Wedding Singer FAQ's
What do you offer & provide?
I can perform during your wedding ceremony before or as you walk down the aisle. Alternatively, I can pose as a guest and at your chosen time (normally through the signing of the register) make my presence known by standing up and delivering your special song. This is always a nice suprise for guests. I can also provide pre-recorded backing music of your choice at any time during the Ceremony.
Pre Wedding Breakfast (Drinks Reception)
I can perform a wide range of popular love ballads, Swing and Jazz classics, acoustically on Guitar and Keyboard and/or accompanied by professional tailored backing tracks. This is the perfect style of music to create a warm ambient feel for your guests whilst they arrive, mingle and await the happy couple returning from their photo shoot.
For the Wedding Breakfast I can perform a selection of popular love ballads and swing/Jazz classics while you and your guests dine. Played by a mixture of acoustic Guitar / Piano Keyboard and professional backing tracks as an accompaniement. Let me create the perfect background atmosphere and mood with songs made popular by artists such as Michael Buble, Frank Sinatra, John Legend, Ed Sheeran and Nat King Cole. If required, I am able to provide a micropone for the speeches.
Why not have it ALL ? ** FULL DAY PACKAGE INCLUDING DJ SERVICE**
Allow me to look after ALL your music requirements for the day, to allow you to sit back and relax! For example, I can perform acoustic music during your ceremony and post ceremony drinks reception - Classic Standards during your wedding breakfast or dinner right up to and including your first dance - then provide Rat Pack And Swing evening entertainment and DJ type service to keep the dance floor full right up until the end! - Please contact me for more details!
What kind of songs do you sing?
I have a large repertoir of songs, from the 60's up to the present day. My speciality is Rat Pack, Acoutic pop Songs, Jazz, Soul, Standards and Party songs -so something for everyone! For a full list of my repertoire please click HERE.
Are you able to learn a song that's not included in your reportoire?
In most cases and within reason, this can be possible. If your special song is not amongst my large repertoir, let me know and i'll do my best to learn it. Please discuss with me the possibility of this within as much time as possible before the day.
How much experience do you have as a musican and do you have public liabilty insurance?
I have over 10 years experience as a professional singer, musician and industry published songwriter.
I am also a member of the Musicians Union and have public liability insurance of up to the value of £1 million pounds.
What equipment do you use?
For speakers, I use a BOSE L1 System, which delivers crystal clear sound and is visually very discreet. From my experience, conventional PA speakers can often look cumbersome and obstructive. The Bose L1 is just a single narrow column of speakers with a bass box at the bottom. This means I would need very little space to perform and can be as low key as is required. The Bose technology delivers sound evenly around the room and is perfect for a wedding setting, where guests can enjoy the music, but are still able to hear themselves speak! I use Shure Microphones, Nord Electro as a piano and a Taylor Acoustic Guitar. To give you an idea of how this looks set up, i've included some photo's here.
Can you provide music inbetween live singing breaks?
I would always recommend this. My music library is filled with fitting songs to play whilst I am on interval breaks to maintain the atmosphere.
Can you sing outdoors?
Most certainly, providing there is an adequate power source.
What areas do you cover?
Whist I am based in South West London (Surrey) with the bulk of my work being in the surrounding areas, I have performed as a wedding and special events singer right across the UK and even Europe. All locations can be considered, please contact me for more details.
Can you provide a microphone for the speeches?
Do you provide the evening entertainment and Disco?
How can I listen to you?
There is a selection of recently recorded tracks throughout the Website, Soundcloud & Youtube . Whilst the majority of my work is private party and event related, I occasionally perform publicly across the local areas. Please contact me for more details.
