About Debbie And Fernando

Acoustic duo
Public liability insurance of £2 million
A captivating acoustic duo (singer and guitarist) performing across Scotland with beautiful and original arrangements of popular cover songs

'Debbie and Fernando' are an acoustic covers duo (vocals and guitar) performing across Scotland with original arrangements of beautiful and popular songs. We focus on delivering a classy, laid back sound and an atmosphere that is pleasant and engaging without being overbearing, increasing the tempo to get people up on the dance floor for those events where this is appropriate. Debbie Abbott is a professional singer from Dundee with a beautiful voice (often described by her clients as amazing) who loves to sing many different genres from pop and rock through country to R&B, folk and jazz. She has performed at a variety of large and small events and venues across Scotland. Fernando Quintiliani is originally from Italy but now lives in Perth. He is a polystrumentalist with a particular passion and talent for playing the guitar. 'Debbie and Fernando' are available to perform across Scotland at weddings, events, private functions and also in hotels, restaurants, clubs and bars, and we have also performed on the main stage at a festival in Perth and have been featured on various radio shows broadcast live on radio stations across Scotland. We have a good repertoire of cover songs from ‘60s to current - across all genres including pop, R&B, country, jazz, soft rock and folk rock. We are happy to learn your favourite songs and we will definitely make your wedding, event or function really special. We offer a highly reliable service and are completely self-sufficient for both large or small venues with a top-end twin-tower Bose sound system and professional lighting if required.

Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

As an alternative to the standard 'Debbie and Fernando' acoustic duo line-up, Debbie Abbott will perform as a solo singer with backing tracks if you are looking for a full-on party set to finish the evening or if you are simply looking to save a little by having only one musician.

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

We always try our 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

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 hour before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

We always put together a setlist which is specifically tailored to your event and the particular ambience you are looking for, whether that is emotional beautiful songs to capture the moment, background music while guests are eating or chatting, or getting everyone up on the dance floor. You are welcome to review the setlist and suggest amendments.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

Yes our quote includes provision of a top-end twin-tower Bose sound system and we are happy to provide professional lighting if required.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list we may still already know it and, if there is a special song you'd like us to learn, we are happy to do this for you free of charge, given sufficient notice.

Fiona S, 5 months ago

We were fortunate to have the duo Debbie and Fernando playing at this venue one night. They are an acoustic duo with a great mix of their own cover arrangements of modern and classic songs and they were a real pleasure to listen to. I would definitely recommend them for anyone looking for an upbeat and engaging acoustic duo to hire for their own private event or public performance.

Pauline O, 1 year ago

Debbie and Fernando performed as an acoustic duo at our 2018 Winter Wonderland festival in Perth. Not only did they look great on the outdoor stage, their passion for their music shone during their performances. Enjoyed by all. I recommend these talented pair.
