A lady who just loves to sing, LeeAnn has perfected the art of giving an audience exactly what they want, from heart-rending ballads to feel-good dance tracks, from all out cabaret to recent chart hits.

More and more people are now opting for live entertainment at their weddings instead of just a disco, and having someone there to personally sing the songs of your choice make the whole event just that little more special.
Nothing re-creates that romantic reminiscent sound of the big band era that a live vocalist singing a mix of songs you have helped choose. Or if you prefer a more contemporary feel, a live sound is so much more memorable than recorded music. The show can be also be supplied with a DJ/Master of Ceremonies/compere and background music. (see below)
If you have a favourite song special to you and your partner, it can be arranged for LeeAnn to sing the song of your choice whilst you take to the dance floor for your first dance as husband and wife. On the left are some suggestions or, with fair notice, LeeAnn can learn any song you choose, so making the day more personal to you.

DISCO
If you're booking a singer, you may be paying out for a separate disco that will only really be needed at the end of the night and for background music through the evening. Why pay out that money when LeeAnn can also provide this service at a more than competitive price. If your party is a laid back, ambient event, then, whilst LeeAnn is not performing, Ian can provide a selection of non-intrusive classic tracks whilst your guests enjoy their evening. However, if you would prefer the evening to liven up over the course of the night, then he can provide the perfect mix of suitable dance floor classics and, of course, any requests that may have been asked for in advance. He will also compere your event from start to finish taking you from early evening cocktails, a terrific show from LeeAnn through to the last dance of the evening and your waiting carriages at midnight....or beyond!

IRISH
Add a "touch of the Irish" with a terrific show featuring classic Irish ballads and singalongs.
Growing up in a musical family, LeeAnn was surrounded by music from an early age and, coming from a Liverpool family with Irish roots, family gatherings quite regularly turned into family singalongs! Listening to some Irish classic songs as a child, the music stayed in Leeann's heart and she now sings and plays some melodies and memories reflecting on many happy, and some crazy, memories of her childhood.
