Hi Sara, I know that over a month has gone by but we just wanted to say a very big thank you for the important part you played at our wedding ceremony and reception. Your performance was absolutely wonderful and we were thrilled by your singing. Everyone has commented how good you were, and of course Louisa’s accompaniment was first class. It was a perfect day in many ways, and thank you again for making it so special. Kindest regards

Many thanks, once again and please pass on my appreciation to your colleagues too 🙂 Hope your journey back was ok! Kind regards,

“Greetings, I would like to thank you and your wonderful singers for adding a very special piece to my daughter’s wedding day. Everyone thought you were Totally ‘Amazing’ and thoroughly enjoyed your performance. And I use the word performance deliberately as you provided more than just a stunning set of voices with a very suitable and well received repertoire. The way you interacted with the guests was excellent. The photographer managed to capture some images of draw-dropped faces as the entertainment began – a real surprise that truly stunned our guests. Later, as I performed my duties, visiting each table of guests in turn, I heard repeated comments – ‘amazing voices’, ‘wonderful’, ‘fabulous surprise’. Many, many thanks for a wonderful performance and please pass on our thanks and admiration to each and every one of your superb quartet. If anyone ever has any doubts or is ‘sitting on the fence’ about using your services feel free to put them in touch with me, as I would recommend they sign you while they have the chance! With much appreciation and regards”

“Dear Sara, What a tour de force! I have been basking in reflected glory from the all the praise that has flowed in following your performance last night. You and Richard sang beautifully and we felt honoured to have such accomplished and talented singers performing for us in the Jubilee Hall, Bratton. The choice of songs was spot on and you were absolutely right in your recommendations. The artifice worked perfectly and nobody twigged to the fact that you weren’t real waiters. Richard’s spectacular and ill fated entrance was a terrific way to start and it wasn’t until the first bars of Brindisi that people realised you weren’t actually waiters. And what a fantastic duo of non-waiters you were! The songs were all perfectly executed and I think that you made our local Master of The House’s day as well as the two generals. Thank you so much for travelling to Bratton, for safeguarding the secret so well and for a truly magical musical delight. When we were clearing up this morning, your performance was the main topic of conversation. It was very similar last night and the ‘buzz’ that you left behind was palpable. It would be true to say that everyone was captivated by the magic of it all…”

A BIG thank you to you, Louisa and Christopher for your performance at Fortnums. The feedback I have received has been very positive. I caught up with Roddy when he was in the office today and he said you were all fabulous – better than ever!!! I cannot thank you enough for making everything run so smoothly and it is great knowing that I can just leave the entertainment in your very capable hands. Have a wonderful Christmas and no doubt I will be in touch again in the New Year once I start thinking about Christmas 2014!!

Dear Sara, It was lovely to meet you and Russell yesterday. Thank you so much for your wonderful singing which was exactly what we had hoped and wished for. All our guests were extremely complementary about your performance and we couldn’t have wished for a better outcome. We really appreciate your efforts on our behalf and you certainly helped our “do” to go so well. With many thanks, Lindsey and Alan (who enjoyed his dance with you) Lewis

Sara and I just wanted to say thank you again. It doesn’t seem good enough for all you did and for how hard you worked. Without you I don’t think we would have had as many ‘wows’ as we have – Thank you. It is an overused word I know but you were simply magical and your voices enchanting and we know that our guests and all of them were enchanted and some, moved to tears! We wish you the best and may be when we find a reason to, Norfolk will be a place you would be happy to come to!

Just to say thanks for organising the singing waiters – again they were absolutely amazing and I think everyone enjoyed their very well thought out performance – it hit just the right spot. Do please pass on my huge thanks to Sara and the boys – they were fabulous. One attendee commented to me how superb they were and how the event was “much better” than last year’s. That is in no small part, due to Sara and Co. Thank you so much and no doubt we will be in touch soon!!! Best regards

Hi Stephen, Just back from honeymoon and a big thank you to you !! We have not stopped hearing people praising you for the fantastic show you put on, it made the day complete. Rest assured you’ll have not heard the last of me and ‘mon famille’ as I’m sure we’ll be having anniversaries aplenty in the coming years.

