Singing Waiters

The Singing Waiters offer the perfect surprise entertainment for your special event. Using classically trained singers and West End performers they perform an impressive range of music with a set-list designed to excite any audience.

Singing Waiters


Our talented team of Singing Waiters are the perfect surprise entertainment for your special event, from formal dining to weddings, birthdays and corporate hospitality. Your guests will be amazed and delighted when the ‘waiters’ suddenly break into song, hand out roses, and play guitars.

As Singing Waiters we avoid formal opera and dated backing tracks; preferring to offer unique performances of popular music played live on acoustic guitars. This light-hearted and entertaining take on the Singing Waiters combines music and laughter to great effect.

Our Singing Waiters greet your guests on arrival posing as real staff; dressed in the same uniform and working alongside the real waiters or catering team. Your guests will not suspect a thing, as we serve with witty charm and professionalism, getting to know guests and building rapport. Imagine the surprise when announcements are made and the ‘waiters’ dramatically break into song, playing guitars and entertaining the room. With amazing vocals, beautiful harmonies and guitar work; a larger than life performance is promised that will have your guests in stitches and singing along. Your guests will never see it coming and we promise to deliver a surprise to inject energy into your event – just when it’s needed.

The Singing Waiters are unique in the industry because we do not use backing tracks; all of our music is played live on acoustic guitars. Our song selection is incredibly varied and covers a broad range of musical styles and genres from classic ‘rat pack’ music through to the modern day – with everything in between. We promise that every song will be loved by your guests and they won’t be able to stop themselves from joining in.

The act can work either theatrically to the whole room or as a mix and mingle performance playing music around the tables.  For a performance to less than 100 guests – amplification is usually not required.  For a larger audience we can supply all the production necessary to amplify our act for an additional cost.

Event Outline

This performance is unique and as such can be tailored to suit any type of event or venue.  Typically the waiters would be in their roles waiting to greet guests as they arrive at the venue.  Working tirelessly through the event we feel that the music performance works best towards the end of any formal meal – over dessert and coffee.  Often the waiters will be with the guests for three to four hours before beginning the music performance.

The music performance is also very flexible around whatever is appropriate for the event.  Performance time is usually 25 to 30 minutes although when working as a mix and mingle act we can play for up to 60 minutes.

“You said ‘just trust us’, we did and you did an absolutely amazing job and totally rocked our wedding!”

Kate FranklandWedding

“You did an absolutely fantastic job! They went down an absolute storm and the team came back to the office buzzing. One person said it was the highlight of their career!! It really was wonderful. We had some very last minute changes too which the guys were very accommodating of. It has been a pleasure working with you and them.”

Sophie GregoryLloyds Banking

“The Singing Waiters really couldn’t have been better – perfectly witty, professional, charming and entertaining as waiters, musically talented and downright hilarious as singer-musicians. Our audience laughed ’til they cried, sung along (to my surprise) and called desperately for encores when the act had finished. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Singing Waiters to anyone looking for a fresh, entertaining and – importantly – LIVE – act: they make the backing-tracked alternatives look dated. Perfect”.

Claire JohnsonWedding
