Wendy Adams Evans

Refreshingly Different

Hi I'm Wendy, a singer based in Hampshire.

Hire a singer & solo female vocalist (you can book me directly), to entertain your guests at your party or special event in Hampshire.

Please scroll on down to read about me or use one of the white buttons to jump straight to what you are looking for:-

Welcome to my website.  I am thrilled you have found me.  I am a versatile, interactive singer and party entertainer, specialising mainly in 20th Century music but with some 21st Century music to choose from too.

From the moment you make contact, I will work with you to understand your requirements to ensure your event is memorable and fun....and just what you wanted.  Every performance is unique and I pride myself on the fabulous feedback from the wonderful people I have had the pleasure of performing for.  

I have a diverse repertoire and will put together a set list to suit your special occasion, party, corporate event or wedding.  I want your party to be amazing as much as you do.

What They Say About Me:

My lovely customers often comment on my versatility and ability to 'read the mood of the audience' during the show and adapt what I am doing to play to the atmosphere. 

My vocal coach said I have a rich, warm voice and I get the song lyrics across, delivered with feeling; this means a lot to me. 

To use the latest buzzwords, I am an interpretive singer and 360 artiste, skilled in all three performing disciplines; acting, singing and presenting.

Types of Music:

You choose the type of music in advance of the live set!  I can croon in the corner whilst guests mingle or dine....I can get a lively sing along going if you prefer to sway-and-stay in your seats....I can dance the night away with you.....or you can have all three in one night as most people have. 

I am available for:

  • pop & rock,
  • decades 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s (plus some 21st century music)
  • TV & movie music
  • vintage singer: vintage, retro, rock and roll, music hall, 20th century music
  • jazz standards & swing
  • a good mix of Motown, Rat pack, Easy Listening and the great American Songbook
  • singing waiters and other surprises
  • country & western & folk
  • worship music and hymns
  • musical theatre and show tunes
  • comedy songs
  • interactive music
  • tribute act to Kate Bush, Abba, Carpenters, Julie Andrews [star of Mary Poppins & the Sound of Music]

  • Christmas carols, Winter songs and Xmas music.

....so music entertainment from a wide variety of genres and eras.

If you would like to know more about me and how I operate, please continue to scroll down.  If you would like to jump straight to the type of entertainment you are looking for, please select from the following links for Singing Waiters,    Party Ideas   and   Vintage / Retro to get an idea of some of the shows, decades and themes I have available.

My demos can be found here: DEMO PAGE and all videos and sound clips are recorded live, no post-production or enhancements.  This is me, live.

Cost estimates can be found on the PRICES tab.

Tailoring from a Wide Range of Music:

I will research your party theme, occasion and audience type to build a suitable set list of songs and I have put together many themed events, [please click for further theme night ideas].  You can choose from an eclectic range of genres, decades and eras. 

Not many live singers cover the variety of styles I do.  One night I'm a jazz and swing singer and another day a rock and roll or vintage singer. I love a wartime sing along as much as dancing the night away to the hits of the 50s, popular 60s music and the sounds of the 1970s. 

You will always find me friendly and helpful.  I also dress for the occasion so, if you are celebrating the sixties, I will look and sound like a 1960's singer.  If you are into bygone days, I will dress in my nineteen forties vintage gown with hair sweeps like The Andrews Sisters.  With this personalised service comes good value and a memorable occasion.

Group or Soloist?

Lots of singers play with a band, I tend to play with quality backing tracks and a Bose music entertainment system or with an acoustic guitar or piano player to accompany me, if available.  My Bose P.A. system is perfect for singers like me who can hit the top notes and surprise you with very low notes too! 

I can reach the counter tenor range and, with a beautiful dress, coupled with atmospheric lighting and expressive delivery of the lyrics, the music can be enjoyed and appreciated without a guitarist or backing bands.

I can call in fellow performers if you would like carolers, flash mobs or singing waiters.  You choose the number of singers, live vocals with recorded accompaniment.


Events I am suitable for:

I have many years experience appearing at over 2,000 live events as a vocalist and compere/presenter; including:

  • corporate events, staff awaydays, company functions, office party nights, works do
  • private parties, special occasions, e.g. anniversary party, birthday party
  • wedding singer including vows renewals and civil ceremonies
  • nostalgia nights, bygone festivals, vintage music, retro events, armed forces day entertainment
  • day centres, residential care homes, older persons' music events
  • Christmas dinners, theme nights, pool or beach parties
  • surprise singing waiters, flash mobs, undercover performers, gatecrashing guests
  • social club functions, cabaret, hotel themed dinners and weekends
  • funerals and wakes
  • live background singer for drinks receptions, hotel lunches, garden parties
  • over 50s clubs, tea parties and music festivals.

So, if you are looking to book a singer who is also an entertainer with a fresh approach and an interactive, engaging style, please click "Contact" now for a no-obligation, instant quote or further information - and to check that I am available. 

Why makes my shows unique?

I bring along lots of fun props and musical instruments and make these available to guests if they want to join in.  Some of the guests get on stage with me and they are often absolutely amazing stars!  This makes me a live presenter, singer and party band - all rolled into one - so I don't have the price tag of a function band. 

I adapt the show as I go along and audience participation is very welcome but not at all compulsory!

What Makes Me Unique?

I didn't have the opportunity to learn to sing until later in life so I bring an enormous passion and gratitude that I am finally doing what I was born to do.  This enthusiasm rubs off on my audiences and ensures that I get repeat bookings from a multitude of satisfied clients...this is what drives me.  

I had 15 years experience working as an International Business Analyst in the IT Industry before re-training as a performing artiste so you will find that this extra set of skills helps me understand your preferences and requirements. 

I am a registered Dementia Friend and I am well-known for my ability to engage with guests with special needs.

Free Consultation:

I will talk you through all the options and listen to your own ideas too.   Please check out some of my great feedback here: Testimonials Wendy Adams Evans, versatile vocalist.  I have heaps of it and can provide you with much more on request!  Please give me a call and I can usually give you an instant price.

Discount:

Discounts are available for block bookings and residencies. 

Set List and Timings:

I will tailor the song list and music sets to work with your chosen schedule.  Most people have two sets with a break but I can do one long set or break the evening into two or three sections.  You can have a different song era or genres for each set if you like and I will change costumes in between.

Working as a Soloist or with a Band?

I used to sing in bands when I started out but I tend not to work with bands unless the right people are available and can be arranged separately. I have worked with a band in the past but, these days, I choose to perform as a soloist or with an acoustic guitar or pianist. Booking bands where all the members need to be available to play a gig can be tricky and affect availability, so I prefer to sing alone or with some of my guests alongside! 

I have a state of the art Bose p.a. system which has a small footprint and a beautiful sound.

My shows are ideal for those who may not have the budget for a tribute band.  My solo tribute show is the solution!

I will happily work alongside other acts and DJs and will liaise with them in advance if required.
