Why You Should Hire a Solo Wedding Singer and Guitarist

Written by    Last updated: September 15, 2016

Weddings are brought to life by music. A solemn ceremony becomes a joyous occasion when the music starts, and you don’t have to hire a live band. A solo wedding singer and guitarist will provide ideal entertainment for both your ceremony and reception. 

The Solo Wedding Singer and Guitarist

One of the benefits of booking a solo wedding singer and guitarist is, quite simply, that it can cost a lot less than paying a whole band for their time and skill. The entertainment however, can be just as good, as you can see.

Instrumental Music and Classical Guitar

If you would like music played at your wedding but not a singer for the reception, then a solo musician can be the best option. An acoustic classical guitarist will add a lively feel to your wedding while maintaining a background music level.

Barry Martin is a professional singer, songwriter, guitarist and performer with over 30 years’ experience. Based in the south east, he plays a mix of acoustic-vocal songs and classical guitar solos.

Music For Your Wedding Ceremony

A solo singer can perform a beautiful rendition of your favourite song or another romantic classic to entertain your guests while you sign the register or have your wedding photos taken.

Music For Your Evening Reception

For your evening reception he can bring on the band – in the form of special backing tracks so it will sound like you have hired a whole band with a mixture of music spanning the past five decades. To ensure seamless entertainment all evening, he plays party mixed music in between live sets, complete with LED lighting for a full effect.

Barry’s repertoire includes all your favourite songs, including well-known hits by Elvis Presley, The Beatles and Van Morrison, plus the very romantic Angels by Robbie Williams and more modern songs by Scissor Sisters, Take That and Lily Allen. He also does several Swing numbers including Frank Sinatra’s immortal hits That’s Life and Fly Me to the Moon.
