Customer questions

We always try to be flexible to help ensure your event runs smoothly, good communication is key to us so don't be worried about getting in touch to discuss any concerns.

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

We can provide background music in between sets on our PA.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up an hour before the performance time.

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

Our set lists are put together to try to give the best ambiance and performance for whatever the event. We are happy to discuss your requirements and for weddings we are happy to learn your 'special' song with reasonable notice if it is not on our repertoire list.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes absolutely.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

We can learn a song that is not on our list with sufficient notice.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Clients seem to like our repertoire and the variety we offer. They enjoy the excellent musicianship of the band and for myself I sing from the heart and I think that people connect with that.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

The Cinnamon Jazz Club, Bowden, Cheshire. Pizza Express - various. Deanwater Hotel, Wilmslow. Manchester Fire Service Tutbury Castle Bury Met Radisson Hotel Manchester. Cottons Hotel, Knutsford. Amicis Italian Restaurant, Stockport. Acoustic Lounge, Poynton, Cheshire. Mario's Restaurant, Hazel Grove. Hazel Grove Golf Club Stockport County Football Club.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I have been influenced by the great jazz singers and soul singers too. Ella Fitzgerald, who was amazing has been an influence on my singing and also Dee Dee Bridgewater and Diane Reeves. Eva Cassidy and Carol King have also been great influences on me and several of their songs are in the repertoire.

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

We have played the Cinnamon Club many times over the last 15 years, which is a venue that many high profile artists play. However it was an absolute pleasure and an honour to support the late Humphrey Lyttelton and his band at that venue.

12th November 2017. Dear Sue, thankyou for starting our celebrations off so well with the songs that we had chosen, it set everyone in a very happy mood, and there were lots of lovely comments about your singing from our guests. Many thanks, Pat and Colin Moss.

A fantastic evening 'for one night only' at Stockport Plaza. Sue Barron and her band provided the evenings entertainment for our GP's retirement party. Meticulous preparation by Sue enabled all Barbara's favourite songs to be played which made an already emotional evening even better. There was something for everyone in the performance. The party was a surprise so everyone had to be installed early - the band went out of their way to fit in with this despite making the evening even longer. We would highly recommend having the Sue Barron Quartet at your party or event, it made the evening just perfect!
