Services From Craig Squance - Singing Waiter
Craig is a great, modern image performer and available for weddings, birthdays, anniversary’s and corporate Events across the UK and Nationwide. He is a fantastic performer who will make an impact on any occasion.
Craig is an experienced singer of over 27 years and his singing waiter act has been tried and tested over the years and guests of all ages can participate in all the numbers as Craig will let them know what to do as the act goes on.
His singing waiter act can be solo or he can be joined by other performers to really make an impact of any celebration.
Craig toured for 14 years with The band ‘Former members of Showaddywaddy The Teddy’s.
He also toured Denmark, Norway, South Africa, Ireland and the U.K with Gerry and the Pacemakers in a show about Gerry's life called Ferry Cross The Mersey.
Quotes sent for his established Singing Waiter Act are based on a 35 minute set of classic well known numbers for all ages to join in with under Craig’s instruction! He will encourage guests to wave napkins and arms, singalong a sing off and a conga! If your guests are up for some fun then a great time is had by all!
Craig will arrive to set up before guests come in the room and will change and be ready to welcome them into the room dressed the same as the venue staff.
If it is a wedding and the ceremony is in a different room or venue, set up will happen while the ceremony is is taking place in the room where the wedding breakfast will be eaten, if the ceremony is in the same room as the wedding breakfast then set up will be during the room turnaround.
Quotes are based on Craig arriving at these times ready to be blending in incognito for up to one hour during the wedding breakfast/meal.
The reveal is between mains being collected and before desserts come out, this is best as guests are seated at the table and not wandering off to different places in the venue like the bar or toilet!
Please have a look at the pictures and videos on his profile.

I hired Craig as a surprise for my daughter's wedding and cannot thank him enough, he really got the evening off to an amazing start.
Craig was a true professional and knows how to blend in and can definitely keep a secret ;)
Craig made the evening really go with a bang, everyone commented on how fabulous he was and how engaging he was with the whole room. Even those that took a while to warm up, said how much they enjoyed themselves!
I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to recommend Craig; we just need another event to get Craig to get the party started (promise it won't be quite as far to travel!).
Thank you so much for making the special day a little more special.

Craig was an absolute professional. From the moment he was booked he was friendly, responsive. The nig day itself was spectacular!
No one suspected a thing! When he started to song, wow! Our guests loved every minute and everyone was singing and getting involved. Energising, fun and a brilliant singer.
