Funerals2 musicians
Throughout life music can be a source of great enjoyment and pleasure. It is often a wonderful expression of emotion and plays a part in some of our most memorable moments. Sometimes it is difficult to choose the right music for a funeral or to be able to sing owing to the emotions at the time. Tesoro are experienced artists available to sing at your loved ones funeral whether you want an entrance or farewell song or maybe a small choir to lead the congregation throughout the service. We can offer a range of choices from solo pieces to duets, groups, choirs or ensembles and have a large selection of songs and music in our repertoire from popular hymns, musicals, ballads, classics, pop and opera. Tesoro are highly experienced, accomplished professional performers whose aim is to help you in a sympathetic and non intrusive way choose the right program for your service.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our interaction and flexibility.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Individually, Royal Albert Hall and O2 Arena.

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

The National Falklands 40th celebration to high-ranking Navy and MPs, and the HMS Queen Elizabeth Christmas Homecoming

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?


Do you have different line-up options?

We can travel with a small choir (approx 8persons)

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?

Of course. We always play background music during our break and after our sets (approx 15mins at most whilst packing down).

How much time do you need to set up?

Depending on space and equipment requests 30 - 60 minutes.

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

Yes, of course. We tend to prefer a list of suggestions(not a rigid set list) and then gauge the audience/gathering on the day.

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

Yes. Please let us know if we require extra lighting or stage effects or projections.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We would need at least 2 weeks for this and it will depend if we can source or create a backing track. But do ask, we may already have it.
