Dusty Springfield Tribute Acts: Maxine Mazumder

Dusty Springfield tribute act ‘Maxine Mazumder’ presents the ultimate tribute to this sixties soul icon. She was a live grand finalist on ITV’s ‘Stars In Their Eyes’ as Lulu.

Maxine started performing at junior school, she put vocal groups together and they’d do little shows at break and dinner time. The headmaster recognised her raw talent even at this tender age and asked her to perform at the school disco.

She appeared on ‘New Faces’ as the lead vocalist in a band called ‘Strange Rooms’ then went on to perform in numerous touring productions as female lead singer.

The look and mannerisms are eerily accurate and Maxine revels in the power and emotion involved in each of Dusty’s unforgettable ballads.

During her career she has travelled extensively, countries include: Cyprus, Majorca, Ibiza, Menorca, Italy, France, Sweden and Switzerland.

“I love every single number in the show, there just isn’t a weak song, she had some brilliant writers and producers around her but at the end of the day it’s down to the way Dusty delivered on every vocal, she was awesome”
