When Kel Harper performs, there’s a little bit of something for everyone. In the tradition of variety shows, Kel combines his many talents for MUSIC, MAGIC and BALLOON TWISTING to make him a one-stop shop for all your entertainment needs.
What should you expect?
As a SOLOIST…Awesome vocals, semi-acoustic guitar backed by live drums and bass tracks PLUS humour mixed with a big personality to deliver a performance that encourages crowd interaction. Having performed in pubs and clubs for 20 years, Kel knows how to read an audience and can adapt his performance accordingly…whether you need background music or to create a dance floor, a sing-along crowd, or an intimate show. Kel has a diverse range of music. He knows over 300 songs ranging from acoustic jazz to classic party tunes and current hits. He has written his own music and he has even worked in stand-up comedy and has a few comedic songs that he can throw into the mix! Kel works as a soloist (or duo) in pubs, clubs, restaurants, at corporate events, weddings, engagement parties, birthdays and other special events. Click here for more info…
As a close-up and table MAGICIAN…Armed with a bag of tricks using cards, rope, coins and even dental floss and a heap of “dad jokes”, Kel mingles with small groups of patrons/guests around the bar or performs to families waiting for their meals at the restaurant tables.

As a BALLOON ARTIST…Kel is not your average balloon twister. His designs are a work of art that WOW kids (and adults). Venues are filled with colour and lots of social media opportunities as Kel snaps a photo (if parents permit) and tags the venue. Kel can even provide custom designed HIGH-END balloon decor to suit themed events such as weddings and birthday parties as well as backdrops for trade displays. His specialty is the themed balloon “selfie set”- a 3D back-drop with fun costume hats/glasses etc where guests can snap some selfies to remember the event. AND for those parents who want to make a big impression at their kids’ birthday parties, Kel can also make special centrepieces, backdrops and candy-cup toppers suited to the party theme.

As a MASTER OF CEREMONIES…with 20 years stage experience and 5 years on-air in commercial radio, Kel has developed a relaxed presentation style suited for weddings, school fetes, trade shows and more.
As a VOICEOVER ARTIST….Kel has a voice that is often described as the natural Aussie male. He can provide 15sec, 30sec reads for radio and TV and can also provide voiceover services for organisations developing online/induction training videos, promotional videos and more. He’s even brought his daughter into the voiceover business. Olivia has been providing voiceover services since she was 4. Now aged 12, she can provide reads that require lots of expression with a sweet voice. Click here to hear their show reels.
As a PERSON…Kel is genuine, friendly, funny and fun. He may even be the biggest kid in the room on some nights, but as he always respected his mum, he’s easily kept in line!
