PERFORMANCE INFORMATION :- ...
(also click on  ' ABOUT US' top left of page for more info..)
 
Rae can either use in house PA systems or has her own award winning YAMAHA 300watt PA which is ideal for most restaurants/members clubs/private parties etc. and has been used for audiences up to  around 200 people in a low verbosity setting
Rae has a wide repertoire of songs & backing tracks, again, examples on website

 
Pic below  = Rae performing - April 2007 at Yacht Club River Thames - London
Rae Marnie singing at Greenwich Yacht Club April 2007
Rae's image & vocal style is ideal for classy venues & events & her repertoire features well known classic standards like those heard on Smooth FM, Magic FM and Heart FM radio stations

 
Rae usually performs for 3 x 35 minute sets over a 2 hour period or 2 x 45 minute sets, but these can be extended or reduced and tailored subject to the clients' needs & requirements, including possibly catering to your specific song/s choices. If Rae has enough notice she will do her best to source a suitable backing track for her vocal & rehearse in time for your special day

Although Rae usually mixes up the set with various songs from numerous Divas/Crooners, if you wish your event to be  themed as a ...
 
TRIBUTE TO : - ...
Specific Artists-(but no 'lookalikey/soundalikey')..
Rae will do her best to accomodate 'Tribute' requests -
For example:-
TRIBUTE TO THE JAZZ/BLUES DIVAS & CROONERS OF THE LAST 5 CENTURIES : -
  
For example: -
Billie Holiday/Ella Fitzgerald/Julie London/Peggy Lee/
Sarah Vaughn/ Nat King Cole/
 
OR ... a combination of the above along with...
TRIBUTE TO THE DIVAS/CROONERS OF SOUL, JAZZ, BLUES, FOLK AND COUNTRY ROCK ERA 60s/70s/80s/90s
 
For example: -
Carole King/Dusty Springfield/Karen Carpenter/
Bette Middler/ Elkie Brooks/Eva Cassidy/Norah Jones/
Marvin Gaye/Al Green/Luther Vandross/Dionne Warwick/Dusty Springfield/
 
Rae is also able to tailor a Tribute set to
THE SONGS OF BURT BACHARACH
 
For example: -
This Girl's in Love/Walk on By/Close to You/
Anyone who had a Heart/This House is not a Home/Alfie/
Valley of the Dolls
                                  
 
During short breaks Rae generally plays carefully selected suitable music through the PA that fits with her own sets, the
venue & the clientele, this might be her
own recordings or those of similar artists
Excellent verbal & written testimonials can be viewed (click on 'About Us') Top Left of Page

Rae does not generally converse WITH the audience between songs due to the use of set, timed backing tracks, but will sometimes advise her audience between sets about the forthcoming playlist.Flexibility to interract with the audience is more appropriate/possible  if Rae's working with a resident pianist/band or guitarist, or uses her own sourced musicians
 
Rae's happy to perform with a guitarist, a pianist or band, & has, in the past, sung in duets, & with musicians in both the UK & Overseas
 
DUET & LIVE PIANIST (MULTI INSTRUMENTALIST) AS OPPOSED TO BACKING TRACKS : -
 

Rae has contact with a West End stage performer who is not only a vocalist (and can therefore duet with Rae),  but  also a multi instrumentalist playing sax, piano and guitar, who, also, given notice, may be able to accompany Rae.
Obviously fees will reflect the cost of providing additional musicians should this be desired. However, to keep costs down, as a rule, Rae uses carefully sourced backing tracks as heard on the demo mp3 covers at her reverbnation site
