Life just gets better and better for Mike Denver. He has just completed one of the busiest summers of his singing career to date and sees next Saturday night’s appearance with his band at the Tullyglass House Hotel, Ballymena as a major event in his calendar.
Spain, England and Scotland are just some of the countries to which Mike has been with his band recently and the indications are that he will continue to log up the miles for some time to come.
He has no doubt, though, as to just what is the most important element in his whole approach to the entertainment business.
“The fans are the most important thing in any singer’s career because without fans you have nothing” said Mike, adding: “I have very loyal fans that travel the length and breadth of the country to my gigs.
“I get cards, presents and all sorts of things from the fans and I think they are great. They send me stuff all the time from teddies, pens, pictures, letters and postcards to ornaments and I appreciate each and every one of them.
“I spend a lot of time with my fans both before and after the gig chatting, I’m very lucky that they will wait after a gig to talk to me. I’m happy to listen to what they want to talk about even if it’s their problems. It’s amazing to hear all their stories and it’s good to be part of their ups and downs because at the end of the day they are no different to mine.
“Sometimes people ask me if I have a problem with being recognised but I don’t mind being stopped at all for an autograph or a photo with someone. I certainly hope to be asked to have plenty of pictures taken at the Tullyglass House Hotel on Saturday.”
Having enjoyed considerable success with his hit single ‘Tommy K’ Mike will shortly be releasing a new CD which should help him to further enhance his popularity.
“I am always on the look-out for new material and I think we have some exciting songs in the pipeline,” reveals Mike.
Doors will open at the Tullyglass House Hotel on Saturday at 9.00 and admission to the dance is £12. A six-course carvery meal including admission to the dance is priced at a very modest £24.
