From the moment I made contact with Chess she was bubbly, professional and very helpful. She has a beautiful voice and was an amazing singing waitress. She was definitely the highlight of my party and I cannot recommend her and her service enough.

I hired Chess as a surprise singing waitress at my wedding (for my wife and guests) Chess was amazing. she owned the room, got everyone up and dancing and singing. It was everything that I wanted and more. Everyone commented on how good she was and what a good feeling she created from her performance.

Chess Taylor was absolutely amazing from the moment I booked her. Communication whenever I was unsure on something and all information I needed.
Her set was amazing, everyone was up dancing and singing. Every single person enjoyed it. She even took the time to learn the Welsh national anthem for me. Chess is the best singer, the most loveliest person and above all she has created memories for us for a lifetime. We are eternally grateful

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.
