Acts for hire

Charlie is a very versatile singer and pianist, with a few acts for hire.  She is available as a singer-pianist, a solo singer and as a vintage act. Charlie comes fully contained with her own piano and P.A so you don't need to worry about a thing.  

Charlie is available as a solo singer with backing track accompaniment, a particularly good choice if you already have a P.A in your venue and not a lot of space to work with.  Or if you have a big venue and want a big sound.  Her backing track acts so far are:

  • Vintage Singer - with hits from the 20's to the 50's, and vintage costumes, this act is perfect for a suave function or maybe tea-party?
  • Party Starter - with a set-list that will have even the grumpiest of people up on the dance-floor, this act is perfect for birthdays and celebrations like New Year's Eve!

You can get in touch with Charlie directly by using the contact form on this website.


Charlie is also proud to work with Warble Entertainment, and if you would like the security of booking with an agency, please feel free to contact them to hire Charlie either via email or by telephone on: 01270 506 686.
