Our performers blend in with the real staff at your event, wearing the same uniform and carrying out all the normal duties of a professional waiter: serving guests with witty charm and skill. We take on the role of totally convincing foreign waiters — in addition to being excellent singers our performers are also actors so expect impeccable accents and we promise no-one will suspect a thing. As your guests arrive our Singing Waiters will be in their role as catering staff serving reception drinks and canapes. We work right at the front line of service building a wonderful rapport with guests to ensure that the later surprise has maximum impact. Service will continue until it’s time for the music performance — usually unfolding over dessert and coffee. Your guests will be amazed and delighted when announcements are made and the ‘waiters’ suddenly break into song. A typical performance would last for approximately 30 minutes although this can be shorter or longer as appropriate. If you are not having a formal dinner please do not worry as this act works perfectly with any format of event from a drinks reception to a party in your own home.
The Singing Waiters are unique because all of our music is played live on a single acoustic guitar. We offer a really fun set-list of popular music and our selection covers a broad range of musical styles and genres. Because we play our music live it does allow us to do a lot with our music. The songs that form our act are all carefully put together and each have their own unique style and narrative/reason for being performed as part of the show. You can expect certain songs to be targeted to key guests and if there is a specific song that you require then we are more than happy to put together an arrangement for you
Our act is suitable for any size of group and any venue. We use a minimum of three performers for our shows but we do also offer additional singers. We play our music live which usually allows us to perform unamplified to an audience of 100 guests or less. For a larger audience or when necessary we can provide full sound production for our performance. We are based in London but frequently travel all across the UK (and abroad) to perform and so no matter where your event is taking place we will happily travel to entertain your guests.
