» Profile

The secret of George Formby's success was a unique combination of personality, natural ability and talent all of which our very own Derek Herbert has in abundance!

Derek will have your audience in the palm of his hand as he sings and plays the ukulele banjo performing from a repertoire of humorous, original George Formby songs.

Derek's entertaining musical tribute act to George Formby can include a lighthearted, cheeky talk on the Life of George Formby, self-accompanied by both ukulele and ukulele-banjo, during which Derek encourages audience participation.

Ideal for commemorative functions and events or private parties and dinners.

Why not combine a Winston Churchill Meet & Greet with after-dinner talk on the Life of George Formby!

» Testimonials

The Northallerton Wartime Weekend was a success in which Derek played no small part as both Winston Churchill and a George Formby Tribute.
- Northallerton Wartime Weekend

What an entertaining and enjoyable George Formby Tribute Derek performed for the Christmas meeting creating a true festive spirit! - Highly recommended
- North Staffs Women's Conservatives

Derek Herbert made a valuable and entertaining contribution to the Liverpool Blitz 70 Event There is no doubt about Dereks competence. Derek switched several times from the commanding persona of Winston Churchill to the cheeky chappy musician, George Formby. Those 1940s jaunty classics were delightfully entertaining which Derek replicated so well.
