Originally hailing from Wales, via India, Engelbert, once plain old Gerry Dorsey, cut his teeth on the nightclub scene playing saxophone in the early 1950s. After being egged on by pals to enter a karaoke competition when he was 17, Dorsey started to take his voice seriously and his name a little less, adopting his famous moniker in 1965. This change proved to be mercurial, and within three years he scored his first number one on both sides of the Atlantic with 'Release Me', even managing to keep the Beatles off the top spot in the UK!
Since then, the Humper has gone on to be known as the consummate showman, lending his wonderful voice to many styles and genres, excelling at ballads.
