HOW IT WORKS

Congratulations! You’re planning an event, and you’ve decided that you need some excellent entertainment. Look no further! Our Surprise-Singers have been adding the WOW factor and fun to weddings and corporate events since 2015 which (humbly) makes us quite the experts!

We like to make sure each event is as individual as you and your guests are. We are not suggesting that we (or you) take complete control, we like to work with you and guide through the process of choosing what we call the ‘reveal’ (the way we set up the surprise) and the song choices.

THE SONGS

We perform tried and tested songs that we know will thrill and engage you guests. We have the best performers in the UK and each of our performers have different song repertoires and vocal ranges/styles. Therefore, we will firstly ask if you have a special request for a genre of music, be it Opera, Musical Theatre, Swing, Pop Classics.

However, if you just want us to choose the perfect well-known songs, to get the most impact, interaction, your guests singing and or dancing along – most importantly having a great time – we can accommodate.

If you have a song request that is special to you, your family or colleague, it is important to let us know this at the earliest of stages of the booking enquiry. All this information will enable us to select the perfect performers from our team. Completely bespoke to your wedding or corporate event.

How Many Surprise-Singers?

Two or three Surprise-Singers work well for weddings or corporate events. Having more than one performer allows us to ‘bounce off’ each other with witty ‘repartee’ to entertain your guests and build a great rapport with you and your guests.  It also means we can perform sublime harmonies and dynamic performances with different vocal styles.

A solo performer works incredibly well, especially if you are planning on having a more intimate event with around 30 guests.

What are the choice of Characters?

(Although we’re open to suggestions) – Waiter/Waitress, Bar Staff, Guest, Event Manager, Maître D, Emergency Services, (Firemen/Ambulance etc), Chef.

THE BIG REVEAL

The decision about what we call the ‘reveal’ will be discussed with you and we will share some of our previous reveals! Or if you want something totally original, we are open to suggestions!

Each event is different, and each client has ideas about how our Surprise-Singers shows can work! We like to work closely with you, to design a scenario that includes your ideas, after all, you know your guests better than we do!

Once the surprise has taken place and we are in full swing you may like us to interact with a special guest. Perhaps you’d like us to bring a little more attention to your manager – especially if he is a ‘good sport’, or you’d like one of our handsome male singers to serenade ‘Auntie Mary at your wedding’…. whatever you have in mind, we will do our best to accommodate.

The Venue

The allocated lead performer will liaise with the event coordinator at the venue to confirm the ‘costume’ and our performers ‘duties’ on the day. We find that venues are thrilled to have the extra “hands on deck” because our performers work hard and will interact with your guests at the meal – we believe being as visual as possible adds to the surprise element and reaction of your guests

Payment

You can pay both the deposit and the balance using online banking. It is a legal requirement that all our client’s fees remain in our business client account (which is similar to a solicitor’s escrow account). The deposit will be due as soon as possible after the booking and the balance is usually one month before the event.

The Three-week call

Once the contract is signed and the deposit is received, your allocated lead performer will get in touch with you (usually 3 weeks before the event) to confirm the final details. If you want this to be sooner, we are happy to accommodate.

FAQS

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Every event is different, we are proud to provide a bespoke to you surprise-singers service. However, we are consistent and reliable with how the arrangements are made. The lead performer for your booking will be in touch with you to confirm the finer details of the performance 'reveal' and song choices. We will also be in contact with the coordinator at the venue to confirm our 'duties' and our performers uniform, so we blend in seamlessly with their serving staff.
We arrive well in advance of your guests to set up our sound system and do our soundcheck to ensure none of the guests see us beforehand. We will then disappear and return ready and dressed in the surprise theme chosen. If we’re surprise singing waiters, we shall act as the waiters of the venue, assisting with the service including topping up the wine and water and serving the starters and main course. At the previously agreed time in service, we will perform our surprise reveal.

HOW LONG IS THE SURPRISE SHOW?

We act as waiters for service which is usually around 60 mins. Our surprise-singers waiters reveal performance is approximately 30-35 minutes in length, (about 7 to 8 songs with guest interactions during and in-between songs). 

WHERE ARE YOU BASED AND DO YOU TRAVEL?

Our head office is in Birmingham; however, we have a national team of experienced performers.  No wedding or corporate event is too far for us. We have previously performed at events from Cornwall and Scotland!

HOW DO I BOOK SURPRISE SINGING WAITERS NEAR ME?

Well that is a very good question! Our surprise-singers head office is in the West Midlands and not only do we have an extensive team of excellent performers that are based all over the UK, we also have a huge team of performers who are based in the Midlands. While our performers are of the highest quality, we are able to offer very competitive rates due us saving on the extra travel costs that our Southern based competitors cannot! Another excellent reason to book with us!

WHAT SURPRISES DO YOU DO?

Our most popular form of surprise is our singing waiters, but we can also perform as singing chefs, singing guests and much more. We are open to your suggestions!! 