The Fabulous Singing Waiters were very funny and entertaining. They were lovely people and very polite, friendly and professional. The songs choices were excellent and all of our wedding guests enjoyed them as an act and found them very entertaining. They all commented on what a brilliant idea it was to have them. The singing waiters interacted with our wedding guests and thoroughly entertained everyone. I requested that a certain song was sung and they gladly did this for me. Overall very happy with them, would recommend them to all our friends and family and would gladly hire them again.

Dear Stephen, Just wanted to say thank you so much for performing at our wedding on 5 November. We have had so many comments about how fantastic you were, and most people think it was the best point of the day (including my mother… and, even worse, my husband!) We also had a lot of comments from guests that they were ready to have words with the RAC for allowing its staff to behave like that, so the surprise certainly worked! My husband was completely blown away by it, and it certainly made the evening. Thanks again,

I wanted to thank you so much for your efforts singing at our party 40th wedding anniversary party last Saturday. Besides worrying about the weather and (self) catering, we were a bit nervous about how the singing and music would work out. Any anxieties we had were quickly dispelled and you delivered exactly as we hoped, with fantastic singing that impressed all 120 of us (age range 81 down to three). It was exactly what we wanted and added greatly to the occasion. Only one person said to me that they'd seen singing waiters before so it was quite novel in these rural parts!

Where do I begin, I cannot start to tell you how delighted we all were with your performance on Saturday, it was brilliant and enjoyed by us all. As you know none of the guests knew anything about it so it was interesting watching their faces when Russell first started to sing, trying to keep a low profile and possibly hoping he would go away. Then the dawn of realisation was that this man could really sing. The couple on our table said, I think he should give up his day job, still not realising what was happening. We have had so many guests who know they may not remember what they had to eat that night in a few years time, but will certainly remember your performance. We are so grateful to you for making our Birthday celebration so memorable for so many people. I was extremely impressed by your Professionalism throughout the process from first point of contact to an outstanding delivery. I wish you well with your forthcoming events. Kind regards, Tim

“Dear Catherine, What can I say……..you and Russell were amazing! I have had so many compliments regarding your performance at our recent Charity Dinner. Thank you both so much. Not only were your voices superb but the element of surprise and the little touches of comedy were just right and everyone who was there thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Just to let you know that we went on to raise £4770 for Breast Cancer Care which was wonderful. Thank you both again I will be delighted to recommend Hartley Voices to anyone looking for that touch of class. Kind regards” – Sue (Soprano & Tenor Singing Waiters Duo-Charity Dinner, Nailcote Hall Hotel, Warwickshire)

“Dear Lisa, I have just been watching the video which seems to capture it all very well. Your performance was most musical and sensitive and very well received and I am grateful to all the soloists for putting on such a great show. Thanks also to Sara for arranging everything and singing so beautifully as well. I look forward to opportunities to work with you again in the future. All the very best” – Bob (Soloists-Verdi Requiem Performance, Birmingham Symphony Hall)

“Hello Sara, Beautiful, Brilliant, Lovely, Wonderful, Awesome, just a few of the words used to describe your and Luisa’s performance on Thursday. Mine, Perfect. It was exactly as I would have wished it to be. Not too happy, not too sad, but perfomed with feeling, love and thought. Even the Vicar complimented us on a Perfect Befitting Service for a well loved Mum. I understand the congregation was listening to Luisa playing whilst waiting our arrival and thoroughly enjoyed it even if it was such a sad occasion. The Vicar said it filled the church beautifully. It is a beautiful building. Thank you so very much – the only thing missing was our Mum. If only we had thought about organising something like this for one of her Birthdays it would have been even more perfect – she would have loved it. Please convey our sincere thanks to Luisa and once again many many thanks to you. May we wish you both and your families every happiness in 2011. Kindest regards,” – Anne and Family (Soprano & Harp Duo-Funeral Service, Faversham, Kent)

Thank you so much for braving the snow – we really, really appreciated it. I’m sorry I didn’t get a chance to actually meet you – it all went a bit busy just after the ceremony! You looked fantastic and I think you have a brilliant job – singing in awesome costumes! When the photos start coming through we’ll send you some.

Many people came up to us afterwards to say how much they had enjoyed your singing – as I think must have been evident to you at the event.

