However, it doesn't stop there. Along with the voice, Andrew has all the Master's moves, nuances and onstage behaviour off to a tee. Add in the 70's stylish(!) costumes and you have the whole package. Andrew concentrate's on Tom's 70's Vegas residency period and boy! does he do it justice.
Whether singing with a full backing band or the budget backing tracks package, this tribute act completely delivers. Belting out the huge vocal range, in the original key, with the same power and control as the Welsh legend, he dominates the stage as the king of cool music.

Sir Tom Jones - A Long And Successful Career
Tom Jones is an international star who sang his way to the top of the charts with hits like What's New Pussycat? and It's Not Unusual. Jones was born in Wales in 1940 and saw a rise in fame that included hit songs, albums, and a popular television show.
His career started in 1963 when he formed Tommy Scott and the Senators, a small, but locally popular band. In 1964, Jones was discovered by Gordon Mills, a manager based in London. Jones changed his name from Thomas John Woodward to Tom Jones and began his solo career. While his first solo attempt didn't see much success, his second, It's Not Unusual hit #1 on the British Charts the very next year. Jones style was heavily influenced by pop, rock, and blues.
This success earned him a spot on the Ed Sullivan Show which led to more successful singles, including Green Green Grass of Home And With These Hands.
He starred in his own television show from 1969 to 1971. The show, called This Is Tom Jones, aired in both Great Britain and the United States. Following the end of the show, Jones toured internationally throughout the 1970s and launched his own record label, MAM Records.
In 1986, Tom found himself back on the British charts with A Boy From Nowhere. He collaborated with many other artists in the following years, including Prince and Van Morrison. Still active, into the 1990s, he released several more albums, including How To Swing It, The Lead, and Reload. Reload sold enough copies in the United Kingdom to go platinum six times - a fantastic tribute to the artist!.
He also ventured into television again during the 90s, hosting the MTV Europe Awards, appearing in The Simpsons as himself, and hosting the American Music Awards. He also acted in two films, Agnes Brown and Mars Attacks.
Tom continued his successful career throughout the 2000s, winning many awards and accolades. These included Best Male Artist in Britain. He also performed for the Clinton White House and for the Queen's Golden Jubilee.
He became a judge on the British version of Th Voice and also released Spirit in the Room, a cover album featuring songs from Paul Simon, Paul McCartney, and other singers. He released his 41st studio album in 2015 and also published his memoir that same year.
In 1995, he was awarded the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II and was knighted in 2005. He continues to perform today.
