Explaining the dramatic career change after 20 years Sean said: “I have always loved music and was thinking of a way I could make it into a job and that’s when I came up with the idea. I wasn’t sure if it would be a success or not, but once the bookings started coming in it really took off.”

Sean played a couple of gigs in Rotherham, where he has family, and he has sold out a gig at Padiham Town Hall on Saturday, April 20th.

He said: “I am absolutely thrilled to achieve this, I could never have imagined this would happen.”

The change from working on his own the majority of the time as a plasterer is in start contrast to his role now, but Sean admits he is loving every minute of the limelight. He added: “The nights I put on are all about having a great time, very high energy and enjoying the music.

“I really enjoy it as I’ve always been one of the first up on the karaoke, so being up on the stage in front of hundreds of people doesn’t phase me.”
