For Events Galas and Parties
New this year Huw Lewis is offering a variety of themed entertainment to give specific content to an event, adding a special focus for the show. As always with Huw Lewis’ performances these are totally live shows, no “karaoke” backing tracks or clever keyboards that play by themselves. Every note is played and sung live.
