For the ultimate vintage wedding why not entertain your guests with the music of vintage wedding singer, Simon Partridge. He’ll provide you with the perfect backdrop of vintage wedding music at your reception, singing a range of songs from the 1920′s through to the 1950′s. And he definitely looks the part too!
Simon is really passionate about what he does and clearly loves entertaining all the guests with his music. When it comes to choosing the songs he sends the couple his repertoire list so that they can let him know of any favourites that they would like to be sung. And here he is on his newly released Youtube video
And here is another one from his repertoire
PENNIES FROM HEAVEN sung by Simon
I asked Simon a couple of questions: Why sing vintage songs at weddings? and What do you particularly like about singing music from this era?
“One word – elegance. It isn’t just nostalgia that prompts so many couples to adopt vintage themes for their wedding, I think it’s a genuine longing for a style and sophistication that’s sadly absent from so much of life today. Music has the unique ability to short-cut the conscious mind and tap straight into the emotions and that’s just what songs like “The Way You Look Tonight” and “Cheek to Cheek” do – the moment you hear them you’re instantly transported to a bygone era of elegance and romance. I challenge anyone not to smile and tap their foot when they listen to the songs I sing!
The other reason is that I simply love singing great songs and these are some of the greatest songs ever written. And to sing them for people in love on the happiest day of their lives?! Well, to quote Irving Berlin, “Heaven. I’m in heaven.”
Prices start from £300 for an hour set. For more info go to Simon Partridge where you can also listen to more of his songs. I’d really love to get some feedback on this – what do you guys think?
