Went to the Walton Working-mens Club last night. This lady was singing and was very good. She even sung Elvis better than some tribute acts i've heard. She is also brilliant at working the audience. I will be back to see you Anna when you are there again. Thank you for a lovely evening. X ....... Tony

She has a beautiful singing voice with a wide, flexible repertoire. After chatting with us for any preferred type of music, she chose the perfect mix while we were eating and t...

Thank you so much Anna for singing at my 60th party. The whole night was fantastic, you have a great voice, I loved your choice of songs, and everyone commented how much they enjoyed hearing you. We were all up dancing the night away! I will definitely use you again in the future and recommend you to everyone. PERFECT!

FAQ
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.
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!
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!
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.
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 much space do you require?
As a solo, only 1m square. with a power point and a small table if possible.
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
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
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.
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.
Please, describe your act or business in on sentence:
I am a cabaret singer, with a bubbly personality and a bluesy powerful voice.
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.
