The Last Day At Work For A Chef / A Hotel Manager
If your event is at a hotel, another popular scenario is the Chef’s last day at work. This works well with two performers as they bounce off of one another. The ‘hotel manager’, who has been overseeing the day’s events, announces to the guests that it is the Head Chef’s last day at the hotel. He presents him/her with a farewell gift and gives him/her the microphone to make a speech. The embarrassed Chef begins to talk…then eventually gives the guests a performance to remember! The hotel manager returns, annoyed that his chef is taking over the event, so he regains control…
A Wedding/Event Guest
This scenario particularly surprises guests…our actors pretend to be an old family friend/ business partner and they join in the festivities along with the other guests. People get to know this fictional character and enjoy chatting with them over dinner. All of a sudden, this ‘old friend’ turns into a leading West End performer!
These scenarios are carefully thought out and plotted but always end with the best reactions from your guests! If you are interested in these scenarios or have an idea of your own, please ring us for a chat about how we can thrill your guests.
Well what can we say. Gavin and his team put on an amazing show when they performed at our wedding. Everyone at our wedding could not stop talking about how good they were and they really did make our day. Gavin from start to finish was first class. He was incredibly professional, supportive and did everything he could to make our day extra special. We looked at so many other surprise, acting, singing waiters on YouTube before we booked Gavin and they did not compare to "The singing waiter masters”. This is because they are: 1. Value for money 2. Use a professional sound technician which other companies do not always use. 3. Professional west end singers. Their voices blow you away. 4. Professional actors or actresses who have performed in west end productions. 5. Able to sing opera, west end classics and pop songs to get your guests going. 6. Interact with your guests from the word go. This includes being a waiter during the day and singer by the evening dinner. 7. They don't lower the tone of the wedding. We were worried wedding singing waiters might cheapen the day but they did the opposite. If you are looking for something a bit different and want to get the party started do not hesitate to book The Singing waiter masters. You will not be disappointed. I wish Gavin and his team all the best in the future and thanks again for the amazing memories. Not just for my husband and I but for all the guests.
Thanks so much to Gavin for helping me surprise my husband on our wedding day. All our guests were so shocked and got involved right from the off. The singers were AMAZING. It was so lovely to be able to plan a personal set. Would highly recommend
I don't even know how to write a review that truly illustrates just how amazing these guys are!! We had the singing waiters for our wedding day and I can hand on heart say it MADE our wedding! It was 100% the best thing we spent money on and was thoroughly enjoyed by every single one of our guests; old or young they cater to everyone! Gavin and team did an outstanding job and get all our guests dancing, singing and having the best time after our wedding breakfast! The way they integrated themselves as staff worked so well, the pure shock on people's faces when Pavel fell over was priceless! Fantastic job and we can't thank you and recommend you enough to everyone!!
Ohhh my god just wow!!! The best wedding entertainment ever. I could not recommend these people enough, brilliant voices that at times had me in tears. I really did not expect this and was completely blown away by you all. 5 star 5 star 5 star!!
I wasn’t sure what to expect before I saw the Singing Waiter Masters – and then I was blown away. Masters of entertainment. Masters of surprise. This is high class, unique wedding entertainment from leading West End actors, performers and opera singers. Magical from start to finish and distinctly different to anything else, they serve up a world class act to ensure a truly unforgettable wedding.
Absolutely brilliant jaw dropping performances from who the guests thought were waiters. It certainly went down well with everybody standing and cheering at the end of a wonderful routine
Absolutely incredible! Totally surpassed expectations and was the talk of the wedding! Everyone was blown away and just loved it!
Five stars isn’t even enough! The Singing Waiter Masters are absolutely amazing. They blended in so well with the waiting staff and took the room by storm. They are INCREDIBLE singers and had everyone out of their seats dancing. I cannot thank you enough for creating these great memories for us xx
There are no words to describe Gavin and his Singing Waiter Masters. The entrance was spectacular making all the guests gasp (including me and I knew what was happening!). The songs and vocals were phenomenal, the singers worked the room with everyone rocking to the music. The atmosphere created by you all was electric and set the tone for the rest of the evening. Right up to the last verse of Nessum Dorma you blew everyone away. No other words, other than to say, "simply fantastic"! We can't thank you enough.

OMG..Where do I even start. As a wedding photographer I came across tons of wedding entertainers and I have to admit many are really good, however I have to admit after being in the wedding industry for a while there are not many acts which will take my breath away !! When I found out about "another singing waiter" performing at one of my recent weddings I though..well it will be one of those predictable shows. I realised how wrong I was as soon as Gavin opened his mount and completely took over the reception room. I have never seen anything like that, him and his other singer completely transformed the room into a West End Show .. and I mean it. Until then I wouldn't ever believe this is possible. I found out later that Gavin and all the other singers are actually proper west end singing professionals!! They even had their own sound technician to achieve that unique theatrical quality of sound. Whoever hires those guys is not hiring a "singing waiters" they are hiring The West End show right in the middle of their wedding reception!! Well done guys..I can't wait to see you again !!

