Many events may require beautiful background music to give the perfect ambience without being too overpowering and this is where hiring an instrumentalist offers the perfect solution.  With so many to choose from, including Violinists, Pianists, Cellists, Harpists and much more, you can pretty much get any sound you wish for at your event.  Want to hire a Harpist for your wedding ceremony, or perhaps a Pianist / Keyboardist for a corporate event?  No matter which instrument takes your fancy, you can enjoy mingling with guests while listening to a stunning performance.  Most instrumentalists will offer a choice of classical music, or modern instrumental versions of current songs from the likes of Coldplay and Ed Sheeran.  Click here to browse our entire Instrumentalists category on our website right now!

If you are planning an event which would benefit from a solo singer, we have you covered.  From Female Singers and Male Vocalists to more niche specific options like A Cappella Groups and Beatbox Acts, there are plenty of options to suit your next event.  Perhaps you are hosting a Christmas party and are looking for Carol Singers?  One of the main benefits of choosing a Singer over other musical entertainment options is that each singer has their own sound and choice of music within their repertoire.  They make fantastic wedding reception entertainment and corporate entertainment too!  Click here to check out all of the singers that are available on our website and read through each of their individual profiles.

Tribute Acts

Along with Tribute Bands we also have a range of Tribute Acts available to book using our website.  These Tribute Acts dedicate their performance to certain solo singers or vocalists and usually put on quite a performance!  With authentic costumes and vocals to match, you can easily hire a Tribute Act for many popular singers, including Kylie Minogue, Mariah Carey and Adele to more historic singer / songwriters who are sadly no longer with us, like Elvis and Freddie MercuryBrowse our entertainment directory and find the perfect Tribute Act for your next event, no matter what you are celebrating!

Hiring a DJ


Another alternative to live music is to hire a DJ which can be the perfect choice for all sorts of get-togethers.  Popular with birthday parties and weddings, Party DJ’s and Wedding DJ’s offer a more affordable choice than hiring a live band.  They also have many other benefits too, including a larger selection of music which they only need to license rather than learn.  They love to banter with guests and encourage people to get up onto the dancefloor.   Alternatively, if you want to get your guests to join along or are a fan of Karaoke, why not look at booking a Karaoke DJ instead?  If you want to keep things simple, we highly recommend hiring a DJ for your upcoming event!
