1940’s show setlist
"I have worked in the care industry for over 27 years and have been involved with joining in with many of the entertainers who visit the homes.
I first came across Jessie just over 3 years ago where she kindly sent me a sample CD to play for my residents. They of course loved it and we have continued to book Jessie on a regular basis. Jessie is extremely engaging with our residents, dancing and singing with them too, which means so much to them.
One thing in particular that is memorable to me is when I asked Jessie if she would come and sing to one of our gentlemen who did not feel like coming to the lounge. Jessie came with myself and two staff members and sang "Danny Boy" ( which was appropriate as it was St Paddy's Day!). There was not a dry eye in the room and to this day it is still talked about.
Many entertainers are willing but Jessie really embraces and understands how little things mean and can change someone's day for the better. I have recommended Jessie to many of the homes that I looked after regarding activities and they adore her also.............."
"Jessie is the perfect choice for your event. She is an exceptional performer who connects with her audience and brings the songs to life in a way that touches those who listen to her sing in a personal way. With many years experience in the performing arts, her dedication shines through when she is on stage. Friendly and approachable yet professional and polished, her act will not fail to delight all age groups as she shows versatility and a style of her own. We have had the pleasure of booking Jessie for personal family events and parties, watching her perform on stage and in musicals and booking her for elderly residential groups and local pub venues. She always performs to the same high standard whether it is for a small intimate group or at a large theater production and is a delight to listen to. We would certainly recommend her for any venue large or small"
"This fantastic through the years show that will take you back in time to the 40's War Time songs, Rockin' 50's hits' 60's Mo-town classics and some 70's and 80's Favourites as well! Whether it brings back some forgotten memories or just enjoyed for " the song along" - As Time Goes By - there will be something for everyone.
This was exactly what her show provided. Jessie started the show with a few late 1950's / 1960's songs including Stupid Cupid and
My Boy Lollipop. She then went on to sing many of the "hit" songs of the era's mentioned above,
finishing the first half with a medley of Cliff Richard and Diana Ross hits.
Jessie started the final session with an Abba tribute, that included Fernando and I Do I Do I Do. At this point Jessie told us she is currently pregnant with her first child, and that she is also one half of a female ABBA TRIBUTE BAND.
This is currently " on hold " due to her condition. A rousing Sing Along was thoroughly enjoyed by the audience.
Jessie then sang her favourite song, The White Cliffs of Dover which received a great response.
All to soon, she was announcing the final medley of hits which included
Chubby Checkers Twist Again and Elvis Prestley's Crazy Little Thing Called Love.
Linda welcomed Jessie to our village and also thanked her at the end. Unfortunately there were only 40 residents and friends attended. This was a shame as Jessie Bolas is a first class act. Everyone I spoke to, agreed it was by far the best entertainment we're had for along time."
"The evening started with a toe tapping irish jig to get us all in the mood for what was to follow. Jessie's opening song immediately caught all of our attention. Her unaccompanied vocal of O Danny Boy was absolutely beautifully sang,
and thoroughly deserved all the applause she received.
Continuing the Irish theme , which as well as irish songs, also included popular irish groups and any other vague connection to Ireland. So, Jessie went on to sing songs which included The Wild Rover and and versions of two Boyzone hits. The first half finished with a rousing version of Susan Maughan's Bobbys Girl.
The show resumed with I'm in the Mood for Dancing (Nolan Sisters), followed by a medley of popular irish songs. Jessie was nearing the end of her show now, and told us she had a surprise finish to the evening, which she had worked very hard to perfect.
She then sang her last two songs, Brown Eyed Girl and finally Runaway which was recorded by The Corrs.
Then totally surprising us all, she finished by performing/dancing the Riverdance. It was a great finish to a really good show. Attendance was good, and everyone agreed we should have Jessie back again soon"
"Thank you for a very lovely evening. This lady was like a cool breeze as she entertained us last night (Sat 2nd August), with a great selection of songs both old and new.
She had the attention of our audience in her first spot and was even better in her second. She excelled herself with her final spot and really pulled out all the stops.
An entertainer who changed her dresses for each spot, and finished in a red one that our ladies wanted for this Fridays 70s Nite.
Jess, you are welcome anytime, you had been before as a duo, we know your partner had just had a baby, but single or together you certainly left your mark. See you again in the near future.....Thanks"
