We are the most entertaining and versatile string ensemble you'll ever see.. Completely at home doing the whole seated background, elegant string trio thing (we all trained at the best music colleges there are), but we can then also get up, get rid of our music stands and really give your guests a show to remember- singing, dancing, serenading, flirting and getting the audience to clap along in delight! Our repertoire includes popular classics, more recent pop tunes, foot tapping gypsy numbers as well as any special requests you might want to throw our way! We are completely self contained- no mics or stages needed.
We are new to Poptop but have been playing at weddings and parties for the last 10 years, all over the UK and beyond!

I divide my time between Cambridge and London, so am equally happy playing in either of these cities with no extra travel fee.
Live background music can greatly enhance and add a touch of class to any wedding or event. Solo cello in particular has a versatility that other instruments lack: thought to most resemble the human voice, it lends itself to singing beautiful melodies, and can simultaneously provide it's own harmonies. Not to mention the wealth of music that has been written for it over hundreds of years, of which Bach is only one!
Organising an event can be stressful enough as it is, so to put potential clients' minds at ease, I can assure you of the following:
1. I will provide the highest quality of cello playing. I won scholarships to train at top London and International conservatoires (the Guildhall School of Music, the Royal Scottish Academy of Music, and the Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana in Switzerland), and gr...

Our wedding reception is taking place at Ellenborough Park, Cheltenham. Following the end of the wedding breakfast, the day guests have to move to a temporary location for an hour whilst they set up the main room for the evening function. There will be a temporary bar set up just across from the main room in the Gallery, but to keep the atmosphere going it would be nice to have a singing guitarist to keep an up best mood going to pass the time.
Hey Claire, would you be available to play a 1.5-2 hour slot at the drinks reception of my wedding on the 16th April 2017. The wedding is at Kingscote Barn, Tetbury. It would be from about 2:30pm - 4/4:30 pm.
I am looking for someone to sing one song during my groom's speech on Saturday 8th october. The song is related to my partners late mother who sadly passed in 2000. Food will follow shortly after this and I would be happy for you to continue to sing for a further 45 mins, but ultimately i am looking for someone to sing 'Somewhere over the rainbow' during my speech.
Thanks in advance.
Wedding reception at Sudeley Castle, Cheltenham. There will be a total of 130 guests at the reception and we are looking for someone to play a saxaphone set for around 1.5 hours prior to the wedding breakfast.

Would like a talented acoustic set in lieu of a DJ.
Approximately 8.30pm until midnight, or thereabouts - open to recommendations.

The wedding ceremony is most likely to be outside but inside if raining. We'd like someone to play whilst guests are sitting down and play on entrance to bridal party and during signing of register and at drinks reception - 3 hours in total :) We like particularly Radiohead, The Smiths, The Cure, Bob Dylan and the Beatles. I mean flippin' eck if we can have Nirvana absolute bonus!