I can’t put into words how amazing they were they really where incredible. The acting was faultless and it took my breathe away even though I knew about them I still got caught out . Their voices were stunning and sent shivers down my spine . Can’t put into words how amazing these guys are. Amazing actors and singers but also amazing people . Would recommend them 100% Thank guys really appreciated you guys making it specail for Nicky and Dave x
OMG! My day could not have gone better. Gavin and his team were fabulous! It was a lot of work hiding it from my husband and all of the guests but he made it work. Constantly kept in touch and really worked the Disney theme I asked for. All of them did such a good job and everyone loved it. They were great with the kids who were up and dancing through all of the Disney songs and they got my husband's uncle (who I have been told NEVER gets up to dance) up and joining in! I want to do it all again just to have them back. So worth every penny and they worked so well to mingle as staff before surprising everyone. To be honest the videos do not do then justice- they are 10 times better in person. If you have doubts - forget it, hire them and you will not regret it for a second!!!! Thank you for making my day brilliant xx
They were amazing, totally surpassed all expectations!! I booked them for my wedding and I’ve had so much guest feedback saying how they were the best part of the day! The venue have even said that they’ve seen lots of waiter acts and they were the best! I managed to keep the act a surprise from everyone and the look on my new husbands face and all of my guests was priceless! Everyone loved ‘Pawel’ the waiter and were so concerned when he fell over! Then absolutely blown away and in some cases moved to tears by the beautiful voices!! Highly recommended, I’m trying to think of another occasion where I can book them already!!!
What can I say! Gavin and the team were simply amazing! They surpassed our expectations in every way. Our guests were in love with ‘Pawel’ and the bridesmaids were ready to take him home! We have goosebumps watching back the video from your performance which was full of fun and laughter! We can not thank you enough for making our wedding day something we will never forget! Friends and family have been asking where we found you! 100% 5 star! Much love Mr & Mrs Crouch xx
We booked The Singing Waiter Masters for our silver wedding party at Latimer Estate Hotel and didn't tell a sole. It was hard keeping the secret but the delight and surprise it gave everyone was so worth it. Gavin and both the other singers absolutely wowed everyone. It was an outstanding performance and we had an incredible party. It made our evening very special indeed. They were superb!
Absolutely amazing! Everyone of our guests have said how fantastic their performance was. From start to end they were great. Friends and family were totally fooled by the polish waiter, having had many conversations with guests and teaching him the language, they were stunned by his act. And when the show started at breakfast, did he get everyone's attention, there was genuine concern for him as he fell. They gave our wedding the wow factor, putting everyone in a great mood as they got our guests involved, the atmosphere was buzzing. I can't thank them enough, I know I struggled to justify the expense but worth every penny. Hopefully will be seeing them again soon as a cousin has asked if we mind them booking up for their wedding.
I booked this as a surprise for my sister (bride) and Ryan, her now husband. Absolutely blown away. Even though I knew “pawel” was Gavin, I was still shocked when the act began!! He made such an effort with the guests before the singing that he was providing entertainment during the whole day. Worth every penny, the guests couldn’t stop talking about it and neither could the bride and groom!! It adds something so special to the day, we are all so happy! Thank you!!
My mother and sister booked The Singing Waiter Masters as a surprise for Ryan and I. This was beyond magical, we loved every second. All of our guests absolutely loved it, and are still talking about it days later. Wonderful, amazing voices, very convincing acting, brings shivers to your body and tears to your eyes! Thank you so much for making our day so perfect, and memories we will never forget!
