Description

Price from: £300

Anna Is an accomplished singer, with a long history of performing at weddings, birthdays and anniversary parties. She can provide her own backing tracks, and has a HUGE (2,000+ songs) repertoire of songs to choose from. Perfect Music to set the atmosphere for your Wedding ceremony, Birthday Party, Anniversary Party or Celebrtion evening entertainment. She can play a variety of different songs.. Either laid back tunes to sip your drinks to or some more upbeat songs to sing along and dance to.

We aim to tailor make our event packages around you, we can play for as little or as long as you need us, you are welcome to choose any songs you would like to be played from our list and we are happy to learn a song just for you!

Hi Everyone!!! - Anna speaking - I have a huge selection of songs - and can take requests too - so can cater for all age groups... I love what I do, and it shows.. the enthusiasm and fun in my shows are what people talk about afterwards. You Won't be disappointed - (well only if you don't choose me!!) - did I say I'm very modest too!! :)

I'm also the lead singer with a 5-6 piece Motown and Soul band + it is also available to hire as an additional option for special events. More information can be provided on request. Website links are not allowed here, so get in touch for more information

Anna is an accomplished jazz, blues and soul singer, who has been performing with a 50's+ 60's cover band, Bunty & the Beano's, as well as a full 15 piece "Glenn Miller" style orchestra, singing big band tunes from (amongst others) Benny Goodman + Count Basie - as well as a solo singer using high quality backing tracks.

She can also continue through the 70's & 80's to disco diva and electronic music to get your guests on the dance floor and keep them there!

The available list of songs is huge, and very varied, she can tailor her show to compliment your event, or your audience, and is adept at finding the right sound to fit the clients.

A full member of the Musicians union, Anna has full PL Insurance, and her own state of the art BOSE equipment, lights and lasers if required.

"All the communication with Anna was very friendly and helpful
She kept me informed with everything.
Anna was first class and everyone enjoyed the evening from youngsters to oldies.
Anna sang longer than expected and announced different things for us.
The whole evening was a great success and all enjoyed it.there were about 70 people there and we still managed to do some dancing.
Anna obvliously enjoys singing and we enjoyed listening to her
Thank you"

"'At Burnham Park Hall we host a lot of events for our local community and Anna Nightingale is often involved, Anna is so versatile she is our go to girl!
One moment Anna is performing 40’s war time songs dressed in an RAF uniform and next she is singing Rock & Roll numbers at our 50’s night, then Anna
Is on stage at our outdoor cinema event playing the role of Sandy at our or Grease night and recently Anna was on stage with her full Motown Band.
Anna is always a pleasure to deal with while we are planning our community events and she takes an active role in making sure each event is a success.

FAQ
  • Please, describe your act or business in on sentence:
    I am a cabaret singer, with a bubbly personality and a bluesy powerful voice.
  • What are the highlights of your career?
    I sang with a "Glenn Miller" tribute orchestra on the Costa Blanca in Spain for just over a year and it was an amazing experience. I just love the music and sense of occasion with a large orchestra. I also sang at a public "Fiesta" in Spain with my band at the time "Bunty & the Beanos" . i have performed at weddings, and birthday parties for all age groups, and love making people happy - so everything is a highlight as far as I am concerned!
  • What is your competitive advantage (special features)?
    I have a huge repertoire of music from every era, and can do requests at the drop of a hat. I know over 400 songs, and can guage which ones will work and which ones won't so can keep the party going, or quieten it down if required! I also think that I'm more than a singer, and can be an entertainer if the client wants "banter" between the audience and myself (some don't) and I can make people smile! that;s what makes the job such a pleasure.
  • What kind of events do you usually serve?
    I am asked to sing for Weddings, Birthday parties, War time revivals and celebrations, Anniversary parties..and much more. I have performed a "James Bond" set at a themed Charity Ball. a Warm up 50's show for the film "Grease" - in full costume! There is no one event that is like another - the variety of different events is what keeps it so much fun!
  • Who are your previous clients?
    I perform at many private parties for birthdays and weddings, and can provide reviews if requested. I also sing regularly at many Royal British Legion clubs, Working Mens Clubs and local bars and restaurants. I have worked with charities, most notably the Thames Hospice in Windsor, which is a very worthy and needy charity, they require £7million per year to operate. I have also performed in some of the most prestigious hotels in the South East, Danesfield House Hotel, and the Compleat Angler in Marlow to name a couple.
  • How can event planners pay for your services?
    I usually require a contract with a 50% deposit on booking, which can be paid by bank transfer or through Paypal. the balance is due on the day of the performance, the same method.
  • How long do you play for?
    Normal play times are 2 x 45 minute sets, longer if required, but the timings are up to the client. I have sung for 4 1/2 hours at a wedding (with breaks) but that was partly due to the band not showing up.
  • Do you have your own PA and lighting?
    I have 2 sizes of PA system. Both are BOSE and very high quality sound. I have lights and lasers if required. All PAT tested to 2019
  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
    I am a member of the Musicians Union which includes £10 million PLI and also have PAT tested equipment to 2019
  • How much space do you require?
    As a solo, only 1m square. with a power point and a small table if possible.
  • My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
    If I don't have your tune on my playlist when I arrive then I can't do it, the best thing to do is let me know at least 2 weeks before the event. BUT chances are - I will have it - best to check first though and let me know as soon as possible after booking!
  • How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
    I usually take one break of 15 minutes.. If I am playing for more than 2 sets of 45 minutes I will need another break, 15 mins, but no more than that. When I have been performing at birthday parties and weddings, I have been waiting for an hour or more whilst speeches are given and cakes are cut - and I am happy to wait if it is what you require. Your wish is my command.. and I will work around your timings.
