Tap Heperi Tap Heperi

Tap Heperi stands for entertainment with a capital E, and although his world successes have taken him to many places, for more than two decades he resided in Ghent, Belgium.  On stage he's like a watch spring that unwinds in a variation of sentimental ballads, R&B, country, Rock 'n' Roll and evergreens.  He has a stage magnetism that he uses to bring a warm feeling of joy to his audience.

Before Tap left his homeland he was a successful record-selling artist and a regular television-guest, still he left New-Zealand to try his luck elsewhere in the world, and in doing so, ended up in Europe only to hit the top for the second time.  As an International Entertainer he uses his home base as a central spot from where he can travel all over the world to places like the Shangri-la Hotel in Singapore, the Bali Beach Hotel, the Hotel Indonesia and many others, where he performs with The Surpremes, and to South Africa to be part of The Della Reese Show.  He was also given a warm welcome in Romania, Bugaria, Hungary and all over Eastern Europe.  He entertained at the Royal Albert Hall in London and toured with Fats Domino in Finland, Sweden, Norway, East and West Germany, England, France and Spain (and they couldn't get enough of him in Ireland), as quoted by the managment of The Parkway Hotel, where he was awarded The Parkway International Oscar 1973 as Entertainer Of The Year.  He also toured around Holland with The Bobby Setter Band.

Tap has a bit of Englebert Humperdinck and Tom Jones in him, insuring that he steals the hearts of his audiences everywhere he goes, with a repertoire that varies in between the sixties and current music of the day.  He perfoms on minidisc, on his own or your soundsystem, with the help of his technician, or with the orchestra of your choice.
