I offer live music for all parts of the wedding day. I can perform inside or out (weather permitting).

All packages include your choices from my repertoire of over 100 classic songs as well as background music during any breaks in the performance. Travel up to 50-miles from Lichfield, Staffs is also included in the price.
How far in advance should I contact you?
To avoid disappointment I would recommend getting in touch as soon as your date and venue are confirmed.
What style of music do you offer?
I perform classic songs from the 1920s, 30s and 40s. It's elegant, easy listening suitable for any part of the wedding. The music creates an atmosphere that never overwhelms conversation.
Type of musical group:
Solo male vocalist using the very best possible backing tracks.
Size of musical group:
I have over 100 songs in my repertoire, all from the 1920s, 30s and 40s. There is a full list on my website which is regularly updated as new titles are added.
Is it possible to request something that is not in the repertoire?
Absolutely! Providing I can find a suitable backing track I will happily perform songs that are not currently in my repertoire. There is a small fee for such requests. Please get in touch for more details.
I have been performing for over a decade during which time I've sung at hundreds of weddings and events across the country.
Do you have your own equipment?
Yes. I am fully self-contained with vintage-style microphone and a flexible PA suitable for parties of up to 200. I also have a portable, Bluetooth speaker and wireless microphone which means I can even sing outside (weather permitting!).
Are you able to travel?
Yes. I'm based in Lichfield, Staffordshire, but will travel anywhere in the UK.
Is there a charge for travelling?
The first 100-miles of the round-trip from Lichfield are included in the basic price. Additional mileage is charged at 50p-per-mile.
Do you cover more than one wedding a day?
As a rule, no.
Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?
I handle every single booking myself, guaranteeing a truly personal service.
What is the length of time of the act?
Minimum booking is one-hour after which you can add as many additional 30-minute blocks to create the package you require. (The exception, of course, are wedding ceremony bookings which last the duration of the ceremony, however long that may be).
How much time do you need to prepare for an act?
I' like to have at least an hour before the agreed start time to set up and soundcheck my equipment, but I can manage with less if absolutely necessary. Get in touch to discuss your own circumstances and we can work something out.
Do you charge per hour or per event?
My fee will be tailored to fit your personal requirements. The fee is payable in two installments - 50% as a deposit at the time of booking and the remainder is due on the day of the wedding. Please feel free to get in touch to discuss your plans and get a no-obligation quote.
If needed, would you be able to work extra hours
If you need to extend your booking at a later that's no problem. I'll tailor a quite for the extra time and any additional cost is simply added to the outstanding balance due on the day of the wedding.
What are the forms of payment?
You can pay your deposit by cheque or electronic transfer. The balance can be paid by cash or cheque on the day or by electronic transfer in advance.
Reviews for Simon Partridge - The Vintage Singer
Recommended by 100% of couples
Amazing in every way!
Amazing in every way! Simon played during our wedding breakfast and he could not have been more perfect. I had so much going on with work prior to the wedding but completely trusted the playlist he proposed.Sent on 21/05/2019
He arrived and set up without anyone noticing, started singing as we sat down for food which set the scene for such a relaxed and enjoyable evening...I will need to arrange another party just to have him back!
We totally recommend Simon to everyone who is looking for a touch of vintage style for their occasion. We found him online. We were looking for a 1920s/30s singer and he was perfect. Simon sang during our meal and made our wedding day really special. We were worried he wouldn’t be able to travel all the way to London, but he was more than happy.