I, along with my daughter, the bride to be, deliberated for a while over whether to book The Singing Waiter Masters to perform at her wedding. It was the best decision we made! Worth every penny and more! Gavin, from start to finish, was a joy to deal with, an extremely lovely person. Not many can claim to have had West End performers at their wedding, it was spine tingling! This was no karaoke! It was absolutely fabulous, from beginning to end. A total surprise to all the guests, as well as the groom and the father of the bride. To say that the performance was enchanting is an understatement. Beforehand, Gavin, as a Polish waiter, engaged, for hours, with all our guests, whilst serving them canapés, absolutely nobody guessed he was actually an actor. Numerous guests reported to me afterwards that he was totally convincing, talking of his family and home back in Poland etc. Maria, who has played Christine, in Phantom, in the West End, acted as Master of Ceremonies, once again, nobody suspected and what a beautiful voice! The surprise performance, which took everybody by surprise, even my daughter and I, was mind blowing. The whole room was buzzing afterwards and guests and family have not stopped talking about it since. We are all obsessed with watching and re-watching the video footage. From young to the old, all got involved, laughter, singing and tears of joy ensued and the memories will never die. 'Masters' they are! Any expectations that we had were totally surpassed. We would not hesitate to recommend and indeed already have! Mother of the bride, Susan Taylor
Wow where to begin?! We own a wedding venue and have been looking forward to this ever since the bride said she had booked singing waiters and I was not disappointed. Firstly very friendly people who blended in well as part of our bar staff mixing with guests. The act it’s self was breathtaking, they had everyone on their feet and took everyone by surprise. Will definitely be recommending this to future brides and may even book them myself for future events. Highly recommend !!!!
5* we hired The Singing Waiter Masters for our wedding. We heard they were amazing running up to our wedding we saw in an advert that Gavin was at a wedding fair we went along to book him. From the moment we met Gavin he had us in stitches and was very passionate about making our day special. We had many conversations with Gavin, even a strange request to fall over my sister's wheelchair. Nothing was too much trouble. Gavin pulled it off!! Serving our guest with no one knowing to strange conversations Gavin was having as Pablo didn’t know what they was talking about, to the act I had been waiting for and WOW the look on everyone’s face was a picture to Gavin and his colleague singing with there amazing voices. Everyone stood on chairs singing, napkins be waved in the air, to a standing ovation on every song.. Gavin even took time at the end to talk to us all. You were AMAZING and we can’t not thank you enough. Everyone still talks about our wedding as the best one they have ever been to!
We had Gavin and his team as a surprise for our wedding! Surprise was defiantly the word great acting and then the show was amazing everyone dancing,cheering singing! Made my wife feel like she was part of a musical which has always been one of her dreams!! Everyone is talking about how amazing it was!! I couldn’t recommend Gavin and his team enough they where fantastic and as soon as I can find another event to have them I would defiantly be booking again!! Thanks guys for making our day even more special!!
As massive West End theatre fans, we won’t forget the moment Gavin sang the first words to the first song, we sat there in total shock. He was beyond what we could have hoped for, by the time he got to the Phantom of the Opera song we were wanting him to come and be lead man in our favourite shows in the West End! His colleague Shelley was equally as fantastic and they interacted brilliantly together, complementing vocally and adding comedy to the act, they even learnt (and totally aced) a song especially for us to close out the show. But prior to the first song, being in on the 'joke' as we watched Gavin interact with our guests all day was absolutely fantastic, he received reactions ranging from shock, to mild disgust, to pure amusement and affection! Every guest we spoke to had a story to tell about their interaction with Gavin. And Shelley his partner even had us fooled, we had NO idea she wasn't an Events Organiser until she burst into song!! The Singing Waiter Masters were a show stopper for our wedding day, everyone will remember the ceremony (we hope) and the fact we got married. They may remember the food and they’ll know there was a lot of booze. But we can say with complete confidence that they will definitely remember Gavin and his team as one of the true highlights of the most beautiful day. Absolutely zero hesitation in recommending them, when we finally met Gavin in person after 12 months since booking of waiting for our Wedding, it was like greeting an old friend, what more could you want!

I recently photographed a wedding at The Ned in London and the couple had booked the Singing Waiter Masters for their end of meal entertainment. I knew what was going to happen, but nothing could prepare me for what did. it was the most exciting, uplifting, strangely emotional and exhilarating piece of wedding theatre I have ever had the good fortune to witness. it also provided me with the most striking wedding breakfast sequence of photos I have ever taken. They were amazing and I look forward to working with them again in the future. Thanks Gavin and the team!

We recently had the singing waiter masters at our wedding and I booked them as a surprise for my now husband!! I honestly can’t thank them enough for their amazing show!! All our guests loved them and thought it was a brilliant surprise!! They performed a brilliant show and I am so grateful for everything they did to make our wedding the best ever!!!
Gavin and his crew made our daughters wedding spectacular. Their voices are superb, strong, Powerful and exceptional, they made every song they sang their own. Every single guest Was overwhelmed at how brilliant they were. I can highly recommend their service, they literally Made the wedding day and every single guest told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to!
