Is a Guitar Singer right for my event?
Guitar Singers are a remarkably versatile form of entertainment, taking up little room while providing everything from background music, to sing-along, or music to get everyone up on the dance floor. They can create every type of mood from warm and romantic to high-energy and even comedy. Our wonderful singers also cover every type of music you could possibly want to hear, including Pop and Rock from the 60s to today’s hits, Country and Blues and even vocal impressionists and comedy singers. There’s something to please every crowd, for an 80th Birthday or a 16th, a Wedding or promotional event.
Guitar singers are an ever-popular choice for that ultimate romantic occasion. Imagine a beautiful voice and mellow guitar playing as the bride appears. The same singer can also provide wonderful background music for your drinks reception or wedding breakfast, and even go on to a more high-energy set that will get everyone up and dancing later in the evening. The great joy of a guitar singer is that they really can provide music for every mood and enhance the happy atmosphere at any point during your wonderful day.
Corporate and Charity Events
Having a singer to greet your guests as they arrive can really start your event off on the right note. The sound of a talented vocalist and guitar player gives your guests something to talk about and provides the perfect, crowd-warming backdrop to those more formal events. You can also choose an act to really enhance the theme of your event, be it a Rock-and-Roll 60s style party or Christmas special with those favourite festive songs. They can also be combined with a DJ to provide entertainment for all-day events and festivals.
The key to a fantastic and memorable party is to provide entertainment that will thrill and delight all of your guests, from toddlers to grandmas and everyone in-between. Singers and bands are an ideal choice in this respect, since they can cater to every taste over the course of their set, and many of our Guitar Singers will cover a wide variety of genres and eras. For younger crowds a singer-songwriter with their own original material can really make your party one to talk about, providing completely original entertainment that will fill everyone with energy and enthusiasm.
Another fantastic way to keep your guests smiling is to ask your act to include a karaoke-style element to their set, where they will play and sing duets with anyone brave enough to give it a try. You can even ask your guests for their favourite songs before the event and pick ones out of the hat to be performed.
Guitar singers provide incredible value for money and can be key to getting crowds involved in your brand at any number of events. They require little space so can perform everywhere from shops to a train station or shopping mall. They are sure to get the crowd involved and singing along, and with a little thought and planning you could get them to adapt song-lyrics to market your product.
How much will a Guitar Singer cost?
The cost of a Guitar Singer will depend largely on how experienced they are and how far they have to travel to your event. In all instances they will have been practising for many years and invest time and money in developing their act so that they can provide perfect entertainment. On average performers will change £300 - £500 in the UK ($500 in the U.S. and €600 in Europe).
