Music to Make Your Day - Classical Singer for any event. I am a classically trained singer that can offer 'Music to Make Your Day'. Highly competitive fee starts at £150 includes consultation to discuss repertoire, rehearsal, and the performance on the day for me as a soloist. My favoured accompaniment for a luxury event is string quartet. Lose the hassle of organising multiple musicians: I can sing with the church organist, or can arrange a different organist/pianist from the many I have performed with before. At hotel and registry office weddings, I regularly perform using backing tracks. I have worked with many top musicians and can arrange other singers for duets or trios, harpists, flautists, and string quartets to perform with. The starting price for me as a soloist with either piano or organ is £250.  Forget the stress of finding music: I have a large list of performed repertoire and can offer advise on all styles of music to suit you. When you enquire I can send you a template of order of service and possible suitable pieces of music relevant to your day, if you would like guidance. Don't lose out on hearing it: lots of brides want singing during the signing of the register when there is a lull in the service, but sometimes don't get to hear it themselves. The rehearsal is open for you to attend, so you can have a chat and enjoy the music. Depending on the accompanist and music choice, the rehearsal may be early on the big day itself. If this is the case, you can hear selections of me singing on my website. No hidden expenses: unlike other musicians, my only possible extra fee is travel, if travel expenses are required you will be told at the time of enquiry and quoted the exact fee once distance is calculated. Suggested opportunities for a soloist/ensemble: as congregation gather procession (the bride's entrance) psalm between readings after a reading after the vows offertory hymn during or after communion signing the register/schedule recession (the exit) during photographs before the dinner If for whatever reason I can no longer perform at your event, you will be informed immediately and given the option of a full refund, or I can arrange for another performer from a range of trusted colleagues. When you enquire about music at your event, I like to know: the date and time, the venue, the type of service if it's a wedding, and any ideas you've had about music, so that I can quickly help with your day. ...

Mama: The Genesis Tribute Band. Mama…. If you are a fan of Progressive Rock and Genesis in particular, then that title should send shivers up and down your spine.  The track was a central part to the band’s 1983 self-titled album and is a consistently popular staple of rock radio to this day as well as being part of the live set of several of the tribute bands to Genesis that have sprung up around the UK and elsewhere over the last few years.  Speaking of tribute bands, we now have a brand new one: Mama who have taken that song as their name.  Combining the formidable talents of several musicians who are no strangers to the music of Genesis including vocalist John Wilkinson previously the front man of the extremely popular Face Value, guitarist Chris O’Connell who previously indulged his passion for Genesis’ music in both The Carpet Crawlers and latterly Face Value, Keyboardsman John Comish who also tried his hand in the last incarnation of  Face Value.  Bassist Mark Conroy meanwhile has credits in tributes to both Toto (Toto Recall) and Emmerson Lake & Palmer (Noddy’s Puncture) and Drummer James Cooper whose credits include stints with Moonlit Knight and Pink Floydish.  However, there is more to Mama than a simple re-iteration of the classics from Genesis’ incredible back catalogue.  The band have delved a little deeper and expanded the envelope to include in their already impressive armoury, several classic tracks by the solo members of Genesis including Spectral Mornings (Steve Hackett), Solsbury Hill (Peter Gabriel) and All I Need Is A Miracle (Mike & The Mechanics) ensuring that their appeal is much wider than your average tribute band. It is astonishing to think that the band have been together for barely six months and yet their level of musicianship is superbly high, as displayed by the reaction to the gigs which they have already played  to enthusiastic audiences with their debut  gig at the Pacific Road Arts Centre Birkenhead getting the following comments from the editor of TWR, the longest established Genesis fan magazine in the world… “this band have arisen from the ashes of one of the best loved tributes to Genesis and taken things to even greater heights.  The performance at the Pacific Road Arts Centre in Birkenhead rates as one of the most impressive debuts I have ever seen.  Musically spot on the money.  Vocally, uncannily like Genesis and visually, convincing enough for me to suspend my disbelief.  At times it was as if Genesis themselves were on stage.  Either that or they had been cloned - impressive stuff!”  One thing is for sure, the future looks bright for Mama and their bookings diary for the coming year looks likely to be filled very soon so if you are looking for a band that will pack ‘em in to the rafters, book them NOW! ...
