Best Performance of Freddie In Scotland.....


I can't recommend Mr Jim Smart highly enough, his performance of Freddie Mercury sells out our venue every time we book him. The show is full of energy, Jim was born to perform, such a genuine guy, who really cares about every performance.

Book this act!

We have regularly booked Jim in 3 to 4 times a year at our venue for a number of years and his show never disappoints. His Freddie Mercury show always does great business and Jim makes sure it's a great night with his fantastic vocals and audience participation. All I would say is if your looking for a great Freddie Mercury act then you don't need to look much further!

We have booked Jim Smart many times…

We have booked Jim Smart many times over the years as one of our Tribute acts (Freddie Mercury). He is a true professional and always puts on a great show. He is always a sell out hence why we book him once or twice a year. The customers and staff love his show.

Jim done a show in our club and he was top drawer. One of the best shows we have had. Jim himself was very friendly and happy to pose for pics.
I would definitely recommend Jim for any place looking for a cabaret.

You may have seen other Freddie Mercury tributes in the past, but you may not have seen the truly unique and thoroughly entertaining Jim Smart in action. Jim's show differs from most other Freddie and Queen tributes, as he emulates Freddie Mercury's perfected recorded sound, rather than how he performed the songs live. 

Jim's outstanding vocals, extensive vocal range and world class showmanship performing the iconic hits of Queen and Freddie Mercury are second to none. He is the master of creating a fantastic atmosphere in any room, where he has the audience well and truly engaged in this high energy show, including plenty of audience participation. 

Jim Smart is Scotland's established Freddie Mercury tribute, having performed as the rock legend for 20 years. You can see him perform in iconic Scottish venues including The Ferry in Glasgow, Scotland’s top tribute venues, theatres, hotels, clubs, events and festivals throughout the country. His Freddie Mercury tribute has, and continues to stand the test of time with consistent first class performances and outstanding vocals, all whilst portraying the sheer showmanship and energy of the legendary man himself.


Jim Smart performs for up to 90 minutes as  Freddie Mercury, with backing tracks (for smaller budget venues), or with his full live band “Live Forever”, available for concerts, festivals, theatres, corporate events and larger venues.

Performing the hits:
One Vision, It's A Kind of Magic, Radio Ga Ga, I Want To Break Free, We Are The Champions, Bohemian Rhapsody, I Want It All, We Will Rock You, Fat Bottomed Girls, The Great Pretender, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Living On My Own, Love of my Life, Under Pressure, Tie Your Mother Down, Another One Bites The Dust, Hammer to Fall, Barcelona, Somebody To Love, Breakthru,  I Was Born To Love You and Don't Stop Me Now.
