It's hard to compare Dominic to anyone,

but waiter if you please

"Two shots of Italian Dean Martin croon,

a slice of Frank Sinatra swing, blend that

together with a healthy dash of good old

Elvis ...  Bang! you have it “

.....Waiter make mine a double…..

Dominic Halpin Profile PicBy Dominic Halpin Google

Dominic is an entertainer and the front man of his current band, Dominic Halpin and The Honey B’s.

With his father in the RAF, Dominic lived in many different places as a child. No matter where they were, there were always great house parties, where friends would enjoy records from the likes of Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Elvis Presley, Louis Prima and Frank Sinatra alike. Dominic was allowed to stay up late if he changed the records on the record player. These childhood memories were the pinnacle point and root of where Dominic’s love for music of that genre originated.



From a young age, Dominic knew he wanted to be a musician and at the tender age of just 15, put together his first band – a rockabilly band called Rocking Red Roosters – playing local gigs in and around Manchester, where Dominic was living at the time. He had various ‘day’ jobs but music always rivalled as his real passion.


In 2005, Dominic returned to the UK – back to the Manchester area – and pieced together swing band, Dominic Halpin & The Honey B’s. The success of this band has recognised Dominic Halpin and the Honey B’s as UK’s number one Swing Party Band, and if you have seen the band live, it’s not hard to see why! (Read more on the Honey B’s below)


With over 20 year’s industry experience and an impressive array of high profile performances and clients to attest, Dominic’s musical portfolio is diversely spread across a National and International platform with recognition for his work in Australia, UK, Canada, Russia, Europe and more.


Accompanying Dominic’s lead vocals, his main instrument is guitar – electric and acoustic. Dominic has been compared to an ‘Elvis meets Sinatra’ style; very vintage yet contemporary. However you may wish to categorise his voice, whether singing a ballad with a silky smoothness, or a rock and roll classic in authentic 50’s style, Dominic always leaves his audiences wanting more!



This is Swing but not as you know it!

Since bursting onto the scene in 2005, Dominic Halpin & The Honey B’s have established themselves as one of the most in-demand acts in the UK.  They have racked up an impressive list of show dates, from Blenheim Palace to a headline show at the Abu Dhabi International Jazz Festival.  With a client list including Simon Cowell, Elle McPherson and The Savoy, London, their energetic floor show and swingin’ rhythms have entertained audiences not only throughout the UK, but also all over the world.






With The Suspects – Being invited in 1998 to perform on the inaugural cruise on what was, at that time, the largest cruise liner in the world – the Grand Princess.


With The Suspects - Becoming regular entertainers at the Sydney Harbour Casino, culminating in being awarded Best New Swing Club Act in 2002


With The Suspects – Performing at one of the official events of the 2003 Rugby Union World Cup in Sydney.


With the Honey B’s – Invited to entertain at a birthday party given by Simon Cowell for his mother.


Dominic Halpin & Sir Cliff RichardIn 2009, Dominic was approached by the producers of a tribute to Dora Bryan. Having heard his version of the title song from the film A Taste Of Honey (in which Dora Bryan starred) which was included on his CD ‘Traditional’, Dominic was asked to appear on the show to perform the song.  Also on the bill that evening was Sir Cliff Richard.


With the Honey B’s Swing Band – In 2011, Dominic had the honour of performing alongside Tony Bennett at an intimate private concert in Canada.


With The Honey B’s – In 2012 at the re-opening of Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, Dominic and the Honey Bs were part of a start studded bill which included Emeli Sandé.




Dominic’s love for performing coincide with his passion for song writing original material. Dominic has an excessive catalogue of original songs and musical pieces, many of which have been used in TV, Film and foreign media.


His music featured on the Hollywood film Dorm Daze II and has also appeared in several American television series, including Brothers and Sisters and MTV’s hit show Runs House.


Dominic’s version of ‘Sway’ was used in a Russian film ‘Hitler Kaput’ and is also available on the soundtrack.


In late 2010, Dominic had just written a song – Ho Ho Ho It’s Christmas – when he heard about Holly and Lucy, 7 year old twins with cerebral palsy.  The Happy Feet Appeal had been launched to raise money to take them to America for corrective surgery, giving them the ‘happy feet’ they wanted so much. Dominic donated the song, making it available for download via his website for £1.50 with all the proceeds being given to the charity.  He produced a video to accompany the song which reached over 1,000 views.




In 2013, having built up a large collection of self-penned songs, Dominic decided to record them with a creative vision of capturing a true authentic sound. Having always wanted to record in Nashville, this was his first choice for a recording studio. Next was the decision of who he would love to have involved on the recording. As a long-time admirer of Ronnie Tutt (Elvis’s Drummer), Dominic contacted Ronnie, who enthusiastically accepted the offer to join the project. Off went Dominic to Nashville and the CD ‘4000’Miles’ was recorded. A collection of retro-style songs with a slight country flavour, Dominic Halpin’s ‘4000 Miles’ has something for everybody.


4000 Miles Promotional video


This is what Ronnie had to say about the project.


"First of all I  have to say that this project with Dominic was one of the most fun times I've had in the studio.  I love the simplistic approach he takes to his music - never over produced.  His melodies are simple but memorable and upon first hearing I really liked the style, the clever arrangements, his voice, lyrics,- to sum it up in one word: BRILLIANT!  I sincerely hope that nothing but GREAT things come from this GREAT SOUNDING RECORDING!”

Ron Tutt - Elvis Presley's Drummer



Recorded in Nashville, 4000 Miles is a collection of 11 original songs by Dominic.

" What an amazing night we had at The Cinnamon Club, Dominic and the boys were fantastic and made the party a real night to remember"



Lord Ledigo

Managing Director



The Evening Show featured a 5 piece function band featuring keyboard, sax, guitar, drums and double bass, called ‘Dominic Halpin & the Honey B’s’.  Billed as ‘It’s swing, it’s rock n roll, it’s Elvis meets Sinatra…’  Possibly one of the, if not the, best shows I have ever seen.  They received such praise that they performed another 2 times during the cruise.  Including an impromptu set in the ‘Lido Lounge’ which was so popular some passengers had to stand outside trying to watch and listen.
