Singer/entertainer Graham Hunter has been in show business since his mid- teens, with television, films,commercials and photographic work.
As a singer he has travelled the world in this professional capacity since 1988. He works mostly cruise ships, five star hotels and private venues abroad. Iin the UK he can often be seen on the "adults only" Warners circuit, where his appearances have remained popular over the last few years.
Graham worked in tour management, as a road manager and producer for several artists, among them Del Shannon, Brenda Lee, P. J. Proby, 10cc and Rick Wakeman.
He covers a wide spectrum of tastes: jazz, swing, big band, standards, shows, rock 'n' roll, melodic pop, etc as well as vocal impressions of favourites.
His first ship was the Black Prince in 1988 where he partnered the then unknown Jane MacDonald (pictured left) for six months, moving on to the P&O line, Canberra, Sea Princess, Oriana, Aurora, Victoria, also Silverseas on their six star rated exclusive vessel the Silver Cloud, plus other cruise lines - Celebrity, NCL, Airtours.
Eight months of the year are spent abroad performing. The rest of the time is devoted to putting the act together and some gardening. D-i-y is a great favourite (NOT)!
Graham - who off-stage is known as Tony Gardner - has become a good friend of this site.
In earlier days, he wrote a fascinating booklet of interviews, called Then And Now, with a wide range of stars past and present, including Marty Wilde, Jess Conrad, Joe Brown and Larry Parnes. He still has copies for sale and can be contacted through the e-mail address above. - Harry.
