This extremely popular performer is now known for his polished and professional style on stage and excellent rapport with the audience and his vocal likeness to the legendary Roy Orbison is quite uncanny.
UK favourite Paul Hopkins has been performing for over 16 years with his fantastic tribute to The “Big O”. Appearing at some of the greatest theatres in the country including The London Palladium, Paul has also toured worldwide in The USA, The Middle East and Scandinavia, to name but a few. He has appeared in several of his own touring productions as well as working for major promotion companies and corporate giants.
He began his career in 1982 when he replied to an Ad in the local paper and became bass player in The Ricky Preston Showband. From there he went on to work in some fabulous bands as bass player and lead vocalist including “Brandy Snap” and “Kool Decision”. It was during this time he began to tour abroad with his first gig being at a military base in Germany. More extensive touring followed including summer seasons on The Isle of Wight and Scandinavia, three years in the Middle East and three years working for Brittany Ferries. On Paul's return to the UK he left the band and began to put together a dedicated tribute to “The Big O” following increasing comments from fans about his incredible likeness to the singer.
Paul is known as "Hank" Wilbury due to his love of Country music and in particular Hank Lochlin and Hank WIlliams.
