Surprise Singers (The Singing Policemen)

If you want real fun as well as fantastic music, first class singers and amazing performers, then this is the act for you!

SCENARIO 1
Disguised as Policemen our crack squad will arrive at the scene of your incident at the designated time. They will cause quite a disturbance as your guests will believe them to be the real thing. They will call for calm in the room and ask your guests to remain seated. They will then ask the ‘Suspect’ or ‘Suspects’ to make themselves known to the police; the suspects being grassed up (pre-selected) by the client.

The ’Suspect(s)’ will then be questioned and their tables cordoned off with Police tape. The Suspects will then be sung their rights and subsequently arrested. The entire company present will then be serenaded (with operatic voices set to stun) by the officers in attendance, much to the surprise and delight of all witnesses present. The music performed can be a mixture of pop, operatic favourites as well as popular show songs. The duration of the arresting performance will be approximately 25 minutes. We refuse to go quietly! 

SCENARIO 2
Essentially the same as scenario one with one exception: no one is arrested. Instead, the entire room is cautioned; The Singing Policemen will call for calm in the room and ask your guests to remain seated. They will then notify the guests that an official complaint has been made by a neighbour (or pre-selected member of the party) concerning the noise level: ‘It has NOT reached the required level!’ The guests will then be asked to raise the jollity in the room by joining in with The Singing Policemen.

SONG LIST
Songs can include, amongst others:

  • You Raise Me up (Westlife)
  • Love Changes Everything (Aspects of Love-Lloyd Webber)
  • La Donna Mobile (Rigoletto-Verdi)
  • Abba Medley
  • Grease Medley
  • Nessun Dorma (Taurendot- Puccini)


FAQ

When does the show normally start?
We usually start the surprise acts after the main course has been eaten and cleared.

What music do you sing? Just opera?
They use a mixture of music in their shows, ‘Everything from Opera to Abba’. The musical content is created around the singers particular vocal strength so if you wanted a more operatic show, then our Opera Singers would be booked on it and if you wanted a more energetic party style show then contemporary musical theatre singers would be booked. They also sing a great selection of Rat Pack music too.

Can we pick the songs you sing?
Their songs and script have been pre learnt and rehearsed and you can choose preferred solos and duets (subject to artist availability) from their song list. There is a clear and successful structure to the act which is overseen by our creative director and has been successful for over 15 years. If a client wants a particular song to be performed that would have to be especially learnt, an additional fee would be added, and the song would have to be within the keeping and class of the act.

Sound and music; are mics and soundmen needed?
For any event where there are 40+ guests listening, a good quality sound set up is necessary. The singers backing tracks and microphones must be operated by a professional sound man and our sound men know the shows and have all the equipment required.

Just wanted to send you a note to say that Rick was just such a rock star on our stand this week at Black Hat Europe.  He is just such a super chap and totally wonderful to work with.  He just rocks up and gets on with things, we had some issues with our cabling and he sorted that out and then just keeps rolling all day.  He chats away with all the ‘customers’ and is a joy to work with.  All our team at Carbon Black, just love him.
