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 30 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.

Everything we'd hoped for and more! Craig arrived really early and subtly entered himself into the day. He put on some fab subtle background music while we were eating dinner - in fact a few guests asked for the MP3/playlist of it!
Guests loved the surprise and he got the most reluctant ones up into the conga.
He made our wedding magical !

Craig kick started what turned out to be the best party ever. He got all the guests up and motivated to dance the night away. Near enough every attendee complimented the service. He had them up doing the love train through out the room, swinging napkins and singing their hearts out.
Thank you for our memorial singing waiter Craig, absolute 10/10.
