The answer to that is yes! Steve carries a range of background music, which he is happy to play when he is not performing. This can be dinner style jazz music. He also has lively dance and party music for later in the evening.
The answer to that is yes! Steve knows how important the first dance is to the Bride and Groom. Having Steve sing their first dance will make it even more magical. If it is a standard song there is no problem whatsoever. In the event that the song is maybe a little less well known, or say, an album track, then getting the backing track for the song can prove a little more difficult.
Steve carries such a vast repetoire of music. He will try as and where possible to incorporate any requests. If he doesn't have that specific song, he will usually have something similar which he will be happy to sing.
The answer to that is yes! Steve frequently works with a disco, and they can really compliment each other on what music they cover. He has a good working relationship with many leading DJ's, so if you haven't booked one already, he will be happy to recommend, or book one for you.
The answer to that is no! Unlike many vocalists and bands, Steve will not ask you for a deposit. Instead, when you are happy to confirm your booking, Steve will email or send you a confirmation of the booking. There is one for the client, and one to be signed and sent back to Steve.
It really is down to the personal preference of the couple. Steve can be booked to sing swing and rat pack immediately after your wedding ceremony and during your wedding breakfast only, if that is your wish. He can also be booked to sing throughout the wedding breakfast and early evening as additional guests arrive. This generally takes it up to the time of the buffet - Steve is happy to liaise with the venue wedding co-ordinator to make sure the timing is exact. There are those couples who prefer entertainment in the evening only, where again Steve would perform a rat pack and swing set first of all. This would be followed by a short break, and then a more lively spot to start the party. This works particularly well if a disco is booked for later in the evening. At all times, Steve is happy to work with the venue to make sure the cutting of the cake, speeches and photograph's run smoothly alongside your wedding entertainment.
Steve frequently gets asked for a Rat Pack, Swing or Jazz set. This is very popular for Weddings, and many couples like this during the Wedding breakfast, or early evening. It creates a nice atmosphere as guests arrive. Steve can cover Rat Pack classics from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr and Bobby Darin, right through to modern day "crooners" such as Michael Bublé. Whilst many people enjoy Rat Pack and Swing, naturally it isn't to everyone's taste........ This being the case, Steve can, and does sing everything from artistes as diverse as John Legend, Journey, George Ezra, Take that, Olly Murs, Van Morrison, Queen, Jackie Wilson, Stevie Wonder, Lionel Ritchie right through to the Drifters and many more
The answer to that is yes! Naturally, as you would expect, there may be a small additional cost involved to cover travel. Steve has entertained at weddings in virtually every area of the UK. Distance really is no object.
