibb

Jimmy became the founder member of Stayin Alive following a successful appearance on the hit TV show 'Stars In Their Eyes' in 1994. He performed the Bee Gees classic No.1  smash' Massachusetts' as Robin Gibb to stunning critical reviews in the national press, in particular The Daily Mirror, who did a separate feature on him and his role on the popular family show.

Jimmy started singing at the age of three to massed crowds at seaside resorts in front of juke boxes, a story that Matthew Kelly found amusing during Jimmy's T.V. interview. 

During family holidays it was never easy keeping Jimmy off the stage, he would get up and perform at the drop of a hat. Jimmy started to enter talent competitions whilst on holiday with the family, and it proved to be a wise decision, as Jimmy went on to win the Butlins Star Trail National Talent Contest no less than three times at the ages of 13, 14 and 15, winning him a Trophy, and the family one of many holidays.

He has played the role of a few legendary singers, once for the Channel 4 magazine programme 'Weekly Review' as the late, great 50's rocker Buddy Holly and in London's West End as Freddie Mercury of Queen in the stage musical 'Freak-Out!' under the direction of legendary TV impresario Johnny Hamp (the man who gave The Beatles their TV debut).

Jimmy has been involved in several bands such as Mr Blue and Lorenzo's Pink Windmill gaining a large following and winning various club awards for his talents as a singer / musician / songwriter. When not performing with the band, Jimmy likes to concentrate on his own songwriting skills and his passion for creating his own music, and also likes to spend as much time as possible with his son Kyle.


Alan Stanley as Maurice Gibb

In the guise of Maurice you would be very hard-pressed to tell who was the real Maurice Gibb. Only for the fact that the original Maurice is no longer with us. Alan has been in Stayin Alive from it's early days and has really helped to make the act what it is today....THE WORLD'S PREMIERE TRIBUTE TO THE BEE GEES.

Alan has been on the circuit for 25 years, his early days were spent in a duo with lifelong music pal Steve Crabbe. They were the North West's answer to the Everly Brothers winning talent shows under the name 'Just Alike'. Tragically, Steve passed away and Alan joined up with local five-part harmony band Legend, the band proved immensely popular on the local club circuits. 

Due to other commitments Legend eventually disbanded. Urged by his friend Dave Marr, Alan attended an audition to supply the Maurice Gibb harmonies and looks to Stayin Alive. 

Alan returned from the audition a fully-fledged Maurice Gibb tribute in every sense of the word. Like Maurice, he shares a common interest in gadgets and instruments, playing keyboard and bass guitar and always likes to stay updated with the latest musical gear on the market, enhancing the sound of Stayin Alive and adding to their reputation as one of the leading tribute bands in the business.

When Alan is not performing with the band, he likes to spend his free time at home, either working outdoors in his garden or spending time with his wife Sue and his family.

In this, their first tour of Malaysia they are Produced and Promoted by HOMME PRODUCTIONS PLT.  A Malaysian production company who successfully produced Leo Sayer, Yes, Prime Minister, No Sex Please We’re British, The Definitive Rat Pack, Gimme Gimme Abba & Paul Robert’s Sings David Bowie.