We, ouselves, are constantly refering to the looks of wonder and hapiness on the faces of our guests when you were performing. The way you dramatised the pieces, and interacted with the guests was superb, and it made our day!!!! Thank you so much! We so much enjoyed your performance that if you have made a CD of your repertoire, we’d love to buy one, as we’d love to hear your voices again. It would be a very special memento of our wedding. Very best wishes” – Martin and Christine (AKA A Cappella Singing Waiters Quartet-Wedding Dinner, Bickleigh Castle, Devon)

“Hi Sara, You were absolutely brilliant, thank you so much. I really enjoyed hearing you sing. What an amazing voice, wow. It really made the ceremony special. I’m just sorry I missed hearing you sing the songs whilst the guests were seated. The Flower Duet (solo!), Tra Bo Dau and the Verdi were all fantastic. Everyone was amazed at your voice. Sorry I didn’t get to chat to you but as you’d predicted, it was never on the cards! I really appreciate your patience and advice in choosing the songs. I like to get things just right, and it was, it was perfect. Regards,” – Gail (Soprano Soloist-Wedding Ceremony, Caledonian Club, London)

“Sara, On behalf of Janine and myself, I would like to say thank you for your amazing performance on Saturday. You far exceeded both our expectation in terms of the quality of the performance and also the interaction you had with the guests and I know our guests had a similarly good impression. Without your ‘hand-on’ approach the evening would have been much less enjoyable for many guests, especially my father, who has probably not danced to anything so energetically since the 70s! We would not hesitate to recommend to our friends and family. Thanks again,” – Rob and Janine (Solo Soprano Performance-Wedding Dinner, Intercontinental Hotel, London)

The choir also added so much to the hymns and to the general atmosphere. Please pass on our thanks to everyone concerned. With kind regards, Emma. p.s. your voice in particular was spectacularly beautiful. My Godfather is a particular fan of sopranos and he said that he thought your voice had a rare and special quality.

“Hi Sara, I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for your help with arranging the contract for Russell to sing with us in ‘The Sorcerer’. The show was a great success and we were very pleased with Russell’s performance. The leading tenor in G&S can sometimes be a rather ‘cardboard cutout’ stereotype, but, luckily our director, Alistair Donkin, wanted him played as an ‘upper class twit of the year’…and Russell rose to the challenge!! He was a pleasure to work with, and added a great deal to our show. Thank you again.” – Alan (Tenor Performance Contract, Gilbert & Sullivan Opera, Courtyard Theatre, Hereford)

We have had many requests from our friends for your details and I sincerely hope you will deservingly secure further bookings after today. I would recommend you highly and I have been very impressed with the personal service you gave being so understanding and patient in finalising the programme for us, so that experiences like this come out of the corporate realm and make a 70 year old man and his friends very very happy.

Once again many thanks and I sincerely hope that that we will meet again in the future.” – Malcolm & Janine (AKA Singing Waiters Quartet-Wedding Ceremony, Dinner and Reception, Isle of Man)

“Cath, I just wanted to thank you so much again for your singing at our wedding. I am SO delighted that I found you and decided to ask you to sing – I can’t bear to think that it was all done at the last minute and that we might not have had you! The ambience you created was unforgettable, really. You struck exactly the right note. Throughout the reception, more people asked me where I found you than anything else! Some of the most gratifying comments were from of the “tougher” contingent of our guests – namely some of the older men from Scarborough – who are usually very “matter of fact” about things. They all said they had lumps in their throats and were barely keeping it together!! You added to my personal memories of the day so much. I loved your choice of Casta Diva to walk into – it really gave grand status to the occasion and made me feel elegant and beautiful! I don’t think I need to tell you how successful O Mio Babbino Caro went – my Dad was obviously in pieces. He loves opera and the two of us have shared many happy memories attending operas together, so this song will now have added meaning for us. Habanera was great and the “audience” in the other room said they saw how much I was enjoying it, even through the TV screen. You turned the (civil) ceremony from something I felt was going to be an anti-climax into the highlight of my day – which if I think about it, is really how it ought to be. Many thanks again!” – Sophie(Soprano Soloist, Civil Ceremony-Kew Gardens, London)

