Undercover Artists - Singing Waiters
Winners of the “Best Musical Act 2019" in the West Midlands and National Finalists at the Wedding Industry Awards, Undercover Artists combine the talents of West End performers to bring you the best in entertainment for your event. Specialising in Classical/Crossover and Musical Theatre, each member of the cast has trodden the boards of the West End stage, appearing in shows such as Spamalot, Evita, Jersey Boys, Joseph & the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, Saturday Night Fever and Les Miserables to name but a few.
Usually performing for 30 minutes, Undercover Artists will integrate themselves into your special day, usually taking on the role of the wait staff or one of your guests. Then - when you least expect it - a commotion will happen and one of the staff will drop a large tray of cutlery - before bursting into song - much to the surprise of your guests. As each song is introduced another member of the cast will join in, and audience participation is definitely recommended!

- My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?As long as we have 4 weeks notice and there is a decent backing track available and the key is suitable for the singers we will be able to learn something new.
- How many breaks do you take? How long are they?During the day we help with basic duties such as arrival drinks/canapes, then throughout the meal we will clear empty glasses/pour wine/refill water jugs until the performance takes place during dessert. We will need a room to be able to go back and forth to during this time so that when there is nothing for us to do we can disappear for a few minutes.
As all our singers have performed in the West End, we have an extensive set list and can cover all genres of music from Classical, Musical Theatre, The Greatest Showman and modern chart music. Please ask us for a copy of our repertoire list and we'll be happy to send one over to you.
