Chess was absolutely fantastic and was the talk of our wedding. I would not hesitate to recommend Chess for any event. Everybody, including the hotel staff, were blown away by Chess and how well she gauged the audience and got everyone up on their feet. Fabulous addition to our special day.

I booked Chess to sing at my daughter’s wedding as part of the church ceremony. Her performance was absolutely stunning! She sung Ave Maria, The Prayer and How Long Will I Love You, a mix of classical and modern and her voice was absolutely beautiful and her presentation spot on. Everyone, commented on her contribution and she really added a special aspect to our day.
She was very organised and professional too. I can’t thank her enough.

Chess was totally amazing in every way she has an incredible very powerful voice and knows how to project real passion and feeling into the lyrics. Chess knows how to work a venue during her act so that everyone there feels special and wants to join in. An added bonus is that Chess is also very flexible and happy to assist with tuning her act to suit the occasion which means you can personalise it as much as you want. I cannot rate her highly enough and an absolute pleasure and delight to work with. If you want your event to be truly memorable and an occasion that leaves people on a high with wonderful happy memories then go for Chess.

Chess was amazing at our wedding in Southampton! We arranged that it would be a complete surprise from my husband and only I would know. Chess communicated with the venue and myself throughout the process to arrange it all.
Our guests loved it and it certainly got them up on the feet after their main course! Her voice was great and her energy amazing!
Thank you Chess, love Tomos and Kieran.

  • What kind of events do you usually serve?

    I have performed at a vast amount of events and venues including weddings, private events, parties, UK tours, headlining as a guest act on cruise ships and so on.

  • How long do you play for?

    My standard sets are usually up to 1 hour, but I can sing for as long as you like (within reason!) and with a 15 minute break after each hour set.

  • Do you have your own PA and lighting?

    I have my own PA system but not lighting.

  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?

    Yes I have up to 5 million coverage of public liability insurance and yes my equipment is PAT tested. .

  • How much space do you require?

    Not a huge amount, I have two speakers on stands that can be spread out or compact, a floor monitor, a small mixing desk on a table and a mic stand.

  • My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?

    Please always ask because it may be that I know the song already even if it is not in my repertoire! However I am willing to learn any new songs at £15 per song as it will take time to learn and I will need to source a backing track.

  • How many breaks do you take? How long are they?

    For every hour set I perform I will require a minimum 15 minute break.
