Essentially Cher – Live on tour 2022

Trisha McCluney is ‘Essentially Cher’ Ireland’s ONLY Cher tribute act and lookalike impersonator. Since exploding onto the scene back in 2019, has gone from strength to strength and is in high demand as one of the UK’s best tribute acts to the Goddess of Pop.

Despite having what one would consider a very short career to date as a tribute to Cher; what Trisha has managed to achieve in that time is nothing short of remarkable! Already nominated for ‘Best Tribute Act’ at the National Entertainment Awards in 2020 where she reached the final and has just received a nomination for 2022 awards.

Trisha continues to engage with her devoted fans and has amassed a very large and impressive following of celebrity credentials, including none other than top US Cher Drag impersonator Chad Michaels. She even received a private message from Winner of RuPaul’s UK Drag race ‘The Vivienne’ congratulating her on her ability to mimic Cher with “extreme accuracy”. With US based agents catching her promo video on Youtube expressing elation after a long search for a great Cher a-like: “ we have never came across a Cher tribute who can quite nail it” and Trisha had “ticked all the boxes”

Trisha’s Cher has been in huge demand across the UK and now reaching audiences into Europe. Having just returned from appearances in Cyprus and she has been such demand that Pride organisers are falling over themselves to book her. Essentially Cher is due to perform at Malta Pride this September and will be returning as Headline act for Drogheda Pride, she has also just confirmed a slot at the Isle of Man Pride in August 2022.

Trisha began rehearsing her live band soon after her official launch with the aim of steering the show towards live music venues, hotels and ultimately theatres, with persistence and determination to continue perfecting her tribute to Cher despite the pandemic, this realisation is now coming full circle. Pre covid her quick rise to success showed in an exciting booking to support Gloria Gaynor in concert, however, logistics and continued forced reschedules of such a large scale event has sadly meant this could no longer be viable.

Her drive and passion in making her show a success meant that even Covid would not stop her and her fans who ‘Believe’ in her impressive ability to pay the most accurate tribute to Cher seen on these shores. Trisha is from Ballyclare, a shining example of the talent Northern Ireland has to offer. Having turned down other promoters on UK mainland before, she is now ready to bring her theatre show to audiences on the homeland working alongside Musicon Entertainment with the aim of bringing her shows across the Island of Ireland and further afield where possible.


Trisha has a residency performing her solo show quarterly at the Cabaret Supper club in Belfast and spends the rest of the year she will be travelling back and forth from England to Scotland & Europe! So, be sure to catch a show when you get the chance!
