Bel Canto provide singers for all events and occasions whether you are looking for Singing Waiters to surprise your guests with during your wedding breakfast, an Opera singer to wow your friends and family with at a dinner party or simply some beautiful background Jazz singing to accompany your day.
We arrive at the venue at an earlier time before any guests have arrived so that we can set up our sound system, sound check and prepare for the performance later on.
Once we are all set up, we then blend in as waiting staff serving drinks and general waitress duties making sure we are seen as waitresses by your guests.
Depending on the style of your meal, be it a sit down 3 course meal or a buffet we stage a planned commotion usually between main course and dessert, the commotion builds and grows before our big reveal of bursting into song that will be the ultimate surprise to your guests.
We go on to do a 25 minute performance (this can be adapted, again depending on the style of your day) we like to have a preference of your music choices for our performance to make it personal to you, but just for an example our current set list looks like this;
Holding Out For A Hero
Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You
I’m A Believer
Build Me Up Buttercup
I Wanna Dance With Somebody
Don’t Stop Me Now
We Are the Champions
The ultimate goal is to have all your guests joining in, waving their napkins, singing the hits and getting into the party atmosphere.
Adding an Opera singer to your event can add a touch of sophistication and style, whether it's as you take those all important steps down the aisle on your wedding day or perhaps you would like an after dinner performance with a breathtaking show of music including Musical Theatre classics and Opera arias. Here are a few examples of songs for you to choose from;
O Mio Babbino Caro
O Sole Mio
The Flower Duet (2nd singer is needed)
Un Bel Di
You Raise Me Up
Time to Say Goodbye
Jazz and background singers;
Providing beautiful background music for weddings and events including wedding ceremonies / drinks receptions / birthdays and anniversaries. If you choose our 2 x singer package you can hear each song with beautiful harmonies added.
Choose music from pop to movie classics such as;
How Long Will I Love You
All of Me
A thousand years
Time after Time
What a wonderful world
I'll Never Love Again
The Impossible Dream
