Singing Waiters – Exceptional UK Wedding and Party Entertainment
The ingenious concept of having our fantastic actor/performers ‘undercover’ as singing waiters and waitresses, chefs, guests or firemen has proven to be a popular notion and a brilliant surprise for your unsuspecting audience as unusual wedding or party entertainment. The Surprise-Singers will come up with a scenario to suit and entertain all!
Upon first contact, we will design a scenario to suit your event, based on your ideas and specifications. You can give us an idea for theming the event with a musical genre, a special love song or perhaps if you have a specific idea for the story or scenario you’d like us to follow. The Surprise-Singers will liaise with the venue to confirm uniforms, timings and our
work duties before your event to make sure everything runs smoothly on the day. Surprise-Singers offer a mix of male and female performers as unusual wedding entertainment and party entertainment – all enthusiastic, and full of energy to surprise your guests and have them screaming for more! The songs we choose are tried tested and above all fun and interactive.
Each show is tailor-made to suit your requirements. The Surprise-Singers will arrive at the venue well in advance of the start time to set up the PA sound system, microphones and do a soundcheck. We would then change into our ‘character costumes.’ And act as staff, firemen or a surprise guest and then perform the pre-arranged surprise performance to the gasps and delight of your guests!
THE SURPRISE-SINGERS PERFORMING
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Every event is different, we are proud to provide a bespoke to your 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!
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, singing policemen, and much more. We are open to your suggestions!! Our newest and totally unique to us show is our fabulous surprise singing photographer click here for more information.
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 full PA sound systems, with microphones and disco lights. (If you book package 3). We use quality bespoke to us 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.
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
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!
The Surprise-Singers were absolutely fantastic and a wonderful pair and everybody loved them. Please can you thank Andrea and her singing partner for me for making our evening one to remember.
Hi Tracey, What can I say, both Zac and Andrea were amazing, loved them they really made my speech work. The guests at the wedding were still talking about them and the surprise well into the small hours (in a good way). Wow Wow Wow.... Please thank them both for me again and if I had another wedding booked I would; book them all over again.
We and everyone had a fantastic day and Karen and Max really did make the day. I'm am sooooooooo so pleased we booked you guys as everyone is talking about you even yesterday I had a message from friends saying what a fantastic surprise ......I can't express how much we enjoyed both the singing and the djing......thank you thank you thank you - Regards two happy Devine's x
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
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. Marvellous voices and wonderful renditions of our favourite songs. Please pass on my thanks. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to any future clients.
