Full Description
For fifteen-years now I've been making music and making memories - adding vintage sophistication to hundreds of wedding ceremonies, meals, drinks receptions and evening parties all over the UK. My elegant and informal act draws on a repertoire of more than 140 popular jazz standards from The Great American Songbook and beyond. The sound will surprise and delight your guests, but never overwhelm conversation. I have a range of flexible PA options which allow me to set up anywhere - inside or out - including a battery-powered amplifier for spots where mains electricity isn't within easy reach! Prices start at just £350 for up to 2-hours. Why not get in touch and have a chat about your day?

A perfect addition to our day
We had the pleasure of having Simon sing at our wedding last weekend and he was amazing! Everyone has commented on how wonderful he was and that he was a perfect addition to our day! This was our 3rd date after having to postpone from last year and Simon has been amazing throughout of the whole process, from when we first asked him to be part of our day, right up to the magical day it's self and stayed in contact with me the whole time. I couldn't recommend Simon enough! If you are thinking of booking him for your wedding, without any hesitation ... do it! ... I Promise you, you will be over the moon! Thank you so much Simon for everything you did for us.

One of the highlights of our wedding
We just wanted to say a huge thank-you for performing at our wedding. Our guests were hugely impressed by your talent and repertoire. Dancing to "Cheek to Cheek" in the bandstand is one of the highlights of our wedding and we are so grateful to you.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

The first time I sang at the Ritz Hotel was pretty memorable, but then every wedding will have moments that remind me why I'm so lucky too be doing this job full-time - spontaneous dancing or uncontrollable joy that spreads around the room.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Elegant, relaxed, sophisticated, timeless, fun.

What about your business are you most proud of?

That I offer an entirely personal experience. I handle every booking myself so you'll be dealing directly with me right from first contact to the final note I sing at your wedding!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

It's never too early to book. I hate having to disappoint couples because their date is already taken. If you love it, book it!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Once the couple knows what they want in terms of my performance on the day (how long I'll sing for, when and where etc) I quote a price for the booking. If they're happy with that I'll then email a contract for them to read the terms and conditions and they'll email their acceptance of the terms. A deposit of 50% is payable at that time to confirm the booking, but the balance doesn't need to be paid until the day of the wedding. Between then and the wedding I'm at the couple's disposal anytime if they have questions about repertoire or logistics. I encourage couples to choose what I sing on the day or they can just let me know their favourites and leave the rest to me. I'll be in touch again a week or so before the wedding to double check all the details, let them know when I'll be arriving at the venue and so forth, so that when the day itself arrives everything is in place and they have nothing to worry bout.

What is your number one floor-filler?

I'm not sure the term "floor filler" applies to any of the songs I sing! But numbers like "Let's Face the Music and Dance" and "Putting' on the Ritz" regularly get people on their feet - even during sit down meals!

Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?

It would have been wonderful to have been part of any of the big bands from the 1930s or 40s, but if Roy Fox, Ray Noble or Lew Stone were waiving the baton that would have been extra special.
