Reasons To Book A Live Singer For Your Wedding Or Event

Friday 19th February 2016

Along with the finding the perfect venue, sourcing the caterers and compiling the guest list, music is one of the most important parts of planning a wedding or party. It’s one of the elements most often remembered by you and your guests.

Here are a few great reasons why you should hire a live solo singer for your wedding or event…

  1. Style - A live musician can transform your special day by adding a personal and elegant quality. The visual and musical impact of a live vocalist will create a lasting impression and add a touch of sophistication that can’t be achieved with recorded background music.

  2. Space - A solo singer is an excellent option if you want the excitement and fun of a live performance, but don’t have the space for a full band. They can easily adapt to different sized spaces as well. A small PA, with high quality backing tracks is often all that’s needed to create that exciting live experience.

  3. Versatility - A soloist can be versatile in their vocal style, catering to all musical tastes and appealing to people of all ages. They often work with backing tracks and can cover many genres, including: jazz, motown, big-band, pop, rock, ballads and musical theatre.

  4. Duos & Trios – You have flexibility to add extra musicians, such as a pianist or guitarist to work alongside the singer if requested. When accompanied by an instrument, they can perform acoustically without the need for backing tracks for a more romantic and mellow vibe.

  5. Sound - Solo acts don’t require much in the way of amplification, which can be a great option for venues with strict volume requirements and sound limiters. They can create a gentle, relaxed ambience or increase the energy and mood without being as loud as a full band.

  6. Cost - The cost of hiring a solo artist is significantly lower than that of a full band. If you’re on a budget but still want to be entertained with live music, a solo singer can provide the perfect solution. - As a vocalist and DJ, I can sing during your drinks reception and provide the DJ service for the evening party.

  7. Entertainment - Hiring a solo singer for the afternoon section of your event can be a great way to keep guests entertained during the drinks reception or whilst you head off for wedding photos. Live, ambient background music can be performed whilst people mill around before eating and in between courses, usually building up to the evening reception with some livelier songs to get everyone in the party mood.

  8. Dancing - Hiring a solo musician can liven up the celebrations if you’d like to create a party atmosphere during the afternoon reception as well as in the evening. A singer can encourage people to interact, have a great time, and get up and dance if they want to. If you’re looking for something a little more relaxed and less formal than a harpist or string quartet, a live solo singer is the perfect afternoon entertainment.
