What does a Singing Waiter in the UK performance involve?
A Singing Waiter in the UK performance typically involves one or more professionally trained Singers, who go undercover, pretending to be waiting staff at your event. After liaising with you, the performance will begin at a scheduled time and will usually begin with some kind of prepared accident. We love working out different ways of doing this. This will naturally draw the attention of your guests, at which point the Singing Waiter will take the opportunity to begin their performance. Singing Waiters in the UK are experienced in the musical industry, some come from performing on the London West End in London, and UK TV, but all of them have breathtaking vocals that will get your party started. Whatever music genre or songs you have in mind, Singing Waiters in the UK have the vocal talent to execute it well and hugely impress the guests at your event. The songs that make up the performance are arranged beforehand, so that the audience can get the maximum enjoyment from the surprise. We bring all the equipment so just leave it all to us to arrange. Should you want it some of our Singers play guitar and can bring that along too – we like to mix it up a bit! We have lots of ideas to share with you to make it that little bit different. We will even lend you our microphones and PA systems to deliver your speeches – great if you haven’t told your future other half we are coming – we love being sneaky and plotting the surprise with you!

How long does the performance last?
Our performance starts along time before your guests arrive and you arrive. We arrive before everyone else, carry out some sound checks, then we immediately get into character. We go undercover, pretending to be waiters and secretly get to know everyone in the room. We blend in with the real venue staff for the first couple of hours – when the moment is right, we spring our surprise on your unsuspecting guests. We then perform an interactive set of between 8-10 songs on average, it’s your event so we tailor it to your preferences and usually lasts around 30-40 minutes depending on the audience and how much participation there it. We are happy to be there and entertain – so we are usually there for a good 3 hours plus and really become part of your event.
