ROXY (aka Paul Rothapfel) has just returned to Australia after a 10 month European tour. He was performing several nights a week in some of Marbella's top venues and has just concluded a contract performing to passengers on board many ships in the Royal Caribbean and Carnival fleet. He was part of a great live entertainment team that has been recently listed as the top rating live program across their fleet of 22 ships, including the 2 largest vessels in the world, Allure of the Seas and Oasis of the Seas.
ROXY, a lovable character with strong vocals, brilliant musicianship and a cheeky sense of humour, he has been rated favourite piano vocalist across 4 international cruise lines and 3 international 5 star hotel chains. Still known to have the largest repertiore of live music known internationally and a versatile range of styles, he has been described as one of the most impressive vocal impressionists around, artists include Neil Diamond, Peter Allen, Elton John, Billy Joel, Rod Stewart, Bryan Adams, Gordon Lightfoot, Neil Sedaka, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Brian Ferry, Peter Cetera, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Michael Buble, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Boz Scaggs and even Kermit the Frog... to name a few, but the real magic is in his own voice.
Always in high demand ROXY has fulfilled extensive contracts with 5 star hotels and cruise liners internationally.
With most probably the most extensive song list known by any one performer internationally (4000 songs and melodies including over 30 hours of continuous live band recorded backing tracks) ranging from the classics to the new millennium or Diana Krall to Michael Buble style lounge Jazz to Angels to Cold Chisel style rock), he can cater to any taste using his three tools of trade, a grand piano, blues harp and his voice. Or if you want to get up and boogie you can with his extensive ‘Party Repertoire’.
ROXY is the perfect choice for any event.
