Debbie and Fernando have now performed for us twice. We married during covid so we had a smaller wedding day with close family and friends. We were so impressed with their performance the first time that we booked them immediately for our larger evening celebration which we had a year later. I can’t recommend them enough. Debbie has an amazing voice and is very professional. Everyone commented on how good they were and the dance floor was full from start to finish. Everything went very smoothly - the initial booking, communication prior to the event and then the performance itself. If you have a special song or two that they don’t already have in their large repertoire, Debbie and Fernando will learn them for you. Thank you so much Debbie and Fernando xxx

Debbie was fantastic from the word go, very professional and friendly, asking all about our plans and songs we liked or disliked and our favourite music types and eras. Debbie and Fernando arrived in great form and right from the first song they had our guests tapping their feet and dancing. Their lighting and sound was really professional. We had a fantastic evening and all our guests said they had a fabulous night and how much they loved the music. We would highly recommend Debbie and Fernando and we would definitely book them again. Thank you guys so much for a fantastic evening to remember! Sandra & Charlie, Inverness

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.
