Engelbert Humperdinck moved to Leicester as a child, releasing his first single in 1958 at the age of just 22. Interestingly, many people presume his name must be real as they think it’s not a name anyone would choose deliberately. In fact, it is. His real name is Arnold Dorsey. It’s got to be said: Engelbert Humperdinck certainly stands out more.

He’s had a number of successful hits since the early 1960s, including Release Me, The Last Waltz, A Man Without Love and Am I That Easy to Forget. In 2012, he represented the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest, finishing in 25th place. He achieved cult success in the 1990s, recording the song Lesbian Seagull for the Beavis and Butthead Do America film soundtrack.

Whether you’re looking for some old-time classics from Engelbert or even something a little more contemporary, we’ve got a range of pop and rock bands in Leicester for every type of party.