“I would just like to say thank you for organising Catherine to sing at our wedding in November. The whole day was fantastic and the drinks reception was brought alive by Catherine and Andy’s wonderful music. Catherine was very accommodating with the repertoire of songs that we wanted and sang them beautifully. It made such a difference to have someone who was not only organised and professional but also sympathetic to the importance of the event for Lucy and I. We would not hesitate to recommend Hartley Voices to anyone looking for wonderful performers for an event. Thanks again” – Will (Soprano and Pianist-Wedding-London)

“I just wanted to drop you an email to say how fantastic the guys from the barbershop were on Monday. They sounded absolutely fantastic and helped us to get a number of the broadcast media interested while were stood outside the England cricket team’s hotel, even being filmed for BBC News 24 and ITN! They were enthusiastic about getting involved as much as possible in what we were doing and even got stuck in to speaking to the public and posing for some great pictures with the photographer. Many thanks.” – Gemma (AKA Barbershop-PR Campaign- Central London)

“I just wanted to let you know that Russell was a huge success on Sunday! Our friends have since told us they have not stopped talking about the evening to other people. Russell threw himself perfectly into the role of waiter and we managed to keep everything secret until the very last minute, then our friends were just so surprised when he started to sing. He performed our requested songs brilliantly – and entertained us really well. Thank you both so much again for making our dinner party so memorable. I would have no hesitation in recommending Russell to anyone else considering hiring him! Wishing you both the very best,” – Judy (Singing Waiter -Dinner Party-Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands)

I cannot begin to thank you and Catherine enough for the shear pleasure that it brought to Ros’s birthday celebrations and to say how much everyone enjoyed it. Ros is still on “cloud nine” and will, I think , be there for some time to come. Both of you evoked so much feeling and emotion but added a lot of fun and laughter by the way in which you involved some of us in the performance. This was just so perfect. Thank you with all my heart.”
– Russ (Soprano Duo-Birthday Party-Gravesend, Kent)

“Just to say that the Singing Waiters were perfect last night. Everyone was taken by surprise and loved it. Our Chief Exec was particularly touched and asked me to pass on his grateful thanks. In usual circumstances he would say something but I think he was rather overcome. So please say that we thought they were wonderful. I don’t know if you kept the lyrics to A Few of My Favourite Things, but he would love to have a copy. Many thanks for all your help with this. I shall certainly recommend you to anyone else who is looking for entertainers – it all went so smoothly.” – Mary-Lou (Singing Waiters Quartet-Corporate Awards Dinner-London)

“The whole day was fantastic and the drinks reception was brought alive by Catherine and Andy’s wonderful music! Catherine was very accomodating with the repertoire of songs that we wanted and sang them beautifully. It made such a difference to have someone who was not only organised and professional but also sympathetic to the importance of the event for Lucy and I. We would not hesitate to recommend Hartley Voices and Catherine Fish to anyone looking for wonderful performers for an event. Thanks again” – Will (Jazz Singer & Pianist, Wedding Reception-London)

“I wanted to drop you a note to pass to our wonderful singers from last weekend. Their voices were amazing and they mixed in so professionally with our waiting staff at the beginning that no one was any the wiser. Until they started singing! It was truly magnificant. I will never forget the looks on my friends faces when Russell started singing – they couldn’t believe it. It was just the right balance of guests vs. singers and everyone was completely bowled over. At one point I think more than half were in tears at the beautiful songs from Phantom of the Opera. I just can’t thank you enough. Even the cook and the man who owned the house want your details for future bookings. I will definitely be in touch again when the opportunity arises to book singers. Until then please pass on my heartfelt thanks to both singers – they really made the weekend” – Catherine (Singing Waiters Duo-Private Party-Warwickshire)

Was a great show.” – Andrew (Bespoke ‘Singing Nuns…men’-Best Man’s Speech-Buxted, East Sussex)

There were over 40 people from Germany, France, Canada, etc. – I think people were surprised and touched. I received many many positive comments. Ted and Richard were very friendly and I really appreciated that given that it was a rather cozy event. Thank you so much for your help!” – Sophia (Tenor Soloist with Pianist-Birthday Party-London)
