Exciting news

Haven’t written a blog for ages, so there’s quite a lot to say. Firstly we have just had our busiest August so far with thirteen gigs including some great gigs at Centotre restaurant in Edinburgh as part of the Fringe Festival. Thanks to Victor & Lara for making their “Secret Opera Society” nights such fun.

I have also recently put together the set and started rehearsals for the “Swinging Waiters”. This will include such songs as “New York, New York”, “Me and my shadow”, “Lady is a tramp”, “Come fly with me” and various other “Rat Pack” / crooner style songs. We will also be offering a set list including some Michael Buble songs so the set will be quite flexible. I also plan to add an audio player to the website so tracks will be able to be heard individually.

My final piece of news is probably the most exciting! SOS Singing Waiters will now offer a complete package for weddings and functions including the possibility of booking all of your wedding music requirements right here. I personally played in a wedding/ function band in the 80’s & early 90’s and quite a few of my guys have more recent experience. Given the high quality backing tracks now available and the fact that I have invested a lot in quality sound systems, we can now offer a full set of 3-4 hours with disco fill-in when we take a break. Like a lot of wedding/function bands now, we will only use backing tracks which allows much easier set-up but also gives a really professional sound. The beauty of this for you the client means that there is only one set-up time, therefore less disruption for you and the venue during turn-around for the evening reception. We will mainly perform songs from the 80’s right through to today, with some classic disco tunes including songs by Michael Jackson, Donna Summer, Chic, Rihanna, Lady Gaga and many more. ¬†You also get high class professional singers right through your whole event. I would appreciate some feed-back to the “enquiries@” tab if you find this an interesting proposal. There will be package prices depending on how much music you require. We can supply a variety of musicians including a string quartet and solo singers for during the service and then have the Singing or Swinging Waiters and ¬†finally the SOS band to take you and your guests right through your wedding or function.

As with the Singing Waiters act we will always try to be very competitive on price and look forward to providing our usual high quality service.

Cheers for now

Managing Director SOS Secret Opera Singers.
