THE ORIGINAL 60’s ICON, ‘LEAPY LEE,’ PRESENTS A COUNTRY & 60’S EVENING, WITH SPECIAL GUEST ARTIST, ‘SPIDA’ AT HALF MOON, PUTNEY, NOVEMBER 21ST 2018

Original 60’s icon “Leapy” Lee Graham, had a massive world hit in 1968 with “Little Arrows”. He has a wonderfully unique cockney personality and is a multi-talented character who is experienced in acting, singing, cabaret, cooking, writing, broadcasting and comedy.

His act is a pot pourri of country (or a mixture of sixties nostalgia and country) with anecdotes and stories of past, humorous and entertaining events, with a skiffle-to-sixties singalong trip down memory lane which has audiences young and old joining in with gusto.

“Little Arrows”

Original 60’s icon “Leapy” Lee Graham, had a massive world hit in 1968 with “Little Arrows”. He has a wonderfully unique cockney personality and is a multi-talented character who is experienced in acting, singing, cabaret, cooking, writing, broadcasting and comedy.

In the late sixties, he had two Number 1 hits in South Africa ‘Little Arrows” and “Little Yellow Aeroplane”. Both were country slanted and ‘Little Arrows’, along with the album of the same name, actually achieved No 1 in the Billboard Country charts. He completed two successful tours of South Africa. One with Sandy Shaw, and one with the New Seekers.

Still a household name in many countries with a huge personality, Leapy started his career at 16 when he formed his own “Urchins” skiffle group in his hometown of Eastbourne and before long was topping the bill at the Metropolitan Theatre.

An acting career followed with performances on the West End stage in “Johnny The Priest”; “Sparrows Can’t Sing”, and “’Oh Dad, Poor Dad, I’ve Locked you I the Cupboard and I’m So Sad”

Since the late eighties, Leapy, who is an unique and beloved entertainer, has been wowing audiences nightly in Spain, appearing in Cabaret at various hotels in Mallorca and the Spanish Mainland. Occasionally he has returned to Germany, Holland, or the UK to appear in TV or staged live 60’s nostalgia shows and he is now looking homeward once more, and keen to tour the UK again as a new “oldie”.

He recently appeared on the second show of the second series of Never Mind the Buzzcocks, and his life and lifestyle on Mallorca’s Paradise Island, was featured in BBC TV's "Passport to the Sun" through 4 series, which was extremely popular both in Spain and on mainland UK and gained him a new following of younger fans. More recently he was featured in the Chanel 4 documentary “OAP’s Behaving Badly.”

In addition to his very popular cabaret act, Leapy has many other talents.

He is a well-known journalist and writes a weekly column for the Euro Weekly newspaper for which he has been voted 'Journalist of the Year' by the readers for his outspoken and uncensored views.

He was also voted Balearics Capital Radio’s most popular radio presenter over a 10 year run.

He is a brilliant cook, and his travelling ‘Flying Curry Circus’, in which he cooks 3 varieties of curry for 100 guests and then comes out of the kitchen and sings and tell anecdotes, is legendary in Mallorca’s favourite spots.

When he finds time to relax, Leapy heads for the river with a fishing rod and can of worms, and loves to spend time with his children. He also enjoys his Charity work and for many years has supported the Robert Windsor Charity Golf Tournament which raises money for the needy children of Mallorca.

He has three autobiographical books which are available from Amazon.co.uk/books
