Description

Price from: £150

'If you want to add a touch of class with talent I can highly recommend Annelise. My husband and I hired her to sing at our 60th birthday garden party and she was just what we hoped for. Annelise has a great voice for all those classic swing/jazz numbers , a good repertoire of songs, a warm, friendly personality and looked great. I was so glad we chose her because she helped create the kind of relaxed ambience I wanted as our guests mingled around chatting on a very hot Saturday afternoon. Would definitely hire again' Liz Stuart (Walberton, June 2019)

Annelise was brilliant! Everything was so good- contact, chats about our evening and what we were hoping for and Annelise certainly delivered all we’d wanted - a Christmas swing to get the party season started. Our guests were so appreciative so couldn’t have asked for more. Highly recommend

Annelise was perfect for our event, a welcoming drink on the terrace and an after dinner breakout. Really set the scene for a laid back enjoyable gathering. Annelise arrived on time set up with minimum fuss, was flexible and sang beautifully . Perfect.