Gavin and his team were absolutely amazing!!! They were booked as a special surprise by my parents, my bride and I - nor any of the other guests - had a clue what was about to happen. From start to end they were incredible, when my wife and I first walked into the venue for our wedding breakfast we were met by a happy Polish waiter serving us champagne, he chatted with us and moved among the guests serving drinks and chatting. I didn't know at the time but he and his team were hidden amongst the venue's staff, chatting with many of the guests, serving drinks and waiting the tables; until Gavin revealed himself with a crash! I had my head in my hands thinking something was going wrong and then the show really started!!! Gavin grabbed a microphone pretending to apologise in his Polish accent for his calamity only to stun not only myself and my wife, but the entire wedding party when he started singing!!! He was then followed by another member of his team disguised as a member of the venue's management with Beauty and the Beast and then by one of the waitresses belting out Queen!!! No one wanted it to end, it was incredible! Our wedding was already a beautiful occasion, but these guys pushed it to the next level with a wow factor that our guests are still talking about 2 weeks later! Their performances got the party started, involved all of the guests and created a hyped and buzzing atmosphere for the rest of the evening. It is far too difficult to pick a favourite moment as each performance left me speechless, these guys know how to do it right, they created the perfect balance of humour and emotion to make our unforgettable special day, unforgettable for everyone. Gavin's rendition of Nessun Dorma (my all time favourite) brought everyone to tears, I get goosebumps just thinking about it. I can't thank him and his team enough, I hope I get to experience the whole thing again very soon when the video editing of the performances on the day is complete (the first clip is available on their facebook page 'Rendition of "Somebody to Love" at Bassmead' which is just a taste of what these guys can do)! Thank you guys for making the best day of our lives even better, I can't recommend these guys enough x
Wow what can we say! My wife and I had booked up the Singing Waiter Masters over 18 months ago and we really could wait to see them live at our own wedding. They really didn’t disappoint and with Julie as a planted guest made it that bit extra special. All the guests were truly mesmerized at your performances and they are still talking about it now. Nicky and I both thank you from the bottom of our hearts as you made our special day even more special. We wish you every success going forward and hope to see you at another wedding soon
When we first met Gavin at a wedding fayre, you could tell that he loved what he did. After seeing a few clips we were hooked & booked on the spot!! During the lead upto the big day, Gavin was on hand to answer any questions & was so enthusiastic. Only a few of us on the day knew about Gavin & Julie (we had 2 singers). Gavin & Julie had been posing as waiting staff & my mum (who was with me when we booked Gavin), was telling me about a lovely young waiter she’d been talking to, this turned out to be Gavin! Once in character she hadn’t realised it was him!! When Gavin took to the stage there was chaos in the room, with guests rushing to help him after he ‘fell’! It took some guests a while to figure out what on earth was going on, we had shocked faces, laughter & even tears!! We had so many comments about how phenomenal the ‘show’ was! I can’t recommend Gavin enough! Words can’t describe the joy they brought to the room!! The Singing Waiter Masters blew everyone away. I would love to see you at another wedding soon, wishing you every success in all you do. Julie & Robin Xxxx
Gavin and his team performed at my wedding yesterday! I booked it as a surprise for my groom and he was completely blown away! They were amazing and everyone couldn’t stop talking about them for the rest of the night ! We even had a few guests in tears at how amazing they were ! Honestly cannot recommend them enough , they were the highlight of mine and my husbands day! Thank you so so much ! Xx
Booked them for our wedding and they were incredible!! Song choices were perfect and they had our guests laughing, crying, smiling and everyone just had an amazing time. Cannot thank Gavin and his team enough, you will not regret booking these they are worth every penny.
On Saturday Gavin and his team performed at my wedding - I have to tell you that their whole performance was absolutely amazing - they have voices like you cannot even imagine and the nicest people you could ever ask for. The feedback from our guests had been incredible. Their whole approach throughout the day was just a joy to watch - my husband and I didn’t tell anyone that we had the waiters and that made it even better - I cannot recommend this Company highly enough - thank you so much ( I’m watching the videos now and still making me cry!! )
We had the Singing Waiter Masters perform at our wedding and it was truly amazing! Myself and my partner booked and kept it a secret from our guests, everybody commented on how amazing both actors/singers were and how they will never forget the performance. It definitely made our wedding, after seeing The Singing Waiter Masters at a wedding a few years ago I knew straight away I wanted them at my wedding. As they began performing at my wedding the reactions from the quests were amazing and I actually got emotional because of how amazing they were and that they were performing at my wedding! This act will never get old and I could listen to them over and over again!!!
You can choose to have 2, 3 or more West End and Opera performers at your wedding. All of our singing waiter packages includes a professional sound engineer with full surround sound production. We set up discreetly before anyone enters the room and sound check to ensure the best quality sound for the show. With his or her expertise, we are able to ensure theatre-like sound which surrounds your guests without overpowering them. Our engineer cues the music and controls the sound throughout the performance so it allows our actors to concentrate solely on interacting with your guests and giving a world class performance.
