About Golden Age Songbird

A Vintage Vocalist you will never forget! Perfect to celebrate classic songs from a by-gone time. Based in the North West of England
Public liability insurance of £10 million
Verified profile

Well hello there! I'm Anna the Golden Age Songbird I'm a Vintage Singer (no not that kind) specialising in classic tunes from the 20's 30's and 40's plus modern day tunes with a jazzy vintage twist! I began my professional career as a Showgirl in a Cabaret group in Cyprus and after a fabulous season of sun, sand and sequins- I decided to start my own business singing songs that I adored from the Golden Age of Musicals. This swiftly progressed to a love of Ella Fitzgerald, Vera Lynn and the Andrews Sisters and the rest is to speak! I performed at the grand opening of the art deco 1920's style bar "The Plaza" in Atherton town centre with my classic vintage jazz tunes and postmodern jukebox covers. I sing regularly luxury 17th century hotel: Holland Hall as part of their easy jazz Sunday afternoons featuring songs from Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra and many more!. And I am a fond favourite at Armed Forces and remembrance events in Wigan, St Helen's and Atherton. I am no stranger to classical performances and have frequently performed for Funerals and wedding ceremonies including singing in Latin.

It was a pleasure to sing for your lovely event Janet! I could see how much it all meant to your Dad and it was a struggle to hold back the tears at times. Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review and all the best to you and your Dad. X

Anna's performance and interaction with our party made the occasion so special. We loved her historic dress and hair, and she spent quite a while working with us on the playlist beforehand. My Mum was thrilled to bits. Thanks Anna

I would definitely recommend Anna- Golden Age Songbird. Anna was recommended by a residents daughter. The residents love seeing Anna in her uniform lovely dresses and hairstyles, singing all their favourite songs. Anna is amazing with all our residents plenty of interaction and getting them involved by listening to clips of movies and guessing what film they are from. We resently contacted Anna as one of our residents was celebrating her amazing 100th birthday, Anna was so happy to perform on her special day via the technology of Zoom due to social distancing. Anne had a wonderful day with her family who travel from far away but unfortunately couldn't come into the home but was there to celebrate when Golden Age Songbird Anna performed and joined in singing along with Anne and her favourite music from Vera Lynn 🎶. Thank you Anna for all your amazing performances over the last 14months. We can't wait to see you visiting the home again soon for more performance's. Five stars well recommend.

We booked Anna to sing at a 90th Birthday party - 1920's Gatsby style, everything from when I first contacted Anna was great. Everybody who attended the party commented on just how lovely her voice was. Thank you

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I am often told I look the part and sound the part! Singing classic vintage tunes is only half the job as the vintage hair, make-up and dress are another part of the performance. which are massively enjoyed by the audience.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I performed at the Oulton Park during their vintage car events, Armed Forces events in Wigan and St Helen's, The Plaza in Atherton (as a house singer) and McDonald Kilhey Court Hotel.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I absolutely love vintage artists! Ella Fitzgerald and Doris day are among my favourites. Their sound never goes out of style and I could listen to them all day! But there's a soft soft in my hear for Vera Lynn (the Force's sweetheart) I cover many of her classic wartime Songs which never fail to have the audience singing along!

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I featured briefly on ITV local news for singing at a 107th Birthday in Formby!

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

I always try hard to be flexible to ensure your event runs smoothly. Simply, let me know as soon as possible and I will do my best to accommodate you depending on my other commitments that day.

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

I can provide an iPod or Spotify playlist to play in-between sets, simply let me know in advance and it will be prepared for you on the day. This is all included in the cost.

How much time do you need to set up?

I require roughly 15-30 mins to set up. As soon as my PA System is set up I can play a little background music to set the atmosphere for your event.

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

That's Fine! I have several different shows all with different themes including; Rock n Roll, Wartime Memories, 1920's Gatsby which have been crafted using songs from a specific time. However, some eras and genres overlap so I'm more than happy to perform another from my songlist.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Absolutely! I have all the equipment I need . Access to an electrical socket for indoor gigs is all I require.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I am more than happy to do this for you. Let me know your requests more than 48 hours before the event and there is a fee of £10 per song for this service to take into account rehearsal and locating an instrumental backing
