Craig is a great, modern image, male singer available for weddings, birthdays, anniversary’s and corporate Events across the UK, 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 - 40 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.

Craig was just brilliant!! The perfect entertainment after the meal to lift everyone back up again! Everyone was absolutely raving about him and couldn’t believe how good it was. Definitely the highlight of the wedding. So much fun but such a nice bloke too!
Thank you Craig!

Fitted us in on very short notice, made telephone contact and was extremely helpful, explained the act fully. Arrived well before the wedding breakfast and mingled with our guests as one of the waiters. When he did start, he was brilliant, engaging with all the guests and encouraging everyone to take part. Craig is worth every penny and we truly couldn’t have had a better experience.

Craig was superb. Had the room singing and dancing straight after a meal. Set up the rest of the night and brought lots of energy.
