Sean Boland:

Sean performs live to professional backing tracks and entertains with smooth, easy-listening classics from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Perry Como, Michael Bublé and many more, always at a non-intrusive level which allows people to tune in and out as they wish, to tap their feet or sway along with the music, often without realising they are doing so!
