Add To Speakers List

From being part of one of the biggest boybands of all time to establishing himself as a popular TV personality, Keith Duffy is one of the most recognisable TV presenters around and is now available to book as an after-dinner speaker or host for your next event. Best known for his time in the Irish band Boyzone, he released seven studio albums and nine UK number one singles during his time with the band, earning legions of fans all over the world. When hired as an after-dinner speaker, Keith’s natural charisma and likeable personality is always a hit with audiences as he relives fascinating anecdotes from his time in the band.

Keith was initially rejected when he auditioned for Boyzone, but the band’s manager Louis Walsh noticed him working as a dancer in a nightclub in Dublin and thought he’d be perfect for the group. Given a second chance, he officially joined the band in 1993 and over the next seven years, the group gained global fame. The band’s first album, Said and Done was released in 1995 and went straight to the top of the British and Irish charts. It was just the start of things to come, and by the time the band went their separate ways in 2000, they had sold over 20 million records and all 16 of their singles had reached the UK top five.

In 2007, after a hiatus of almost a decade, the band reunited releasing brand new music and a nationwide tour. Sadly, Keith’s bandmate Stephen Gately passed away in 2009 devastating him and his fellow band members. In 2010 they released the album, Brother, in memory of Stephen and it flew straight to the top of the charts in the UK and Ireland. At his speaking events, Keith can touch on this difficult time, explaining to audiences how he and the rest of the group mourned together and coped with the tragedy.

Boyzone remained together until 2019, always delighting audiences with their exceptional array of pop music. Their final album, Thank You & Goodnight, was released in 2018 and was widely praised by critics and fans alike.

During the band’s first hiatus, Keith was keen to try other things and went on to become well-known as an actor and one of the UK’s best-loved TV presenters. In 2002 he joined the cast of Coronation Street, demonstrating his excellent acting chops on the iconic soap until 2005. It was a role he would later return to between 2010-2011, and he also starred in the likes of Death in Paradise, Little Roy and The Black Prince.

Now a familiar face among audiences in the UK and Ireland, when added to your event he can bring an element of sophistication, humour and engagement that other personalities lack. To enquire or book Keith Duffy for your next occasion, contact Evolve today.
