FAQs

Below you will find a comprehensive set of answers to questions you may have, if you have any further questions don’t hesitate to get in touch.

What are Singing Waiters?

Singing Waiters is a surprise singing act that is perfect for any event. Our hand picked team of professionally trained singers will mingle with the real waiters and serve your guests until a pre-agreed moment, whereupon they’ll burst into song!

 

How much do they cost?

Each performance is unique and so will cost a different amount. Our team (all of us singers, not salespeople) will be able to talk you through the different options and get the best price for you. Because we run the business ourselves, there’s no expensive agency fees – we cut out the middleman and pass the savings on to you.
 

How long is the performance?

We book out a full day for your event. This includes us traveling to your event from anywhere in the UK. We set up our equipment beforehand and we are ready to go the moment your guests arrive! Our waiters will spend 3 – 4 hours being ‘normal’ waiters, sussing out the guests and making them believe that they are genuinely waiters. From collecting glasses to serving food, we really do get stuck in. When we do our ‘reveal’ (that’s how we start our singing) we sing around 8 songs, which lasts anything between 35 – 45 minutes, depending on the song and the crowd interaction! We’ve found that this is the perfect amount of time to really WOW your guests.
 

Why should I book The Singing Staff?

Well, to put it simply, we are the best singing waiters in the UK. We’ve been in the Singing Waiters Business for over 10 years, and we really know our stuff. Don’t take our word for it though – check out our reviews here.

Whilst we know that there are some fantastic singers in the UK, we believe that there is a real science to being great singing waiters – from understanding the industry, to understanding the audience. Plus, ALL of our singers have been professionally trained and accredited to make sure that you only get the best in the business. We aren’t a big agency, and you’ll NEVER speak to a salesperson – only a singer, who will talk you through your event and how we can add a little bit of magic. With your booking, you’ll be sent a contract that protects you before you pay a penny, and we will do ALL of the venue liaison work, meaning you don’t have to do a thing!

Are you insured?

All of our singers come with their own Public Liability Insurance and PAT certificates, meaning you can rest assured we tick all of the right boxes for the venues!

When do I pay?

You pay a small deposit once you’ve signed a contract, and the rest you can either pay in interest free installments, or not worry about until the week before your wedding!

WHAT IS YOUR MONEY BACK GUARANTEE?

Our money back guarantee means you can rest assured you will get a great performance! We will take videos and pictures of your guests and if we don’t get them singing (or sometimes dancing!) along then we will offer you your money back (minus and expenses such as travel and contracting costs). This will need to be mutually agreed between you and the singers, and we will often use clips from the wedding to show you how much your guests loved it!

What songs do you sing?

Literally anything you want! From pop to rock, opera to musical theatre, soul to swing – we have some of the best singers in the UK who can cover every style. Not sure what type of music you want? Not to worry – we’ve got a sample list of classics that we know will work, and our singers can help you build the perfect set list to wow your guests.