CAN I SEE YOU IN ACTION BEFORE BOOKING?

Please check out our videos from previous events. Understandably due to the nature of the events we perform at and them being private parties or weddings, we are unable to invite guests. 

OTHER THAN FROM THE SURPRISE ACT, WHAT ELSE CAN YOU OFFER ME?

When it comes to parties, corporate events and weddings we can provide you with the entire daytime and evening's entertainment. We can give you the surprise element during the meal, but then can also perform a live singing evening show, plus a DJ, giving your guests complete entertainment for the evening. For more information check out our packages 1, 2 and 3 click here. We also have some other fabulous surprises and ideas you may like for your wedding or party click here for more information.

CAN I BOOK JUST THE SURPRISE SINGING WAITERS?

Yes! You can book as much or as little as you want. The choice is yours. For example, if you’ve already got a DJ booked, you can still book us for a live singing show in the evening or indeed any other entertainment service we offer. 

DO YOU PROVIDE YOUR OWN EQUIPMENT?

Yes. We provide all of the speakers and microphones, we’re completely self-contained. We have high-end quality PA sound systems and we use quality bespoke backing tracks.

 

WHAT PERFORMERS DO YOU USE?

What makes our Surprise-Singers stand out and above all the others is that all our performers are of a very high standard - they have performed on cruise ships, in west end shows, are highly trained experienced opera singers and are outstanding pop or swing singers - all are brilliant actors too. As well as being very talented they are all reliable, personable, hard-working and totally professional. Once we know the theme, hear your ideas or even your preferred genre of music - we allocate the perfect performers for your party or wedding. 

DO YOU HAVE PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE?

Yes. All of our team have public liability insurance of up to 20 million pounds and can provide you with a copy of the certificate should the venue require this.

HOW MANY PERFORMERS CAN I BOOK?

We suggest at least two, however it depends on how many guests you have and the theme you are envisaging, we can discuss and advise you accordingly. 

WHAT MAKES YOU DIFFERENT TO OTHER ‘SINGING WAITERS’ COMPANIES?

We only offer the best performers that suit your event or theme, once we have had a consultation with you regarding your demographic and or theme, we will know which of our performers are perfect for your wedding or party.

HOW DO I BOOK?

This is a very simple process:

 

  • Get in touch with us and let us know the date of your event, what kind of event it is and the location.
  • We can either discuss your requirements and ideas via email or over the phone. 
  • Once you’re happy with everything that has been discussed and agreed, we’ll email over your contract with all the finer details for your approval.  We send our contracts 'digitally’ so you just need to sign digitally. (This is much more efficient and easier than printing, signing and putting it in the post.) You can download and print a copy of the contract for your records. 
  • At this time, we will also issue an invoice for the 15% deposit which secures your booking. 
  • The balance will be due 30 days before the event. You can pay this before for your convenience, all monies received will be held in our non-interest accruing client business account (This is a legal requirement for all entertainment service providers). These monies remain in the business client account until after the event takes place.
ARE YOU COVID-19 SECURE?
  • We adhere to all the latest government advice regarding live entertainment, no act or entertainer supplied by us will breach these guidelines.
  • Current government guidelines regarding social distancing are to be adhered to by all event attendees throughout the duration of the event.
  • Should there be another government-enforced lockdown, any agreed contracts become null and void with no liability attached to the hirer, entertainer or contracting agent.

Wedding event, Charlton, London

My daughter's wedding was made even more special by The Surprise-Singers. They acted the part so well even doing the washing up which I thought went beyond the call of duty. They were excellent and certainly gave the wedding celebrations an eventful start. The performance was top notch filling the dance floor even before we had done the speeches, it was always going to be a great evening after that. I think that all my guests commented on how good they were. My thanks to both of them and I hope to catch one of their performances in the future. Big John says thank you as well.

Crieff Hydro. Hi Tracey

Yeah the feedback from everyone is that they really enjoyed it and the surprise went really well. Even Dean and myself who knew about it were still surprised by how well it was done. I'd like to thank you once again for turning this around so quickly at such short notice, really added to the grad ball.

We hired Andrea & Georgina as our surprise singers for a gala dinner we were organising for a client and we could not have been happier. They were both extremely friendly and professional and very easy for our sound technician to work with on the night. They had all 300 guests up on their feet dancing and singing before dinner had even started! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening and the client was thrilled with the performance – it set the tone for the night and was a fantastic way to kick off the event, thank you so much!

Omg how good were the singing waitresses and such lovely people. So many of the guests asked how we found them, and were impressed by the surprise, flirting slightly with Keith then bursting into the song "can't take my eyes off of you" brill.

Thank you and thank you again

Trish and Craig's wedding

Just a line to say thanks to you and your artistes Brad and Andrea, who acted as Surprise-Singers for my husband's 60th Birthday, they were wonderful, everyone really enjoyed their entertainment.
