BLACKPOOL’S only dedicated over 25s bar has lined up the country’s leading Adele tribute act for its opening night on March 29.

Copacabana on Clifton Street is also featuring disco stars Odyssey, and tributes to Michael Buble, Diana Ross and Whitney Houston in its opening weeks.

Olivia Leigh, the opening night act, has firmly established herself as one of the UK’s leading solo artiste performers over the last decade and now specialises in her tribute to Adele, performing material from the hit albums 21 and 19.

Odyssey – the real deal, not a tribute act – follow on Friday March 30. They will be performing hits such as Native New Yorker and If You’re Looking for a Way Out, to the classic Going Back To My Roots and Inside Out.

Michael Bublé tribute act Adam Brown (April 20) is based in Manchester, performing all of Bublé‘s popular hits including Home, Haven’t Met You Yet, Hollywood and Cry Me A River.

Beverly Savarin performs her tribute to Whitney Houston on April 13. With a natural ability and passion for performance and an outstanding five octave range, Beverly has achieved many accolades in her career. Tottenham-born, she released four albums and had a top-20 dance hit in the USA.

Beverly returned to the UK last year to enter the X Factor where she impressed all four judges with her voice, but due to her previous success in the USA was unable to continue in the competition.

She has always included Whitney Houston songs in her repertoire and now pays her tribute with a one-hour show including the 1980s hits through to blockbuster The Bodyguard.

Jacky Webbe has been singing for many years and first came to light when she appeared on Opportunity Knocks with the late Les Dawson.

Following this, Jacky went on to support artistes such as Michael Barrymore, Freddie Starr, Elvis Costello and The Three Degrees, and has also appeared with a variety of other celebrities.

It was about 15 years ago that Jacky decided to perform her tribute to Diana Ross, which started with her winning her heat in Stars in Your Eyes and performing in the grand final.

Since then, Jacky has performed regularly in Butlin’s and Pontins, top hotels and corporate events. She will be at Copacabana on April 6.
