Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

Poppy always tries her best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

Poppy always will provide background music to your events taste before and in the breaks of my set.

I usually need 40 minutes to set up and go and get changed so I look my best for your event.

Please message me about this, if its within my vocal range I will learn one song but if it does not suit my voice I will be sure to play it in between my set. If I do learn this song it will be an extra 30 pounds.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

When I go out singing my 40's tribute sets I tend to balance my set to ensure theres enough dance type songs and sing a long songs. I also will play swing etc from the 40's in-between sets and I also have a little friend ( a puppet ) that comes to meet everyone, which if theres children they especially love meeting Dave The Monkey and so do the adults!

Poppy has performed twice for us at the Brig N Barrel, first on for a 40s night and secondly for a 60s night. The events were fantastically well received by our customers, and Poppy is not only an excellent singer, but a very affable and engaging entertainer. She knows her audience extremely well, despite traveling from out of town to perform for us and not previously being known in the area. Both her sets for the 40s and 60s were exactly what our customers (and us too) expected and all feedback we have received from our customers has been excellent on her performances, and the nights in general when she performs. We look forward to welcoming Poppy back at our venue in the near future. Owner - Brig n Barrel, Bamber Bridge, Preston

Poppy has sang at a bar I managed and I felt she would go down really well at my mum and dads wedding annivarsry at their home which is in a sheltered accommodation. Poppy had them all singing to the songs from the 40's/50's and 60's and also had them playing a couple of party games! Poppy also sang a slow song for my mum and dad to slow dance to which was a touching moment for us all. I would definitely recommend Poppy not only is she a great singer and entertainer she is also friendly and approachable and very professional. Ian Rogers - private party - Bar Manager
