StageHeads was founded by Steve Nelson and Elly Jarmain, both of whom have a wealth of experience in the tribute industry and still frequently perform at prestigious venues and events all over the world. Over the years they have amassed a huge database of talented musicians, singers and performers, and with their help have built a portfolio of critically acclaimed productions which have toured the UK, the Middle East, Australia, Scandinavia and other parts of Europe. These include the highly successful shows Abba Fever and Vogue Madonna, established in 1996 and 2000 respectively, along with The American Divas and A Tribute To Cher. One of their leading shows HRH, a tribute to Queen was one of the most highly respected tribute shows in the UK for over 15 years and featured the talented Steve Littlewood as Freddie Mercury before his retirement in 2018.

They also have close ties with agents and promoters, and as such can either build or source excellent entertainment for all occasions, all venues and all clients. To discuss any of the shows mentioned here or for advice on any other entertainment related enquiries, please click here.

Steve & Elly also perform in some of the leading theatre shows such as Fastlove UK, Fastlove World Tour, Into The Groove, Faith – The George Michael Legacy, Thank You For The Music and Lost In Music.

Without our incredible team of performers there would be no StageHeads! We are very lucky to work with the absolute best in the business whose dedication, loyalty and talent enable us to keep such high standards within our competitive industry. We thank every one of you… our colleagues and our friends.

    "They were great - perfect for my daughters’ 21st.

    They arrived on time, worked around everything else that was going on and packed up inconspicuously whilst the party carried on around them.

    In short, wouldn’t change a thing. If you could please pass on our thanks to them for helping make it such a memorable evening."

Fantastic night - a group of performers with an amazing act who really got everyone into the spirit. We've had so many comments saying what a great night and how much fun it was - everyone let their hair down. Thank you again and I wouldn't hesitate to book you again! 5-star all the way!
