What about your business are you most proud of?
As well as weddings and corporate events we have two theatre shows, 'Great Laides of Song' & 'One Enchanted Evening'. Seeling out the Sage in Gateshead, the Whitley Bay Playhouse and the Gala Theatre in Durham we're looking forward to our next one in 2018. We have also just released a charity single 'Sunset on the Tyne' proceeds to Prostate Cancer UK.
What makes a romantic first dance?
I think a romantic first dance is a one which means something to the couple. I've had a few people asking for suggestions as 'their song' wasn't appropriate. However, even if the lyrics say something else. If its 'your song' its 'your song'! We can also amend the lyrics slightly if needs be. Or of you haven't got a first dance pick something romantic but with a good beat so if you don't want to be up their just the two of you it will be a good enough song to get others to join in.
What is your number one floor-filler?
This is a tough one. It depends on the audience but I would say 'Don't Stop Me NOw' - Queen, 'Uptown Funk' - Bruno Mars or 'I wanna Dance With Somebody' Whitnet Houston
Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?
Jackson 5 - Or could have been in a romantic duo with Michael Bublè - Could call us Dublè !
