Weekend of Tremendous Tribute Music Acts at The Kenton

The Kenton hosted an excellent weekend of live music tribute acts with Liam Raven performing as Harry Styles on Friday night and Natalie Black as Adele on Saturday evening.

Liam aka Harry took to the stage in a replica of Harry’s renowned sparkly striped flared dungarees with no shirt opening with Harry’s 2021 MTV Global hit of the year Golden.  Afterwards he got the audience going by shouting out “Oggy Oggy Oggy” and then commented it was first time in Henley which he described as “very bougie” as we have lots of coffee shops and no shopping centre.

Liam, not only looked the part but he had Harry’s cheekiness and charm and  his voice was superb too singing hits like Sign of the Times, Falling and As it Was and Kiwi after which he drank some water and then blew it up into the airAfterwards saying, “that’s my favourite thing in the world to do.”The 1D fans also got a treat with renditions of Little Things and Story of my Life.

Joined by backing vocalists Zak and Natalie who had the chance to show of their voices during solos whilst Harry went off for a costume change.  Our favourite costume of night by far was the classic big marshmallow pink fur coat.  Both Zak and Natalie had great voices, it was shame that Zak decided to hold on to his private parts for most of his songs though!

The audience sang and danced along and youngest member of the audience Paige at just 3 enjoyed her serenade song of Adore You.

The show finished on a high with Watermelon Sugar – high!

Hello was the obvious song for Natalie Black to open the Adele show with, unfortunately her mic set up let her down and it took the next song, Set Fire to the Rain for her to really start the show  and show-off her incredible soulful voice.

Again Natalie not only looked the part with the classic hairstyle, long sparkly dresses, spoke with a London accent and had Adele’s mannerisms throughout.

Natalie sung with gusto, romance and soul throughout the rest of the set which included Easy on Me, Chasing Pavements, Someone Like Me (our favourite of the first half) and Hometown Glory where she came into the auditorium and serenaded the audience and took selfies with them.  

After the interval, Natalie opened with the James Bond classic, Skyfall followed by All I Ask, Send My Love (To Your New Lover) before singing Amy Winehouse’s classic Valerie with the audience getting up to dance in the aisles.

The show finished with Rumour Has It (favourite of the night) with the audience double-clapping along in the chorus, followed by another classic Rolling in the Deep and finishing with an encore of When We Were Young.

Natalie is billed as the best in class of Adele tribute acts and she certainly didn’t disappoint after the minor hiccup at the start.

If you get the chance to see these acts again near here, we would certainly recommend them for a great night of live musical entertainment.
