As a Wedding Singer:
George is a versatile wedding singer as he can provide music for various parts of your wedding day, from the ceremony to the wedding breakfast, drinks reception and evening sets. He can even provide a DJ set that will last through until midnight.
He will learn your first dance song as standard and will learn additional songs to this as an optional extra. He has a PA system suitable for an audience of up to 300 and is happy to use this for outside performances. George can also expand up to a duo or trio of musicians, with the trio being more of an upbeat party band, called Maslow – click here for more.
“My experience of using George to perform at our wedding was perfect from start to finish. Booking was simple and informal, yet efficient. I gave George free reign to sing whatever he deemed suitable and requested that he sang plenty of his own material too. On the day he was amazing, everything was spot on from his punctuality and appearance to his relaxed manner with everyone. Best of all was his performance! His song choices were inspired and left my wife and I with many very happy memories!”
