His career began with a fluke incident ….Filling in for one night at Jules Bar a very famous cocktail Bar / Restaurant when the resident pianist fell ill he landed the full time residency their after the Pianist passed away the following day. He ended up staying there for over 4 years with a stella cliental it launched a career which is still forging ahead ! ” By a very unfortunate fluke i was playing and singing in one of the most famous venues in London at the age of 18.”


perry3I was so young and naive i had no idea that the tall American gentlemen i was joking with was the former Vice president of the United states Spiro Agnew. We would get the truly truly famous coming in ,,,an amazing lucky experience i would play, sing watch the people carefully how they acted and learned how to present myself.

Next came residencies at the Park Lane Hotel Piccadilly ( 3 years ) It was the last privately owned hotel in London at that time ..The Carr family were wonderful interesting kind people to me.

Then i moved on to the Hyde Park Intercontinental Hotel …( soufle lounge and restaurant ) there were also periods where i would do cabaret at other venues for Geraldo …ie a month cabaret at the Dorchester Terrace room and also The Hyatt Carlton Tower. Acting appearances during these years included BBC’s Eastenders and Bergerac.

By 1989 the USA was calling me back and several offers were coming in from the Pierre Hotel in New York and the new blossoming Carnival Cruise lines . However it was Princess cruises new Star Princess launching that finally persuaded Perry to uproot a successful land based career and start a new life . “i planned to leave for two months and never went back to the UK and returned permanently to the US.”


perry2The cruise line industry was evolving into big business and Princess cruises wanted me! It started a new life of super line cruising …glamourous , exciting and wonderful.

A new career was launched 3 years with Princess cruises ( 1990 -93) …then ten years with Holland America Lines (1993-2003) Holland America Cruise Lines gave me the chance to experience over 7 world cruises and create a fan base that has lasted to this day and the opportunity to go to every part of the world and see places and countries you had previously only dreamed about.

Leaving HAL in 1993 I was approached by Celebrity Cruise lines to be part of their permanent line up of feature entertainers . Joining the Constellation in 2003 brought endless fun filled nights in their famous Michaels club and because of the internet evolving brought me new publicity . Great nights in the theater brought memories that will never be forgotten.

But the most amazing thing was the fan base that Celebrity bought me. A yearly “Perry Grant reunion fan club cruise” was created and has met every February attendance getting bigger and bigger each year .

After ten years on the Constellation doing consecutive contracts in Jan 2013 i moved to the Celebrity Eclipse entertaining in the huge Sky lounge at the top of the ship and evening theater Headline shows. To fill the Sky lounge to capacity every night was beyond my wildest expectations and again the crowds were unbelievable in their response.

After 11 stella years of  it was time for a fresh start and leaving Celebrity in May 2015 I became an independent .Fulfilling contracts for P&O , Saga and an amazing 4 months on the Mega Liner Royal Princess .

At the time of writing ( May 2016 ) I am currently fulfilling a contract for the Number One cruise line and ship in the world ..the Crystal Serenity . It is truly a dream come true to be associated with this prestigious company .

I look forward to continuing this amazing and fulfilling journey. The amazing loyalty of the fans who come to see me entertain year after year without fail ..many have become dear friends …some we have unfortunately lost but they will always be with us.
