Types of Singer for Hire
The first question is what type of singer for hire do you want to hire? You may have seen a singer previously and if you’re lucky be able to find their phone number just when you need it. Or you may not be able to find their contact details and need to start a search afresh.
Do you want an all rounder with a wide repertoire for a wedding or a Soul Singer or maybe a Rat Pack Singer or even an Opera Singer?
Once you have decided on the type of singer for hire, you will need to start sifting through websites, videos or song samples; to see who you like best. Maybe you will have to wait for CD’s through the post or for an e mail with song samples attached.
Next comes the singer’s repertoire, is it extensive or limited, can you choose some of the songs they sing, will they provide lighting and equipment, how long will they sing, what is their fee and are they available? Will they sound as good live as on their song samples, are they reliable, can they be contacted easily or must you wait several days or weeks?
This type of selection process will need to be repeated for each singer for hire and without specialist working knowledge of individual singers can be daunting.
